Tuesdays will never be the same again. At least, not for me anyway. Every other day of the week is going to have to contend with the fact, that on this Tuesday, the 25th of February, I have finally seen my name in a real, honest to goodness book! There are words that I’ve written, a lot of them, printed on the pages of just over a thousand physical books and they are there because I did that thing. I sat down, and I made some stories and now people are going to read them!
Yes, yes yes… I know, I know. It was self-published, there’s only a thousand copies and those aren’t really going to appear in many stores so … Well, you can shut up about all that, people who aren’t really criticizing. You may be the voices in my head, but today I have no time for you. Today, I have accomplished something. It may be a first step, but by God, I’m walking down that road now.
I always wonder if I’m doing as well by Edge of December as I can. This latest story arc in particular has dragged on much longer than I was envisioning a FEW MONTHS ago when I wrote it, and I’m wondering if I didn’t make a mistake with the pacing. That being said, there’s been a lot of fun stuff, and character detail that got revealed in the last coupele chapters, and I have a hard time feeling really truly bad about it.
Today, though? Today I’m just going to bask in the awesome that is this book. I’m going to flip through the pages, look at the spectacular art, and just maybe, reread a few of the words that I put there. Or, that’s what I would do if I wasn’t busy writing on something else. Back to the coal mines, I suppose. This short story ain’t gonna edit itself!
P.S. If you’re interested in getting yourself a copy of that beautiful book pictured at the top of the page, meander your way over here and buy a copy of your own!
