Post Release Relief!

The nervous stomach is starting to settle. My first book seems to have pass first muster. I've had many great comments about Thirty Days already. I'm so excited! The sweetest was at Liquid Silver's blog, Silver Expression. The woman actually made me cry!

Check out her comment here:

So many others have emailed or posted on boards I frequent. I'm thrilled at the response.

Of course, now the nervous stomach starts for my February release, The Cost of Eternity at Ellora's Cave. Will it live up to expectations?

*cackle* Yes, writers do tend to be a little insecure. But the voices won't let me stop writing so I guess I'll just buy stock in antacids...

Thirty Days has a release date!

I woke up this morning to an email from Liquid Silver Books. They are releasing Thirty Days on December 18th. It had been tentatively scheduled for January. Did you know it is really hard to type while you are floating on air?

I can't stop grinning! My dogs keep looking at me funny with all the cackling noises I'm making. This is my first book ever published. I'm having trouble believing it's real!
