I met with my publisher today. She cleaned up my manuscript, GROWING UP LATELY, and got it into a downloadable format. Then we sent it off to be copyrighted. We’re in the process of getting it formatted the ereader sites, such as Kindle and the Nook. That’s the next step, sending my manuscript off for approval. Honestly, this is all new to me, and I’m just happy to be along for the ride. My original launch date was March 1, 2013. But now that things are moving so fast, thanks to my marvelous editor, it looks like I can move it up to February 1, 2013. Which suits me just fine, because I am soooooo impatient. Also, I’m moving along with FACEBOOKING WITH MONA, and hope to have that book launched no later than July 1, 2013. Seriously, Mona has just taken off and become her own person. So the writing is merely a matter of my following her along and writing it all down. Just like Amanda in GROWING UP LATELY. Once I got her voice, it just seemed like she took over. All I had to do was document it.

I am also pleased to have gotten the copyright form GROWING UP LATELY now, while it’s still 2012. That way, I published my first novel this year, and will do FACEBOOKING WITH MONA next year. I also have a third manuscript planned, and hope to complete that by the end of 2013. Only time will tell if I can continue to write at my current speed. So much depends on the actual characters, and how they are able to come to life.

As for now, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year :-)
