I'm in Berkeley tonight, spending the night with my fab friend Lauren so we can be ridiculously productive and torture me with running on super-steep hills in the morning. It's a lovely thing that I have friends who make the mundane and sometimes painful parts of achieving goals more enjoyable. Though I don't know that I believe in a god, I acknowledge that I am blessed.
And, not to bury the lede, but... I have some ridiculously exciting news. I mean, this is epic. Well for me, that is. My novel, Chasing the Wind, is currently in the last stages of beta-reading! I'll be rounding up the notes from my awesome reviewers, making a few revisions, and then sending it off to be edited SOOOOOON! And that means that if everything falls right into place I could have a published novel by the end of 2016! Eeep!
And... one of the more cool parts of the publishing process? I have a cover!!!! This is the REAL DEAL y'all. Today a cover, tomorrow a Goodreads page and an Amazon page (well, not TOMORROW, but soon...) Wow. I am starting to get all the nerves, ya know?
So now I just need to verify the timing and that I have everything together, and then I'll share Chasing the Wind's cover with you. Yay! Make sure you sign up for email updates so that you get a first look when I reveal the cover. I'm sussing out dates right now. You don't wanna miss it! Also, if you wanna help me broadcast the cover reveal to the world, I'll have a sign-up list for that really soon, too!
I'm so glad you're on this journey with me, friends.
