The ARCS Are Out.
So … I’m official, I guess.
Anyone who’s been reading my blog with any regularity over the last three years knows I’ve been working on my novel, TIED for quite a while. They know I went on submission about a year ago with a mixture of fear and anxiety. Somehow I made it through with a publishing contract.
Fast forward another year later, and I’m holding the print copy of TIED in my hands.
The official ARCS went out to bloggers and reviewers on Monday. The email from my publisher came over that morning, and I kind of ignored it. *continues writing TORN ignoring that TIED just released to over 200 people who are going to pick it a part.*
Wednesday night, UPS delivered the print copy (the ARC), and I just kind of stared at it while everyone else jumped around, giving me high fives, and ooh’s and aah’s.
I haven’t started the edits yet. I’m still staring at the book.
I guess I’m really doing this. Where’d the last three years go?
