Smile Because It Happened


My book "Smile Because It Happened" is undergoing copyediting.  What does this mean?  Well, it means that my manuscript is being reviewed and adjusted by my publisher for any technical issues that my be present. This is the first step in the publishing process.

When copyediting is finished my manuscript will be moved to a conceptual editor to be further checked for any grammatical errors.  

My copy editor reviews my manuscript for technical errors, checking for correct punctuation, misspellings, and formatting ~ (scripture and dialogue).

My conceptual editor works more in depth with my manuscript.

Copyediting is a one - month process so it will be completed at the end of July.  Conceptual editing begins in August!

Right now it looks like my release date will be April 2012 ~ My birth month, the month my daughter Nicki died...Remember --- the book is based around her life and death.

I'm so a bitter sweet way...

Thank you for your support, and for your prayers - I still need them, and I'm so very thankful.
