When Shiloh was published


what did it feel like when you figured out that your book shiloh was published?

Phyllis Naylor:

I was really happy when the editor wrote back that he liked my story, and was going to publish it.  Once a manuscript is accepted, of course, then the editor and the author go over it again and again to change words or sentences here and there to be sure it is clear to the reader.  It takes about a year from the time a book is accepted until it appears in the bookstores.  It has to be read by the copy-editor, then it has to wait in line for the printer.  An illustrator must be chosen to work on the cover of the book….it takes a lot of people to turn a manuscript into a book.
