Enjoying the Moment

I have been very busy lately getting ready for my latest novel, TO BE QUEEN, to be released. Tomorrow is the day, and I am taking a moment to be grateful.

All of you writers know how hard it is to get words on paper…and then the process of finding an agent and making a novel shine while working with an editor are paths that contain their own difficulties and rewards. But then the day finally comes when the book will hit the shelves.

I have finally reached that day with TO BE QUEEN, and I am going to savor it.

This, too, is the writing life, seeing your book reach the readers it is intended for. I am grateful for every single person who has read and who will ever read my books. That is where we are all trying to go…we are all hoping to get our stories into the hands of the readers who will love them,  readers who may even love our characters the way we love them. Tomorrow is the day that begins to happen for the latest installment of my Eleanor saga.

It is one of the most profound joys of my life. Thank you to everyone who will be part of that, all the bloggers and reviewers who work so hard to spread the word, to all my friends on Facebook, and to every person who will pick up TO BE QUEEN and begin to read.
