I have my first book review on! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to link to it from here, so just to be on the safe (and slightly paranoid) side, I won't.

There was much squeeing when I found out. The cats may never speak to me again, nor will the rest of my family. I will say it was one of those moments that I will never forget. While I do know the author, I also know she's not the type to just post flattering things to make me feel good. If she didn't like it, she wouldn't have posted anything at all.

This? This is what makes all those long hours of editing worth the tears and backache.

Now for the Hard Part

The book is now available in all formats (although it's e-pub status is still not showing up on any site other than, but that's ok, for now). Right now, my current problem is promoting it. Seriously, it's harder to do that I thought. Last night, we went to a family gathering and I found myself stumbling over my words when asked about the book.

"What's it about?"
Uh... well... it's about these people with special abilities that are running from, uh, say, is that an olive? I missed those on the buffet, I think I'll go get a couple.

It's very difficult to discuss the book without giving away any little secrets, not that the group I was with would be interested in that particular genre, but I'm rather protective of those twists and turns in the plot, so just giving them away makes my hair stand on end.

But I still need to talk about it, promote it, encourage them to step out of their regular reading space and take a peek at what I've written. After all, they are family, so it's not like they've never asked me to do something similar.

Piano recitals, anyone?

It's An E-Book!

I got word today that the e-pub is finally up and running. You can download it from the site. I don't know when it will be available elsewhere, but they promise me you can get it on your i-pod thingy, your Kobe, Kindle, Nook, computer, whatever.

Now I can relax and work on the next book... and start this crazy ride all over again!
