The more things change

I have to admit that over the last month, walking into a bookstore or library has been different.  I've always felt at home in those places, like a warmly welcomed guest, but now there's a different sense of belonging. Others have read my book, people who take books from manuscript to a tangible item.  Now I feel like I'm part of those shelves.

Mandy Hubbard told me that when I get my ARCs someday I will put them up on the shelf and stare at it.  I can only imagine how I'll feel then.

So keep writing, my friends, the payoff of having a finished manuscript is hard to describe.

And don't forget to enter my contest, which closes tonight!  Lots of good stuff: books, critiques, gift cards.


  1. What a cool feeling! I imagine walking into a bookstore is like keeping a secret now! :D

  2. You are an inspiration to me! You are the actual reason that I'm beginning to get serious about writing a book. Thank you for all your hard work and for writing about it on this here blog. : )
