Best week ever!

I just wanted to commemorate one of the best weeks I've ever had as a writer. Let me just list the things that went right:

  • I saw Laertes on a featured new paperback table at Barnes & Noble. That was the first time I've ever been featured like that. I danced and then I cried. Dignity, always dignity.

  • Into the Unreal is now available everywhere as an audiobook, including Audible. The acting in this book is even better than in Firian Rising.

  • Jake Ruddle, my narrator, finished reading Kingdoms on Fire to prep for the final installment and he absolutely loved it. I got a panicked email from him while I was still in the B&N saying he would scream if I hurt his favorite characters.

  • I finished my next project (TBA--join the newsletter if you want first dibs!) and proofs are headed to me now.

  • A different B&N out of town reached out and asked if I wanted to do a signing.

  • I got a 5/5 review on Goodreads from someone saying that Laertes was one of her most anticipated books of 2022 and it didn't disappoint.

  • Someone posted a picture of Laertes in front of a pegboard that said "Simply to be is vastly beautiful", which is one of my favorite quotes from that book.

  • My family and my writing group got me celebratory food and drink to mark the occasion of a flipping amazing week of being an author.

I mean, does it get any better than that? Thanks, everyone, for making weeks like this possible! I'm speechless (except that I'm telling everyone I can--haha!) This has been a dream come true.
