This was a lot of information. More than I expected. But everything shared put things into perspective and gives me a lot to think about in terms of publishing my book.

My book was my second baby until some little girl came along and stole my focus. I wrote EVERY word of my 580-page novel. Thank you Upland Avenue for the support and for believing in my crazy imagination! If you are an aspiring author, take your talent to Upland Avenue!
