I can’t describe how exciting it was to get my box of ARC’s in the mail. I was running around like crazy going “Look!! It’s a REAL BOOK! Like REAL AUTHORS WRITE!”
If I publish a million books, and win a zillion awards, I don’t think I will ever, ever get over the feeling of awe when something I have written looks like a REAL BOOK.
I kept carrying it around and caressing it and posting pictures of it, like it was a newborn baby.
Holy crap, I’m an author. This is so boss.
