This last year I have been my own timekeeper when it comes to the book. If I wanted to work all night long and watch the sunrise before sleeping, I could do that. If I wanted to teach myself how to use Adobe (and harass everyone I knew for help), I could do that.
If I wanted to ask my best friend to draw a picture for the cover of the book, I could do that.
So here I am: with a 99% finished product on my hands and I have been sharing the book with people I trust. Several of them have recommended to me to work with an agent.
So here I am, poised, ready and willing to fire - Waiting for Godot. Carrots anyone?
