Proof in my hands

Well, so much for not blogging again until the first week of teacher training is over.

How can I resist saying that today I held the proof copies of Daisy Chain in my hands?

Every time I looked at the book, I broke into a smile, acknowledging that it's finally here! Many things are "finally here". Worth the work. Worth the wait.

Patience pays.

I won't post an image of the novel, but I love how it looks. I love the simplicity and minimalism of the cover. And I love seeing the text on pages, between two covers. The whole package gives the content a whole new energy and meaning.

Once the proof copy has been proofread, I will send it back to the States, the publishers will make the necessary changes . . . and then Daisy Chain will be ready for the road! Hopefully in time for this.
