Headed to Print

I've been sent my final, last chance to find mistakes, layout and design. I found two more mistakes, but otherwise, it looks great! I am sending in the corrections for the final two changes then it's off to print. It should be done and at the print department no later than Wednesday.
Once it's sent to print, I hear from my marketer! That's when I'll get to hear what kind of ideas they have, share what ideas I have and order my first shipment of books. I'm excited! Finally, it's almost come to fruition...my first published book!
It's been over a year since I was offered the contract and 7, almost 8 months since production began...I'm busting with anticipation.
Pre-sales have been going good, but there is still time to be one of the first 50 to get a signed and numbered copy of Old Acquaintances. Don't miss your chance to get a numbered copy of my debut novel!
Stay tuned for my first experience with marketing...:^}

Book Review of Missing Andy by Lori A. Moore

‘Missing Andy’ by Lori A. Moore is a well written story that gives you an unusual view point in grieving the loss of a loved one. Lori puts her grief, and how she handled it, in this heartfelt story. Not only that, she does it from the view point of someone most people never consider, the ex-wife. Lori shares her pain and the unexpected events that were caused by Andy’s death in a way that shows her faith, love, strength and, yes, her weaknesses. With her love of God and the strength He provides, along with the support of her husband, Lori allows herself to grieve. Lori shows that it’s okay to cry, to grieve, to mourn and to do it at your own pace. The dreaded words, ‘it’ll get easier as time passes’ isn’t what ‘Missing Andy’ is about. It is about learning to deal with the loss and to come to terms in your own way and by continuing to honor your loved one’s wishes…It’s about love. I recommend this book to anyone that has suffered loss of a loved one; it just might be what they need.
