October begins! This is the month my novel, The Blue Jar, enters the world as an e-book. At some point, the book may appear in paper form as well. And what writer doesn’t dream of holding her book in her hand? I try to be realistic, but I am a writer and an artist. I don’t lack for flights of imagination.
One thing about working with a publisher is the sense of validation having someone else want to help make your novel a reality. Not everyone needs this sort of validation, but I certainly do. I’m neurotic enough as it is. If I were going on this publishing journey on my own, I’d be a real mess.
As the countdown to my publication date begins (October 12th!), I want to acknowledge the hard work and faith my publisher, Plum Tree Books, has put into my novel. It has changed my life for the better.
Thank you, Niamh.
