My Release Date is *Finally* Here!

I've been waiting a long time to finally say this - I am now officially a published author. I keep pinching myself to make sure that I'm awake. That it's really my name on top of that gorgeous book cover, and really my words on the pages. And it is. It really is.

No one told me how nervous I would feel about my release date. I mean, this is something I've been eagerly anticipating... and now my stomach is doing nonstop backflips. My friend Nickey compared it to giving birth, but maybe it's more like sending a child off to college for the first time, sending my new baby out into the world to fare for itself.

As this is my first book, I'm not really sure what to expect or what I "should" be doing to get the word out to friends and readers. My Facebook friends are all well-aware that my ebook is out there, but what of all those other people I know? And all those readers I've yet to connect with? If you have any wonderful promotion ideas, let me know!

In the mean time, I guess I need to get on with normal life as best I can - although one aspect of my life is now changed forever. I've entered the realm of published author.
