So I’ve written a book…

Yeah, who hasn’t written a book now-a-days?

Seriously, though, I have written a book. I am in the editing phase now. To be honest, I’m in about the fiftieth editing phase, but I’ve gotten all of the scenes written for this one so it’s the first full-fledged editing phase. That’s saying something, right?

Now I am tasked with submitting my manuscript to publishers, but I have no idea where to start! Do I just send my manuscript out to whatever publishers I find online? Who can I trust with my baby? Am I so desperate to be published that I would put my characters, and their lives, in jeopardy?

I am excited to be so close to finished, but I am also overwhelmed. Not to mention terrified. I’m sure every author goes through this, but that does not guarantee my future as an author.

Deep breaths.
