Good day readers!
All is moving wonderfully with THE LOVE FOOL publication. As many of you already know, the official release date is 13 March 2018.
You can now see THE LOVE FOOL listed on prominent retailer websites like Barnes & Noble, Amazon, but more importantly on IndieBound - where readers can find their local independent bookseller and hopefully pre-order. (More on this later.)
We are in the final stages of completing the book cover design. I’m working with a designer recommended by the wonderful staff at Inkshares. And I cannot wait to share it with you all.
As far as the publication process, the manuscript should be in the galley proof stage by now, and would be coming to me for another review sometime soon. We’re on schedule for the March release and it is super exciting.
The official THE LOVE FOOL website will be coming early 2018.
I’ve also been working on other publications: I’ve been contributing to a lifestyle, food and travel magazine called Intermezzo Magazine; and you’ll see a classic aperitivo drink recipe I contributed to SIP the Magazine – a cocktail focused publication. Look for them in your local newsstand, bookstore or subscribe to each (see links).
I wish you all a festive holiday season, a Merry Christmas, and a happy & safe new year!
We have a release date: MARCH 13, 2018
If you follow me on social media, you already knew this.
As you can imagine, this is absolutely exciting!
I’ve already got the first rounds of edits back from the copy editor and I’ll be hard at work on the notes. Wow guys! This is really happening and I cannot believe it. Round 1 has begun!
Keep up to date with the process by monitoring my social media or checking The Love Fool page here on Inkshares.
One super excited author,
p.s. The Inkshares team are pretty awesome to work with. I hope I didn’t annoy them yet....
I recently heard from Inkshares and it looks like a production schedule should be coming my way. This is great news! It means we are closer to getting the book in your hands. I am waiting for final confirmation on the release date and will announce as soon as I get it. The production and publishing process does have several steps so it will take some time. The manuscript has to go through a round of Inkshares edits that may or may not be needed. This process usually takes about a month or so. In addition, the document itself needs to be set up for printing, making sure all the text lines up correctly for each page. And, not to mention assigning an ISBN number to make the book available for retail. Plus, we have to finalize the book cover. There’s a lot more detailed items, but that’s the gist.
In the meantime, I wanted to share some other EXCITING NEWS: I have recently become a contributor to Intermezzo Magazine – a food and travel publication available by subscription, at bookstores, or newsstands across the country. My first contribution – a gorgeous photo of potatoes – can be seen in the current issue available now; and I’m working on something for the next/future issue.
Final note: The Love Fool website is moving along. I will update as soon as it’s ready to launch.
Things are bubbling, so that’s good news.... Ciao for now! -LP
