It's really here
When you work on something like a novel for a really long time, and it's deeply a part of your life, letting it go, and putting it in front of people is scary. Maybe they'll hate it. Maybe no one will buy it. Those are distinct possibilities, of course.
Right now, I'm just trying to enjoy having the book out there. I still have to work on promotion, which is the hardest part for any writer. It may be that, in order to get people to read it, I have to do the unthinkable: make it free.
