Now What?

We hit the targeted number of 24 stories for the non-fiction group effort anthology Slices of Life featuring selected stories from eleven writers! At this point, the writers are:

Sheri de Grom
Koji D. Kanemoto
Teresa Karlinski
Mimi Krumholz
Kimberly Laettner
E.H. Landell
Sherri Mathews
Mike O’Connor
Darla Richter
Bill Webb
and me

I’m proud to be involved in a project involving such fine people and writers!

So now what? I’m waiting for the last few bios from some of the writers so I can send everything to the professional editor and to the marketing video creator.

Then the editor’s recommendations will be returned to the writers for their blessing or possible changes.

When that’s done it will all be sent to the interior layout and cover designer.

She’ll send suggestions for same to me and once I like what I see I’ll send it to the printer.

The printer will then send electronic and physical proofs to me.

Once I okay them, the book is sent to and is often listed for sale a day or two later.

With the wonderful creations of so many talented writers this project is a step closer to becoming a reality. Thank you all for your trust, friendship, and support.

With love,
