Submitted the third and final set the hard material for my book, text, illustrations [interiot/front cover], and back cover information to CreateSpace. My book now moves to the next step, and it will be about 3-4 days before their design team will begin working with me to begin to "sculp" these sections into the final product. The setback came when I inquired when my book will be available on Amazon; I answer I received advised me that it could take up to eight months. Perhaps, keeping my eyes, toes, and eyes crossed, it will take less.
While I'm waiting for this to occur, I can start setting up the marketing plan for my book.
