Okay, so, "The Vagrant's Tale" has now been submitted to Createspace - cover and all - for them to decide if it meets all of their formatting rules. The process of getting the pages of the pdf file made to just the right size was actually somewhat completely annoying - and bordered on the territory of technological voodoo - but its finally all over with, assuming they like the file and all. If all goes according to plan, I might be recieving my proof copy sometime next week. I definitely couldn't have gotten this far without the support of everone who kept reading the early draft.
By the way, the print edition of the book - outside of already being heavily revised for continuity and readability - has a brand new never before seen 14 page epilogue story added to it. It also has a complete pronounciation guide on all the names and terminology featured in the story. For those of you who were waiting for the print edition to finally check the whole thing out, I hope the entire thing doesn't dissapoint you in the slightest. I've spent about 3 years of my life writing this from start to self publishing, so here's hoping it was all worth it.
Note, because the book was at 300 pages where it currently stands, I cut out the plans to include the aformentioned promised guide on my advice to successfully finishing your own book. To make up for this promised material not making it, I will soon be putting it up here for everyone who might have been looking forward to it.
To think, soon I'll be a published writer...
