BURNING BRIGHT is out this Tuesday! Launch partay in da howse!!
It’s two days to go until Release Day (technically only one, since it’s so late on Sunday…). I have so many mixed feelings! I feel excited, a little scared, and don’t know what to expect. Excited because it’s our first book, scared that I won’t do ‘it’ right (not sure what ‘it’ is, but the worry is still there), and I don’t know what to expect for Tuesday. Will I feel different once the book is out and available?
It feels strange to have a book published. It doesn’t feel like something is done, and over; it feels like the work has only just begun. We are hard at work finishing the sequel, as well as working on a couple other projects and researching publishers for them. We’ve learned so much over the past year and a half and aren’t the same writers we were when we started. We are closer as friends, inside each others’ heads a lot more than we were even when writing BURNING BRIGHT. I’ve met some amazing folks in the business, launched a non-profit, and really think of myself as an author now instead of only a writer.
It’s been an amazing journey and we are now waiting to watch our little baby make its first steps into the world. Cigar and champagne, anyone?
