Tomorrow, Little Pretty Things is released.
A year ago, on the day before my first book came out, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I wrote about it on The Debutante Ball, about how I was getting everything I’d ever wanted, but you can read it there—I wasn’t sure it would be everything I’d ever dreamed it would be.
Well, I’m here to answer that question. Did getting published change my life?
In a word: yes.
I mean, I still don’t floss as often as I should and I still have to pump my own gas once in a while, but the last year has been rather amazing. All the people I’ve met. All the friends I’ve made. The moments where I remember to pinch myself awake and look around at how I spend my time these days. All of life’s little problems don’t go away, but there is a certain satisfaction to having a book on the shelf. My book is on the shelf, and no matter what happens in the future, I had that moment.
Luckily for me, that moment has stretched out into moments I couldn’t have imagined, couldn’t have known to hope for.
And now we do it again. Little Pretty Things releases tomorrow. I have a second book on the shelf. I have THAT moment, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.
In preparation, spend a little time with the protagonist of Little Pretty Things, Juliet Townsend, at Dru’s Book Musings. And where do I get all this writing done, you ask? Check out my writing spot(s) on Shelf Pleasure!
