Timeline for the Final Phase

      Comments Off on Timeline for the Final Phase

We are getting so much closer to having a book on the shelves! I recently received the below timeline for the final phase of getting the book finished, and I’m happy to say we are a little ahead of schedule even though ultimately we are behind the schedule I originally thought we would have.

I had to take the picture below a few times. I love the wall hanging you see in the background, but the first few times I attempted my book selfie I only captured the part of the wall hanging that said ‘give up’ and I thought that might not be appropriate for the picture of me holding the book I’ve dreamt about for so many years!

Thank you to those who have been following my journey and who have supported me. I am anxious to share the book with all of you!
