This is my first novel. And I am proud of this accomplishment. It took 7 years to finish. What makes it even more special is I also designed the cover front and back and the website. And was involved in the interior layout process as well. Being so actively involved in the entire process from writing, to editing, to designing the book and site as taught me about the inner working of the publishing industry. I have all the respect in the world for the writers, editors, and marketing teams who do this amazing work.
