Now I suppose I have to go out and find some way to market this thing, eh? Not to mention finishing another book–which is so close I can taste it. And it tastes a lot like stale cigarettes, so I’d like to be done with it already.
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.[Top]
