TRANSPARENT First Pass!


So it turns out this is the point where it starts to feel kind of real for me. There's something about that little HarperTeen graphic at the bottom of the page that makes me go, "Oh for SERIOUS? This is like actually happening and not just being imagined in my brain?"

For those of you who may not know, first pass pages are actually like the LAST time you have a chance to make changes to your book. I know, confusing name, but this is IT, guys. I am one read away from my book being done.

Dude.

  13. What an exciting moment! I totally know how you're feeling - seeing your name and words all put together and laid out like a real book, with the publisher's name on it, is a little surreal. And the funny thing is, even though this is the last time you can change anything... it's still a really long wait till you hold the printed copy in your hands. Going through the pages is a lot of work, but make sure you savour the moment! Congrats!
