Going through the process

Well as you may know by now, I've completed part one of my first book and its sequel, making it into a two part novel. My boyfriend, who is also my editor, will now have to go through the process of getting it published, which means writing a book proposal, printing out a manuscript, writing a synopsis, and surfing the net for possible publishers and so on... well as you can see our work isn't over just yet. There is still so much to do and prepare for before we will be able to get my book in print. I have to decide on paperback or hardcover, and the book cover layout, which we have already tried to create. I'll be letting my boyfriend take care of all the business stuff on this and just focus on my next writing project. As a first time novelist with without the education that many other authors have to depend on, I know we will have to try twice as hard to get a publisher to consider our material. My boyfriend knows a lot about self publishing because he has helped another author through the process. Most likely that is the route that we will take. But, he doesn't have a lot of free time so, it looks like it could be another long wait before my first book gets published. Sounds a lot like sometime this winter to me. Well, that's about it in a nut shell.
