Sometime this month, I should receive ARCs from my publisher. It will be the first time I see the Hatbox Murders in print — if you don’t count the half dozen times I printed the book loose-leaf at staples so I could edit the whole thing before showing it to anyone. This time, everything will be (should be) polished and presentable.
If I’ve learned anything from the book industry so far, it’s been that publishing keeps its own pace, and that pace isn’t committed to speed.
So, I’m waiting patiently, but I’m very excited.
