So, I’m sitting here, right, and I’m listening to the Counting Crows. If you don’t know about my love affair with the Counting Crows, then I’m taking this moment to clue you in on that right now. I love them. Their music is the comfort of an old friendship that never fades, no matter how much time passes. Adam Duritz (lead singer) is one of my greatest writing influences – has been since I was a wee lass – and he is one of the reasons I chose August 1st as my release date (it’s coincidentally his birthday as well).
Anyway, all sentiments aside, I’m sitting here, filling out form after form, sending away email after email, working my little nubby fingers to the bone…
HOLLY FREAKIN’ HUGHES has been available for pre-order for a week, I’ve received a good handful of orders so far, I have a blog tour happening, there’s a July 27th takeover being handled, reviews are starting to come in, and all I keep thinking is, is this really happening? Do I really have a book coming out in a few weeks? Can I really consider myself a professional author?
Yes, yes, and yes.
Don’t pinch me. I don’t want to wake up.
