This Week Sucked Even Though I Fulfilled a Lifelong Dream
In less than a week's time, two defining moments have occurred in my world:
- My first novel is available for order through several retail sites.
- Our golden retriever passed away, two weeks shy of her ninth birthday.
I was already reeling from the emotional impact of launching my book. The effort that goes into pinpointing the direction to take with publication, as hard as that is, doesn't compare to the emotional toll of putting your creative work out there and hoping the story you love is enjoyable to others, too.
