I sent my final manuscript and cover images for Secrets in Storyville to CreateSpace and I received confirmation from them yesterday that my book is good to go. Since this is my first time self-publishing, I ordered a copy of the book for review - as they recommended - and I should receive it in about a week. Once I proofread it, I'll give the go ahead to publish and, according to CreateSpace that will happen by the end of June.
To say I'm excited is an understatement. I'll admit this has been one stressful undertaking because it was all new to me. But, with help from my friends, I did it!
