Wow, I Just Finished Writing a Novel: Now What?

If you can’t tell by the title, my big news today is that I am putting the finishing touches on my first novel, Feast Island! This has been a huge work-in-progress over the past two and a half years and now it’s ready to leave the nest. Well, soon anyway.

So what’s next? Well, for starters, I’m sending it out to my beta readers tomorrow. I’ve found an editor who will do content editing for me too. Between 13-15 of us, I’m hoping we catch all the mistakes. Hoping…

After all this, I will then make the final adjustments and polish my manuscript until it sparkles. At this point, I am considering self-publishing since I’m impatient, but…we’ll see what happens in the next two weeks.

I will also be launching an author fan page on Facebook this week AND (drum roll) my website (in the next few weeks)! I cannot wait to share all this with the world and am optimistic about where this will lead me. It’s truly been a labor of love, sprung from my dreams and now very tangible.

As soon as I catch my breath and get more than 5-6 hours of sleep a night for a few days, I will update everyone on the progress. Until then, stay tuned…
