I’m so excited! Yesterday I sent the book to the printer. That’s a big deal. Like a really big deal. Like I thought that the day would never come because I’ve been working on this forever and printing didn’t seem like it would ever be a reality. Now, my stomach is doing flip flops. It’s about to be set in pulp. I can’t make changes unless I print again… Did I do it all right? Did I get it perfect? It’s kind of a surreal feeling — I wanted this day to come so badly, and now that it’s here, it’s like I’m going crazy wondering if I should have looked at it one more time before I sent it… It’s ridiculous. I guess I can’t sit on it forever. It’s time to move forward with it, and right now, there’s no turning back. It’s going to be printed. And unless I want to hoard the boxes in my nonexistent garage, I will eventually have to let people read it. I hope it’s good enough. Somewhere deep down, I know it is, but there’s always that nauseating feeling of second guessing oneself (which is a bad habit I need to stop. Now.)
So the good news for you kind folks is that I’ll have something tangible (FINALLY) for you to get your hands on in the very near future! Just a matter of weeks, really.
So a big thank you to everyone for your kindness, your time, your patience, your support, your pushing, your asking when it will be done… because it really did help. I appreciate you. And, very soon, I’ll let you know how you can get a copy of the book! I’m super excited!! I’m pacing the floor and wearing a rut in the carpet like an expectant author waiting for the book baby to be delivered! XD
