So, I received a pair of proof copies of "the novel".
I can see there are already areas that need updating and correcting. Ack! The online publishing / print on demand service recommends to do three sets of proofs because there's always something you're going to miss... Thanks to SJ for tips.
This is very exciting yet tiring. It's almost like being pregnant and having false labour. Just come out already! I love you baby. I created you and think you are so beautiful. I want you to greet the world, this mixed-up yet promising world. I hope people will think you are beautiful too.
