Why is this picture me? Well, because, this morning, I decided to dust off a NaNo project and ask a dear friend of mine if she could edit, reformat, make a cover for it. It’s a gothic novel with a detective twist. It took me this long to finally decide to do it because I was always fearful that it wasn’t finished and that I needed to add to it. Well, this morning I threw caution to the wind and decided to let it ride. Yep, me, let it ride. The girl that has four unfinished fiction novels and two unfinished non-fiction books has decided to take the plunge and get a book published.
Now, I wait patiently for her to finish, and bite my fingernails. I can’t help it. Yes, I make jewelry and other crafts as well, but this is different. I am entering the word of the greats, like Chaucer, Dickens, and Tolkien. I am going to tread where Stephen dominates, and Bently Little has wonderful stories. Me, ME, publishing a book. Me, out there with Patricia Cornwell and Iris Johansen so, yeah, I am nervous.
I know I should relax, but it’s not possible. It’s just not possible, not for me, not right now. Hold on to your hats. I will all of you know when the publishing happens.
God Bless, and Much Love
