My latest project is complete — Illustrated & Alliterated: An Alphabet Book. As you can imagine it contains, illustrations and alliterations. Twenty-six of them exactly. During the process of creating the alliteration I had to substitute commonly used adjectives (and other word types, but mostly adjectives) with adjectives not used as much in the everyday for the sake of having all the sound and letter requirements for an “alliteration” correct. It didn’t take me long to realize that in addition to the illustrations and alliterations, a glossary would be necessary. And so, the end of the book contains a glossary that lists and defines every single word used to build the alliterations, which describe the illustrations. …. I wonder how many times I can use the words “illustration” and “alliteration” in this paragraph, admittedly my fingers stumble over them on the key board each time, perhaps when I’m done I will be a pro at typing the words ….
But now that it’s done. I have to wait.
Wait for the proof to be delivered — I’ve been checking the status of its creation multiple times a day, and crossing my fingers each time that it’ll say “shipped” and not “fulfilling.”
Wait for the iBookstore to either accept or reject it for distribution as an eBook.
Wait for it to be accepted or rejected (pending how the proof looks) by BN.com and Amazon.com for paperback distribution.
I’m not very good at waiting, you should know. In fact, just typing about it is making me even more antsy.
I want to see it all up and complete already!! ::sigh:: I guess I’ll just have to keep sitting here and waiting. >.<
(I’ll let you know when the waiting part is over!)
