Well, I did it! I published my first book. It was rather unceremonious, actually. Once the millions of re-re-re-rechecks were finished, all I had to do was click the “Save and Publish” button and it was done. No fanfare, no balloons falling from the ceiling, no ticker tape parade. It takes 12-72 hours to get it out on Amazon/Kindle for purchase, so I guess there will be a lot of thumb twiddling for the hours ahead.
