One Step Closer!!

Woo Hoo!!!

Got my galley for "Shut Up & Kiss Me" and started going through it with a fine-toothed comb for typos and formatting errors, etc. Finally, FINALLY I feel like it might actually get published.

Now I have to think "promotion" ... dear heavens.

And, I already have this huge, heavy pit in my gut thinking about people actually READING the story and praying they like it. GAH. It's almost more nauseating than when I initially submitted the thing, and that was pretty dang bad.

Trying to think positive ... but prepare for the negative. Sounds like a plan, right?

How about you? Have any of you gotten any "not-so-good" reviews on your published works? If so, how did you handle it? Give this erotic romance newbie some advice, please...

In the meantime, I'll be finishing up my galley and sending it back to my wonderful editor.

And trying not to vomit.

lol! Interesting title. I once did a fanfic with it. (different genre though)

I'm sure you'll do great. WRP is a pretty good publisher. Love your cover--so sexy. ;o)

Aithne,

"Shut Up & Kiss Me" wasn't my actual submitted title, lol -- the editor didn't think my original title was sexy enough *G*

And, I've been pleased with WRP so far. My editor has been wonderful. Tough, but wonderful.

Thanks for your comment!

vbg Yes, it's a sexy title.

As to tough editors--they are the best! You'll come through the experience with new knowledge and it'll be so ingrained that you'll carry it over into your writing with ease.
