NOT QUITE DEAD release!!!!!

Tuesday, August 15, 2006
This is it! I'm a real live author now. My book. My story. The one I cried and sweated and cussed over is published today.

It's right there for everyone to see on the front page at Samhain Publishing.

See? Right there.

I was really calm all morning. I had to get everyone ready, do the school run. I should have gone to the grocery store, but my laissez faire facade could only carry me so far.

Run, bloglets! Run over and look at my cover and read my excerpt and then run back and try to talk me down. I'm pinging hard and haven't even had a single cup of coffee yet.

Edit: ATTENTION BARGAIN SHOPPERS! For the low, low price of $3.15 -- not the formerly advertised $3.50 -- this little gem can be yours now! Don't delay, shoppers!

Here I'd been having these endless conversation with friends over the past forty years, all of us saying the novel was dead.
Well, it's back.
You've brought a dead one back for us.

Thanks, Bernita. *gg*

It's alive -- it's alIIIIVE!!! In literary circles the novella died with Rainer Maria Rilke. *snap* Who knew it would only take one dead guy to bring it back?

May it sell like crazy. *ggg*
(Isn't it the most AWESOME feeling??!)

Congrats! I hope you have wonderful readers who love your characters. I'd hug you, but you're pinging all over the place.:P

Now, didn't the CeeBees tell you this story was golden? Yes, we did. ;)

You deserve this -- and I cannot wait to read the complete, polished version.

For the low low price of $3.15US I'm reading it. Not very far into it, granted, but it's very good so far :D

*sniff sniff* Awww, you guys!

I can't even begin to express how much I appreciate y'all's support today. It's kept my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds all at the same time.

As long as I live, I'm going to remember this day.

Just to reassure you, it is funny.

Waaiilllll. It won't let me order it. WWWAAAAA

Calming down.

Hope it just means that too many people are trying to get it at the same time.

Hopefully. Unfortunately, MBaM experiences odd glitches on a semi-regular basis. Wait it out and if it doesn't work on your next try, go ahead and e-mail customer service. I'll say this for them -- they have wonderfully responsive customer service.
