Novel Update

My novel is currently in the proofreading stage. After which, I'll send it off to have the interior designed, finish up the exterior design (spine + back cover), then get everything uploaded to Createspace and online retailers. It's been a long process, but I've learned a lot and talked with a lot of smart people in the publishing world. I definitely think I'll do it again, as I've seemed to have gotten over the learning curve. However, for my next book, I'd like to do a picture book about China that I've already started. Will post more news about that when its closer to fruition.
