Today I spent almost three hours getting my butt in gear and using Createspace.com to create a proof copy of Songbird. No, I haven't given up hope that I'll meet that perfect agent, nor am I self-publishing, but I needed something to motivate me in the next step of the process for Songbird. I need to query more. I've sent out a total of nine queries and had four rejections so far. I can't keep waiting, but it just seems surreal. I continually doubt whether I'll ever get an agent, much less get published. So I am now anxiously awaiting my proof copy so that I can actually see my name in print. The picture above is what the front and back cover will look like. If you've had the opportunity to read Songbird you'll probably understand why I chose a swing instead of a bird for the cover.
As for how good Createspace is, well that remains to be seen. Once I hold my book in my hands, I'm hoping I'll be able to say they're fantastic :) Once I get it in the mail I'll take a better picture.
