CAMPAIGN FUNDS AND PUBLICATION UPDATES!
Before I go on into the updates, once again, thank you all who have supported the Fit for Joy project: my family, friends, and Facebook supporters.
The new book launch date is August 30, 2018.
The book is being published by Rowe Publishing. Thank you Sherri Rowe for believing in me and my message. We expect the book release month to be June 2018.
While preparing the manuscript for self-publishing, I came across a literary agent. He kindly introduced my work to some publishers, one of which showed strong interest, however, the manuscript wasn't ready. From this introduction, the possibility to publish Fit for Joy traditionally became substantial.
Thank you Michael Ebeling!
At this time, the manuscript is being revised to comply with traditional publishing standards. It could take six months to a year (or longer,) for publication.
Some weeks back, I personally contacted all of you by email and text message with this update. Let me know if you didn't receive it.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
I profoundly appreciate your understanding and patience.
It's very important to me that you receive a meaningful and well-written book!
I'll keep you posted throughout the publishing process.
