It's Really Real

I don't get around to the old blog often. In fact, I've been locked out of it for a while because I couldn't remember the password (same with my old twitter account). I finally broke down and reset both passwords. I mostly connect through Facebook and Twitter these days due to time constraints. My Facebook is linked on my sidebar here and the Twitter handle where I usually hang is @TLWatts2.

I wanted to drop by with some exciting (to me!) news. A while back I talked a little bit about possibly self-publishing a novella I'd written. I finally have it all edited and decided I'll be going for it. It'll be a while--lots of stuff to conquer before it happens (fear, first and foremost!). I'm shooting for January 1st. Which is exciting in itself.

The big deal for me right now, though, is that I have a cover for it. A pretty, sexy, shiny cover--for something I wrote. It's crazy. That makes it very real, and surreal, and nerve wracking. All at once.

The cover designer did an amazing job! I'll be sharing at some point. December maybe? I'm still figuring out how things work. Which is why I've been stalking hanging around Susan Kaye Quinn's unbelievably fabulous blog and memorizing every word she writes. If you are thinking of self-publishing I can't say enough good things about her advice. Not to mention the amount of time she puts into selflessly sharing her wisdom.

Just wanted to drop in and say hi and share the news. I have a few more things to share about writerly friends and their new releases, but they deserve their own space so I'll get to them in future posts.

xoxo

I remember that fabulous, amazing feeling of seeing the cover all bright and shiny new! And the good news is that it's that way with *every* cover. You'll see, Tara, you'll see. ;-)
