Standing in the Middle of a Crowded Room, Naked
Carina Press has released Craving Perfect to NetGalley and I've given away a bunch of advanced review copies too. The reviews have started coming in for my baby.
And just like when Captive Spirit was released into the big, wide Universe, it still feels a lot like standing in the middle of a crowded room, naked. You wonder: Will people point and laugh? Will they say nice things? Will they make jokes behind their hands, whispering and chuckling?! And please, dear gawd, will they get my story?!! The anticipation alone of waiting for reviews makes your heart feel like it could beat its way through your ribcage and out of your chest.
So far, so good.
And so far, I'd like to give a shout-out to the following cool peeps for their support and kind words about Craving Perfect on Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, the blogosphere in general. In no particular order but with plenty of hugs and love, they are:
Next week the 30-day countdown for Craving Perfect begins. This book has been such a long time coming and I'm so ready to party. Like most books, there's a story behind the story and I'll share more in the weeks that follow. Some of it may surprise you but one thing is for certain: Getting this puppy published wasn't easy.
Thanks for another great week in the blogosphere. Have a wonderful weekend, all!
