She helped me pry my fingers off my closely-held WIP and held it up to the light for all to see.
For me, and probably most writers, that’s a big step. After eating, drinking, and sleeping with the characters for many, many moons, the act of talking about the novel in public and acknowledging its upcoming release, makes it all so very real. Knowing that months of hard work will soon draw to an end is, quite frankly, a little scary. It is probably similar to watching our children leave home for the first time. We push them out of the nest, hoping we’ve given them enough love and nurturing to fly on their own. We’ll still be there for them, cheering them on, but ultimately we have to let them go and move on.
Sadness and elation – two emotions that are creeping up on me as I write this. But, it’s part of the writer’s life, a life I fully embrace.
Today, Bridgette has once again generously opened the door to her blog, this time to ask a few questions about me, my writing, and my upcoming novel, Souled. Are you ready for some answers? Then please join me over at Bridgette Booth’s digs for a little conversation.
In the upcoming weeks, be sure to come back, because I’ll be posting excerpts from the novel, interesting information on soul attachments, the making of the book cover (a huge thank you to Crystalyn Abercrombie, artist and tattoo expert!), and other fun stuff!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
