ONCE BITTEN is now available!!

I have big news today (and if you read the title to this post, you probably already know what it is.)

My editor wrote me a couple days ago to let me know I'd probably see Once Bitten listed at online stores by the end of the week. I have been extremely nervous since then, and of course, checking the major sites a couple times a day. Well, this morning I discovered both Barnes & Noble and Amazon have Once Bitten up and listed for sale!

This news makes me both extremely happy and even more nervous. Now it's out there. People can read it. I can make a rough estimate of everyone who read it before today--it's a relatively small pool of people, and while I don't know all of them, I have some idea who they are. Now the book is out there and has to sink or swim on its own. I hope people love it, but I'm realistic enough know not everyone will.

Is there a word to describe feeling both terrified and ecstatic? I wonder if every book release will feel this way?

Okay. Time for me to stop blathering away and get back to editing my WIP.

So exciting!!!

I think the word you're looking for is terristatic! (or maybe it's just "eep!")

Is it available in stores yet, or only online?

My copy is sitting in my shopping cart, waiting for me to find another $10 so I can get that free shipping. ;-)

And no matter how many books you publish, nothing feels more exhilarating than to see yours sticking out on the shelf.

Thanks Janie! I think both those words work. Hehe ^_^

Hey Marcia! Thanks!! I hope you enjoy it.
Good to know about the thrill. I haven't actully seen it on the shelves yet. I'll probably scare the other customers when I do. LOL
