Okay, so here it is. Dragos: Burned is live. I’m nervously fidgeting, wondering if people will buy it. Will people read it? Will they like it?
What if everyone thinks I suck?
See, us neurotic writers are truly beyond help. The thing we dream of most also scares us deeply.
I love my story (obviously). Not to say I couldn’t find plenty of things to still edit. Luckily, I’ve heard this is a common mentality.
But, especially this being my first, I can’t help but worry over my fledgling child out there in the world all alone. And I can’t help but worry that no one will enjoy it.
Like I said, call me neurotic.
So, if any of you do read my story, and you do like it — I would really enjoy hearing from you 🙂
2 days. Oh my gosh. 2 days.
Dragos: Burned will be released upon the world.
My ego doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Maybe it’ll just be hysterical.
Not only do I have my beautiful cover, but this Friday, I also have my very first book coming out.
Okay, I’m back and slightly calmer.
But it almost seems unbelievable. It doesn’t matter this has taken years to achieve. It still feels like it happened overnight. Just a few months ago I received my first contract. Last week, I got the most gorgeous cover.
And now, in just a few days, my baby will be out there in the world for all to see.
I posted yesterday at Plot Mamas about the ups and downs of life.
There’s a country song, can’t think of the name this second due to sleep deprivation, but there’s a line that goes “Sometimes you’re the windsheild, sometimes you’re the bug.”
I love that song. It’s just so apt, and can be used for any aspect of life.
From plotting, to writing, to editing, to submitting, to rejections, to…
Well, to finally getting that very first offer.
You heard me right, folks.
Someone out there is crazy enough to actually pay me for my writing. They’re going to publish me.
Yeah, it’s still feeling a little dreamlike.
And yeah, I’m still pinching myself every once in a while.
Give me a few days, and I’ll lay it all out. My experience up till now.
But, for now,
Coming Soon! Burned, an erotic paranormal romance, by Amber Kallyn
