TO BE SEDUCED is scheduled to be released today! So how am I celebrating? DH is taking me out to dinner and mentioned a chilled bottle of champagne to enjoy afterward. My oldest posted a message of love and support on my Facebook wall and I have no doubt my youngest will acknowledge the day when she gets home from school, as she understands the importance of celebrating life’s milestones better than anyone else I know. Truly, God has blessed me with wonderful family and friends.
But till tonight? Well….I’m writing. First this post, and then at least a page of my WIP before I visit area bookstores. I’m not what one of my mentors calls a ‘gotta-be’ writer yet, but it’s safe to say I am officially past the ‘wanna-be’ stage. I am a writer. I was a writer before I was an author, and I will be a writer if I never sell another book. (Although I do want to sell more books! Judging from the voices in my head, lots more!)
I had no way of knowing when I entered a contest that it would lead to this day. I am humbled by the support and kindness of others, not just those around me, but those who I know only through the internet and over the phone. I am humbled by the opportunity given to me, and hope I can live up to it.
