I received the book Proof (Hardback and Paperback). When I opened the box, delivered by UPS, and peered inside seeing my book for the first time it hit me that I am an author. I reviewed both copies and made sure all was correct. What a great job the design team did! I sent the design team the approval for the printing of the book and they uploaded the required files.
It still took work on my part to complete the required forms on Amazon (Kindle), CreateSpace (Paperback) and IngramSpark (Hardcover and e-Book). Once the online forms were completed and files uploaded the book appeared on the online vendor site. It is now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for sale.
