These are my favorite days, these days when a new project is released into the wild. It’s killing me to be at work-work and not home to savor every Tweet, FB comment, review, ranking, etc. My mind is simply blown at how many of you seemed to have been waiting for this story. Ten hours after release, and two reviews are already up. Thank you so much for this, everyone. The rush of endorphins I feel right now is more than sufficient to see me through another heavy bout of writing.
Also, I’m glad I didn’t wait until February 8th to release WOOL 5. Tomorrow is my last day at the bookstore, and let me tell you: it’s a nerve-wracking venture to leave a day job and pursue a career as a writer. What if the next thing stinks? What if the sales go away immediately? I have no guarantee that I won’t be back to square one by March.
So today was important for me. I feel good about this. Thanks again for all the support and kudos; they are the very things that will help me through my next project.*
*Which will probably suck, you’ll hate, will never sell, and I’ll be begging for my old job back.
