I've officially sold books this week, and some words come to mind:
Awe. Incredulous. Surreal.
Yes, I know- it's supposed to happen like that.
But when I just sit here and remember the chronology of this work, and the reality of actually sending this out there- I'm in a bit of shock. This whole event has been an odd bouncing between a Big Deal and It's Just What I Wrote, and I realize that it's not over; it's actually just beginning.
There haven't been any reviews yet (which will be the next traumatizing event, I'm sure!), but I know that there are copies of my book heading out into the world.
And that's amazing.
