It's here...no, really here.





















So this time dealing with CreateSpace I had a bit of a cover issue. It happened at the same time my cover artist went out of town for a month. So what is an author to do? Well in my case, roll up your sleeves and get it fixed. So after some trial and error and few back and forth emails I got it fixed.

Today I opened my door to find the box sitting there waiting for me. With glee I ripped open the package and there it was, ASHES. It is my second book, but still I feel like someone needs to wake me up. There is something magical about having an idea, working it into so many words and then having a physical thing appear on your doorstep.

Well now it is fully here, and both book types are available on Amazon. I feel like I can truly breathe now. I will probably stop staring at it and carrying it around with me at some point—but not quite yet.

This month has been pretty awesome so far, and in a few days I get to share some awesome people's work, be sure to come back Sunday for the first of those. Then Wednesday for the next. I can't wait.

Anyway, have you had the chance to hold your book in your hands? As always have fun and keep writing.

  3. The feeling is *almost* as good as holding your babies (the human ones) for the first time.
    Not quite the same but almost :P Enjoy the feeling!

  4. Very cool. I haven't written a book, but when I was a reporter I got a kick out of seeing my byline.

    Love,

    1. That is cool. I think it is the same no matter what we create.
