Book Birthday: Milestone

Howdy, folks, The official launch date is June 10, 2014, but, happy news, my ebook PLUMB CRAZY has found its way onto the virtual shelves of booksellers worldwide.  I hope you consider giving it a look. Try here for a copy from Amazon US. Here is Amazon UK. Here is Amazon Australia  Try here for a copy for your B&N Nook .

Every once in a while an author's book makes it onto the shelves of some place. This is a big milestone in an author's life. It's a weird feeling in so many ways. Your inward self is really out there now. It's done. Keep breathing.  Cake is good.  Let the happy thoughts fill you, even though you feel sort of terrified.

Your book is going to do its own thing now. This feels a little like when your first child heads off to school. You must let them go and off they go. He or she was born to go. It's terrible and wonderful at the same time. This is part of the journey, you whisper to yourself.

Your book making is its way to readers. This is a little like when your child graduates high school and heads off on his or her own.  It feels like part of you is being cut off, and you will never heal. It feels like you have had the greatest privilege ever to nurture an amazing person to this point. This is part of the journey, you whisper to yourself.

I am glad, dear folk, that you are with me on this journey with me. I am glad you all have traveled with me this far.  It is a real gift.

Many dropped by the Swoon booth at BEA. I handed out doodles. Here's one that went to a lucky visitor.


Finally a quote for your pocket.  Suddenly the world is way less, Maya.

Hey Molly! Great things are happening in your corner of the world! I'm so happy for you. :) I'll be getting P.C. on my Kindle this week. I look forward to reading it. I knew you could do it!!!

As for me, a couple of betas have my Steely book. I'm terrified of what they'll say, but also thrilled because anything they say will help. I know this. It's needing so much at this point. My hope is that each of them will point out to me what it lacks, so I can finally get it together and get it out to the world. Fingers crossed. :)

Molly, I thought release date was June 6th so I go on Amazon and find it as an e-book. I couldn't resist ... You had to compete with Terminator 2. LOL. And today is Pentecost and we're cooking for a potluck and preparing for High Mass ...

But tomorrow is a whole another day! Happy Birthday Plumb!!!!! You're beautiful.

Thanks for supporting PLUMB Crazy, Candi! I know the terror that you are feeling about Steely. Readers are wonderful folk. I don't think you can write a good book without some extra eyes.

Enjoy Pentecost!

Plumb appreciates the Happy Birthday note!
