I received the final proof yesterday, and everything looks great! You can order a copy here, but if you’re going to attend my book signing on April 4 (Subterranean Books, 7-8PM), please wait to purchase a copy there. I will have plenty available, and want to sell a lot onsite. Thanks so much, and I hope you enjoy it!
At least, I hope it it. Let me say, for the next book, I’m paying a professional to format the paperback. I have no patience with word processors, and this has definitely been the most technically difficult part of the entire process. I think I finally have it right though. After countless hours fighting with headers and footers and margins, I ordered the 3rd proof copy today. I tediously flipped through every single page with CreateSpace’s online reviewer. The proof will be here Monday, so I’ll flip through every page, probably ask my dad to do the same (he has a very good eye and is very meticulous), and once I’m satisfied, I’ll order copies to sell at the signing on April 4, and for people who can’t make the signing but want an autographed copy.
Speaking of, if you do want an autographed copy of Divided, but don’t live in St. Louis/can’t make the signing for whatever reason, drop me a note with your email address and home address via my contact page. I’ll get in touch with you and tell you how much shipping will be, and you can pay me via PayPal, so you won’t have to pay multiple back and forth shipping costs. If you can let me know soon, please do so, so I can be sure to order enough copies next week. But if not, that’s ok, I’ll order more if the need arises.
I’ll be so glad once I order the final copies to sell. Then I’ll really feel like this book is 100% complete and I’ll be able to completely focus on Ravaged, the sequel.
