If you would have told me this time last year that in a mere 372 days I would be mother to two published books, I probably would have laughed. Or cried. Or a combination of the two because at this time last year I was a little over half way through Tag Chaser and feeling like I would never actually finish. But nonetheless, here we are – and Song Chaser is only 7 days away.
As an author, you have moments. All kinds of moments. You have times when you want to rip your hair out because a scene isn’t flowing right. You have times when you want to highlight every word in a 50,000 word manuscript and type backspace because obviously you are a disgrace to authors everywhere. You have moments where you want to cry because a two or three-star review humbled your ass and made you realize you still have a long way to go.
But, then there are moments like tonight, when you sit and smile because you feel proud of your accomplishment and you can’t wait for others to read what you created.
I have ideas for what comes next. Will there be another book in The Chaser Series? Most likely, yes. Will there be other books before that? Yes. My next book will not be related to TCS but I have high expectations for myself with this one and I can’t wait to get started. But, for now, I’m enjoying this last little part of the roller coaster ride that is Song Chaser. This book has put me through hell and back both emotionally and mentally and I’m both excited and scared as hell for it to hit Kindles next week.
7 days. In fact, less than that given how late it is. Someone pinch me, because surely this isn’t my life.
