Whether you publish traditionally or self-publish, the day the proof arrives is a day to celebrate ? Here my husband, Barry Dimick, is holding the package containing his soon-to-be published book. When I say soon-to-be published, the soon is relative. Barry hopes his book will be available at Phoenix Book Stores in Vermont and on Amazon by October 1.

Publishing is no fly-by-night endeavor. It takes time and patience, but as you can see by the smile on Barry’s face, it’s worth the effort ?
