This is a big day. Since it became clear that the Indiegogo campaign was going to succeed, I’ve been preparing a final draft of the novel to send to the editor. Last night at 11 p.m., I finished that draft. The memory stick pictured above contains the draft that is as good as I can make it. I’ll have to go through my files to figure out how many drafts have brought me to this point. I suspect the one I’m sending today is the number 9 or 10.
Nonetheless, I have feelings of great hope and trepidation. Years of work come down to clicking ‘send’ on an email.
