It’s been an amazing experience, getting my book out into the world.
Most of the work of writing goes on quietly within the author’s own head. If a writer is fortunate, and I’m very fortunate in this regard, there is a critique group to help with encouragement and constructive criticism during the process. But there’s nothing like the knowledge that your book is being read by complete strangers. Someone bought it off a shelf, or off of Amazon, or picked it up at the library and now your story is unfolding in their minds.
It’s a wonderful feeling, though more than a little intimidating. I truly appreciate the feedback I’m receiving from readers.
And I can’t wait to do it all over again with the second book in the series.
