My launch day.
IN A FIX has officially been published. It's out there. (See? I changed the sidebar from where you can "pre-order" it to where you can "buy" it. Whoa.)
*clears throat* I am a published author.
Hmm. Even typing that doesn't make it seem real. Here, maybe if I type it bigger:
I am a published author!
Nope, still doesn't feel real. I mean, it's a very strange feeling when something you've worked toward for years is finally a reality. I think part of me doesn't quite trust it. Like the realness of it is fragile, a bubble on the edge of bursting...
Or a balloon...
...in a room full of porcupines...
I'm half afraid it could still pop.
But, like with a bubble or a balloon, I'm going to enjoy it while it's here. :)
And then I'm going to get back to work on the next book. Because as much fun as all the getting published stuff is--and trust me, it is--I still like the writing part best of all.
Thank you all for sharing the journey with me.
