Emerging from Chrysalis
Last night I clicked the “Publish” button on the Amazon Kindle version of Chrysalis. It’s pretty exciting. Also nerve-wracking. I come at this thing with a long-nurtured expectation that self-publishing was nearly always synonymous with vanity publishing. So I’m torn between worry that I’ll fail and fear that I’ll succeed. But, after many years, it is out there, and now I can move on to the next thing with a clear slate. Hopefully, the next novel will be finished not too long from now–the first draft, at least.
And now I’m going on a cruise and try to forget the whole deal for a week.
