Today’s the day! Deepest Roots of the Heart has been released! I am so excited! After being certain I would never consider publishing traditionally, Waterfall Press changed my mind last April. Nine months later (the analogy of giving birth to a book just took on a whole new meaning), here we are! Waterfall Press has done an astounding job of producing a quality book that I am proud of. They went all out to ensure that I was completely comfortable and satisfied throughout the entire process, something I don’t know all publishers would be so conscientious about. From the repeated changes I wanted in the book (they got a completely unedited rough draft, poor souls), to the back copy that I rejected repeatedly, to the book cover (one thing I’m a little fanatical about), they kept working with me until I was thrilled. They even got the very audio narrator that I had found and really wanted for this book. Thom Rivera is FABULOUS! I truly feel spoiled by the entire Waterfall team. I’d like to take a moment now to thank Tammy for seeing value in my work and asking me to sign on. I’d also like to thank Dan, Ben, and Tammy for putting up with my hundreds of questions and random emails over the past few months. You’ve been more than gracious, and I appreciate it.
