Already beginning…

21 Dec
Work has already begun to ready for the release. And two of those things are to discover a cover and find another title. The second one makes me laugh because I have re-titled Virginia Kate so many times! I am over-thinking it I know. Bellebooks will help me with both of these things, but of course, I need to be involved, et cetera!
They’ve put a notice in Publisher’s Weekly – it made it very real to see that. Gawd. Stomach flutters.
So, I’m doing my homework and feeling as if I’m in a dream.
My friends, what a Christmas gift!
I feel as if you all have been along with me on this journey and it feels good – so I don’t feel as if I am somehow floating in space, because the weight of those who are cheering me on hold me to the ground, but in that nice way – my feet barely touching the ground. Nice. *smiling*
So, back to looking at titles, to thinking about blurbs, about future reviewers, about covers, about things I have never experienced. Oh! And I think how I’ve been on the other side of it – the reviewer, the editor, the blurb-writer.
Christmas, just days away. There’s a fire in the fireplace as the chill has returned. The birds have emptied the feeder I filled this morning, so I will re-fill it. The creek is rushing madly madly – the recent rains another gift.
This is a humbling feeling. I mean, will I be loved? Will my book be received well? Will my Virginia Kate steal your hearts?
I will be back with my green tips, and my healthy living tips, and my writer/editor tips, too. And, some Clemmie/Clementine when I can. But, I also want to get to work on the next in my Virginia Kate Trilogy! Good Lawd – writers have to always look ahead don’t they? Still, I’m going to enjoy all the moments.
Thank you for your comments – they make me smile and I feel as if I’m in the huge group hug.
Okay, more later as I experience it.
