As my writing page describes, this has been a long journey. I wrote the novel, thinking it was a simple task to create it, but I gradually found that there is more to publishing than just writing a draft and revising it once or twice.
I used a developmental editor and a proofreader to finalize the novel, and then hired a cover designer for the final cover. All were worth it.
The novel went live yesterday, and I have made my first sales.
