Kirkus Reviews asked me to contribute to their popular "How I Did It" column. My post published today, and you can find it here.
Yesterday, Easy was released into the wild.
On a day most of us in the US were focused on the Presidential elections, Paul and I took time out from the all-day election return coverage to have lunch and duck into a local Barnes & Noble to see if they had copies of my book out on the shelf. They did. (Also on the floor, under a table in the center aisle.)
Book on a shelf. Check. Now what?
Well, I'm about to disappear into my Cave. Email, Facebook and Twitter responses are going to slow down. Coffee consumption will increase. I may or may not be wearing the tiara my friend Tess gave me at lunch a couple of months ago (modeled below, along with her daughter, Claire... who looks enough like me that I might steal her at some point and get away with it).
If you purchased my book, whether in indie form or the new Penguin/Berkley edition, thank you so much for your support of my dream. I wish I had tiaras enough for everyone.
