My editor sent me two copies of WAYFINDER ahead of the rest of the author copies coming my way.
Reader, I confess it: I got emotional.
This is a rare moment–the only moment, in fact, since I began publishing–where the books on my shelf represent everything I’ve finished a contract for. Usually when I get a new book and put it on the shelf my immediate reaction is “Yay! Now I want the next one!” But in this case, the next book is under a different contract, so right now my Author Shelf is caught up. 16 full-length novels, 1 novella with cover credit & a 5-issue comic book. Plus some short stories and things, all of which add up to somewhere around 1.8 million words published in the past six years.
Damn straight, I got emotional!
There’s more coming down the line. There’s *always* more coming down the line, and that’s how I like it, but right now? Here, today? Today I’m going to bask in the sheer awesome that is me.(x-posted from the essential kit)
