Granted, in addition to my noted relief, I did feel a real desire to hide under the bed for about a month until the nervous excitement wore off. 😀
Every author’s dream is to be published. To have that book they’ve spent months or years on finally in print or in eBook form, ready to be purchased by eager readers. That is the moment that every author anticipates or dreads. Will it be a hit? Will it be a flop? What will the reviews say? It can be a moment filled with mixed emotions.
Question 41: What was it like when you published your first story? If you haven’t published yet, what do you imagine it will be like?
Publishing my first book was harrowing. It taught me things, though, and continues to teach me all the time, even after publishing my second book. I will say that it’s incredibly exciting and rewarding as an independent author, especially.
I haven’t yet, but I imagine that I will be both excited and nervous.
