I feel better now. :o)
Indulge, Book 2 in my Warm Delicacy series is now available!
Okay, another deep breath needed! :-O
Releasing the second book in a series proved to be much more emotional and scary for me. I found myself worrying if people would like where I was leading the story, and praying that they would enjoy the world I created. In the end, all I could do was cross my fingers, write the best darn story I could, and hold my breath. Again.
Not all of this roller coaster ride has been bad. Throughout this year I've spoken with many indies and even made a few friends. I'd like to take some time to thank those friends, whose kind words have smoothed out bumps in my day and put a smile on my face when there would have otherwise been a frown.
To my amazing friend & designer Naj. You are a bright ray of sunshine and I am grateful everyday that we are friends.
To my indies Tiffany King, Megg Jensen, and Angela Carlie. Tiffany your friendship brings joy to my day, especially those writing moments where I want to break my pencil in half. You are really funny and I look forward to growing our friendship in 2012. To Megg and Angela. Thank you for your guidance throughout this year, especially when writing Savor. I deeply admire your incredible writing skills, but also your kind, open hearts. I've met some not-so-nice indies in my short time of self-pubbing, but you two are definitely not one of them.
Last, but not least, to my reviewers. You are the glue that keeps this cookie from crumbling. Seriously. I'd like to give a special shout-out to all you Indulge reviewers. It means so much to me that you stuck by me and were excited to join in on Indulge's Review Slam. I truly don't think I'd want to continue being an indie if I didn't have such amazingly kind people like you all around me.
And now, the moment I know you've all been waiting for...
I will be giving away 5 signed copies of Indulge during the rest of the month of December! All you have to do is either comment on this blog post leaving your name and email or mention it on Twitter. (Just made sure you tag me so that I can see it)
Sounds easy enough right?
Even though I'm terribly nervous, I can't wait to see what everyone thinks of Indulge and I am super excited to be giving away some signed copies, so good luck everyone!
