Wow. It's here at last. My book is out in the world. I still can't believe it. Even though there's been lots of chatter about it and I've seen pictures of it, I still can't believe it. It's been a long journey as this blog shows - ups and downs and everything in between.
Mike 'Everest' Evans tweeted this picture today. And there's my book next to R.F. Kuang's (author of one of my favourite's from last year) and, on the left, the special edition of Peter Brett's The Painted Man. Do you know how crazy that is for me to see that? The Painted Man got me back into fantasy. It made me want to write my own stories. I've queued up to get books signed by Peter in New York and London. He's the man.
And then this was tweeted:
Just thinking Peter might read 'my' book was incredible. God knows what I'll be like if he actually does read it.
Sometimes I think I shouldn't fanboy now that I'm a published author (and yeah, I am a Published Author!) but I can't change. I'll always be a fan first and foremost.
But wow, what a day.
