Open the champagne! Pop the cork and save it. I want to scream to the world, "I'm Published!" Yes, I finally took the plunge and self-published two of my short stories on Amazon. For this week these two short stories will be free, so please download read and share with others. Since May is the Genre-ista's Blog-O-Versary and we're all about celebrating this month I thought I'd share a little of the giddiness every author feels when they see their covers on a website or in a bookstore.
The day I published my first short story butterflies attacked my stomach. I couldn't sit for more than a few minutes and I had to email my husband I had done it. When my kids came home I had to tell them. When my kids went to school the next day they had to brag that their mom was published. Catching? Oh yeah. And next month I'll be self-publishing my first novel length book.
Key of Time will be book one of my Phoenix Warriors series set in 1880 ranging from London to Egypt with inventions and mythic beings and abilities and most important of all, Love.
What do you celebrate in your life? Is there a project close to your heart that gives you the giddy stomach butterflies?
