I'd like you guys to think that this is what I looked like when I opened the package on my front porch and found five galleys of my book.
Calm. Collected. Professional. Unflappable.
But... I didn't look anything like that.
The first photo was screaming...
The second photo was gummy.
Like, seriously gummy.
Like, bouncing here and there and everywhere,
high adventure that's beyond compare gummy.
And then, after jumping up and down for twenty minutes,
I finally captured that first photo.
But inside, I'm screaming and gummy.
It's my first galley, y'all.
My book is a book.
The cover's not on yet. But the words are there.
And that's what's really important, right?
If you see me any time soon, expect that I will shove this light blue book in your face and yell, "OH MY GOD, SMELL IT. IT'S REAL," and then I'll grab it back and yell, "DON'T GET STAINS ON IT, YOU WALKING APE! I'VE ONLY GOT FIVE."
One step closer to my dreams.
