Until this week. This Wednesday. Because this Wednesday doesn't bring me just one day closer to the weekend. It brings me one day closer to Friday. Friday. The day that I am publishing my first novel, The Talented.
And I'm both excited and terrified.
I don't know why it struck me today. I decided last week that it was finally time to get my book out on those virtual bookshelves. That waiting until the paperback was ready for sale as well was just an excuse, and that this Friday was as good a day as any to finally put The Talented on the market.
It's been written, proofed, gone over by professionals, and edited again. It's had its cover designed and been as well formatted as I can make it. If The Talented isn't ready for release now, it never will be.
So it's time.
In two days, my book will be up for sale. People all over the world (conceivably) will be able to download and read it. People will be able to leave reviews (good or bad) on Amazon. And The Talented will officially leave the realm of WIP.
And I will officially be self-published and ready to formally join the ranks of indie-authors.
It's exciting. And terrifying.
But I'm ready.
