New Goal Deadline

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.

Just wondering...Have you posted any of this book on your blog? I have gotten a couple of nibbles from agents and producers trolling the blogosphere and I'm sure a story as compelling as yours would get lots of attention. I'm not knocking self-publishing, which I know nothing about. Come to think of it I know nothing about the other way, either. Best wishes either way for a happy, healthy new year. JGTH
