The Christmas goal of self-publishing Mom's book is Sunday...and I'm changing the goal and the deadline. We're reaching higher, people.
I'm still going to finish editing the book, gather blurbs, and have a dust jacket designed...but for the purpose of submitting to a half dozen publishing houses by the end of January (giving Abrams first crack, of course.).
I've received too much feeback and coaching from people that self-publishing is not the way to go with this book. Between the perfect tie-in with Mom's Cancer and the Legendary Author who may very well give a blurb, we're shooting for the stars.
Mom would be very pleased.
