DAY 3: Here's a sage piece of advice for anyone self publishing a novel: don't try and publish 13 at the same time. Advising, editing, and organizing 12 student novels, complete with interior illustrations, author bios and pics, cover art and back-of-the-book summaries has been nerve-wracking, but incredibly satisfying. You should see the faces of these kids when they see professionally-designed covers on their own stories! I think they recognize the value of their own accomplishment even more when they're holding a published book in their hands. It's all coming together . . . we should have most, if not all, of our 13 novels by June 14!
