So, here I am, a bona-fide published author-(albeit an ebook author which apparently for a lot of the population doesn’t count)-am I different? Has fame affected me?
Not really. I still had to clean the house, do washing, remember a million appointments for the kids and feed everyone. I have to admit, I spent most of Wednesday feeling a bit sick. the thought that complete strangers might be reading my book freaked me out. What if they hated it and demanded their money back from Ellora’s Cave? What is no one bought it at all except the lovely people I know?
The weird thing is I can’t do anything about that. It’s totally out of my control. All I can do is put my head down and keep writing the next one.
It also feels strange to have achieved a dream. The older you get the harder it becomes to believe in yourself. I am proud to have done this.
Of course, now I want more-I want to be the next Nora Roberts….
I’ll be off to England on Thanksgiving (I wonder if they’ll give me turkey on the plane?) to visit my family. I hope everyone has a great holiday!
Holiday Fun below!
