So close!

On the Eve of the release of my first book I can honestly say I am overwhelmed with a lot of different emotions. This has been a "someday" dream for so long that now it is almost here it is surreal! I carry around my proof copy everywhere to remind myself this is really happening. Wow!

I have no idea what will follow with the launch of my book tomorrow, my dream was always to publish a book without much thought to what follows. I hope to find success, I hope that people will love it as much as I do, and I am excited to find out.

Though I am really nervous! I had a dream last night that I received bad reviews! Doubt is a nasty thing and always tries to get in the way. I do not expect all the reviews to be positive. Everyone will have their own opinion and I respect that. I know I will not be able to please everyone. So am prepared for good and bad. I cannot help but feel vulnerable because I am putting a big piece of myself out into the world!

I keep telling myself there has to be a reason why I have wanted this so much and why now all the pieces are finally coming together. I know I have surprised a lot of people when I started this blog because I have always been private and did not even have a presence on social media until this year when I started this process. I came to a place when I realized I need this, I wanted to make it happen, and so here I am!

Hi, Aimee. Beautiful blog. I just bought your book. I'm not sure how fast I'll get to it because I'm trying to get two of my own out, but it sounds interesting. I don't typically read fantasy, so we'll see how it goes.
