AHHHH!! You guys! WINTER WONDERS is officially available for preorder!
I'm all jittery with anticipation and nerves and I fear they will only get worse as the release date nears. I can only imagine how people who have full length novels that are about to be released feel because this is INSANE.
Not only is there a little voice in my head going 'oh god, oh god, oh god..." but I am 100% absolutely terrified that my story is going to be the worst one.
Logically, I know that I've gotten good feedback on it and that thrills me but there's still that little voice that won't shut up and is all self-doubty. The funny thing? I'm not at all scared for strangers to read my story, nope, it's the people I know (close friends and family) reading it that scares the bejesus out of me.
Is that normal?
Whether it is or not, I can only hope that it's only the beginning for me and that it allows me to grow even more as a writer. I've put my heart and soul into this story and while it may not seem like it based on this blog post, I HAVE come away from this experience just a little more confident in my abilities.
I honestly cannot wait for you all to read it and share your thoughts about it and I really hope you'll check the anthology out because there are a bunch of amazing writers involved and all the proceeds go to help fight illiteracy in America.
