Where to begin, where to begin...my debut comes out next month and I've leapt out of La-la land and plunged into reality fairly quickly. It's been busy with promotions, writing blog posts, making sure everything is ready for the launch that I haven't been able to celebrate yet. I mean, like, really celebrate. A movie, a dinner...something would be nice.
Sometimes, I feel as if I'm alone. There are no filters between me and what's out there--reviews, the changing world of publishing, and everything else I have to learn.
But then I come across wonderful people like my great critique partner, Anita, who I spoke with, like, on the phone spoke with, when I got that call. And folks like SA Larsen whose WS4U facebook page and blog inspires. And, of course, groups like Insecure Writer's Support Group and the Idelibles (links above).
I realize that I'm not alone. And that's good to know.
My debut THE SECOND SIGN will be released February 7, 2013. I run a household full of kids and a man-kid. I can't cook to save my life. What does salt to taste mean anyway? I love to dance with my four-year-old though I did pull something last time I danced with her. Okay...'nuff said.
