Last Thursday I launched my first novel, Shrilugh.
Thank you, sweet readers, for the love.
Some of you told me I deserved a spot on your ‘short list’ of must-read authors. Some of you stayed up all night reading my book. Some of you gave me 4 and 5 star ratings. Some of you reviewed my book and compared me to authors that anybody would be flattered to be compared to.
Some of you Tweeted your tweeters off for me. Some of you put my cover art on your FB banners. Some of you sent me notes to tell me how happy you were for my accomplishment. Some of you told your friends and family about Shrilugh, and some of them went right out and bought it.
Big love. That’s what I felt on Thursday, and every day since. Big love.
I want to tell you that you guys eased my fears – long-held, deep-rooted fears of instant rejection. I want to tell you that I never expected launching a book to be so much fun or so rewarding. I want to tell you that had you not been so generous in your kind words and big love, last week would have looked so very different.
Thank you so much, sweet friends.
