Rabbit, headlights, dazzled

I can't believe it's September, but then I can’t believe a lot of things right about now. Yesterday, I heard from my publicist at Penguin that copies of DOUBLE DARE have arrived in her office. I wasn’t expecting it to be this soon, and the news affected me really oddly. I felt like singing and dancing and bursting out crying all at once. LOL All day long, I was stunned, trying to picture all those copies of my book… ready to be shipped all over the world. Many of my pals who stop by here have several or even twenty or even sixty novels out, and they’re probably smiling at me knowingly – either that or laughing loudly at my naivety. Oh, it's just been such a long climb, keeping going towards my dream at some very difficult times in my life, I really never thought I'd see the day. TBH, up until yesterday, it never seemed real, but knowing someone had it in their hand...

I’m actually finding it hard to reengage with my current WiP, with all the stuff going on re the DOUBLE DARE publication. (So much mail!) It's happening, but slower than I need it to, so I’m hoping I snap out of it very soon. Authors deal with this all the time, and I’ve got to get used to it, can’t afford to wallow in being dazed LOL but it’s the first time, so..

Congrats, Saskia. I never really had that high off my first book. A paperback just couldn't compare with the new baby I was holding. :-) Enjoy it, you deserve it.
