Biography Progress Report #25: Out Into the World
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 208
A few months back, the marketing department at the University Press of Kentucky had me fill out a lengthy questionnaire which included providing names of appropriate people who would be willing to provide quotes about the Ann Dvorak book for the back cover and publicity purposes. I was informed by two of those people yesterday that UPK contacted them and sent along a copy of the manuscript.
At this point, Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel has only been read by a handful of people, three of who are close friends. Even though the two authors who were contacted yesterday are also friends, it’s still nerve wracking knowing that this book I have been working on for an inordinate amount of time is making it’s way out into the world. I finished re-reading it yesterday, and am going to give it a second go, just to make sure I caught all the errors. There are a few things I wish I could go back and do different, but we’re past the point of no return and it’s full steam ahead. Overall, I think it turned out quite well and the time has finally come to find out if others agree.
