Everything’s coming up Nicole

At least, when it comes to all of the work involved with this here soon to be published book thing.

I have seen the first draft of the cover art.  I have a bio on Dreamspinner’s page.  I have galley proofs, and I’m so in love with them. I want to sing to them, I was to sit down and coo and make those stupid faces people do when they encounter a baby or a puppy or something.

I’m in love.  I’m proud.

I’m terrified.

I worry I will be the only person in the whole wide world who will love my baby as much as I do.  I worry about plotpoints and dialogue and name choices and tropes that will cause readers to run screaming from ever trying a work with my name on it again.

I worry about the sequel.  I worry it will never be as good as this story.  I worry because the plot bends and twist and refuses to sit still and stop changing already, damnit.  I worry there will not be a sequel.

I am ready, I suppose.  No writer getting ready for a publishing run is without being in love and scared at the same time.  It’s watching your baby take it’s first steps.  It’s amazing.
