I want to share some big news with y’all! After three months, which is why I named this post after one of my favorite Beatles songs, I have finally submitted my novel to Barnes and Noble Press! It was such a long journey; I started writing this back in May, finished my first draft in June, and spent all of July and most of August editing, revisiting, and desperately trying to format. I shed many tears of frustration, but it was all worth it in the end. Granted, B&N Press still has to approve everything, but I’m feeling pretty good about it.
While this was meant to be for my senior project at school (meaning that I cannot make money off it), I am looking forward to spending even more time with this book in order to genuinely self publish by next summer.
Cover reveal will be this Friday during TYWI’s Open Mic Night on Instagram! (@tywiorg)
*Here’s a fun collage I created when I spent a few hours writing my draft outside! If you’re a writer as well, what kind of things do you like to have close by?*
