Indie April.

To my dearest friends and followers,

This week has been absolutely crazy for me!!
It all started last week when I finished the final edits and revisions of my book and I was ready to format it and then upload it to IngramSpark. Basically, what sort of happened was, my laptop kinda went kaput and I needed a new one.

I had a deadline of the 31st of March (because there was a promo going on that expired on said date). The laptop wasn't supposed to arrive until Sunday evening/night, which meant I had basically a day and a half to format my entire manuscript and cover. Thankfully, it arrived TWO days ahead of schedule which was completely unexpected!!
I was able to download and install Adobe InDesign and format my book with the help of this video (huge thank you to the man who uploaded it)!! 

Anyhow, I finished formatting the entire book and cover on Monday evening... 
I also uploaded it to IngramSpark and got the title approved!! They then sent me the eproof. Several live chats, emails, and a phone call later, I have the physical proof on its way to me. It should arrive later today or possibly tomorrow. XD
I'm so excited as I'm nearing the end of this long process!! Of course I still have a lot of marketing to figure out and do, but I'm so ready to have my book in print.

The release date for my upcoming novel is April 25th, 2020!!
I didn't really plan to have it released this month, but it sort of works out in time for #indieApril.
Here is the link to check out more about my book and take a look at the cover. I'm still trying to figure out my new laptop, so that's why I didn't attach a photo of the book cover here and why the photo in the link I attached might be a little bit blurry.

Thank you so much for reading!! I'm looking forward to updating you about my book these next three weeks as we get closer and closer!!
Stay safe, stay inside, and read more books!! Support local, support indie. #indieApril

Yours truly,
Me
