Biography Progress Report #15: Moving Right Along
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 86
On Monday, I made first contact with the Marketing Department over at the University Press of Kentucky. They sent for approval the text they wrote for their Fall Catalog along with the summary for the book jacket, which included a great pull quote from a Hollywood biographer who I greatly admire.
Receiving the text gave me a jolt and really brought it home that this book I have labored over for more years than I care to think about, is now out of my hands will be out in the world very soon. It’s exciting, and also bizarre, to see my manuscript being described and interpreted by someone else, but is also proof positive that there is no turning back. What I have written will be the permanent record of Ann Dvorak, (unless it actually sells enough to warrant a revised edition down the line, but I don’t think I’ll count on that).
Fingers crossed that next Biography Progress Report will be a book cover!
