Like I said in my post “The Five Books That Made Me” I can get pretty sentimental about books and my history in reading when one of my novels is about to be released.
It’s like a kid going off to college! Packing the bags could be working with the editor, the drive there could be finalizing everything with the publisher, and dropping them off is the big goodbye. So that’s me this week, the parent trying to hide the tears.
Okay, I’m a little surprised this analogy is working…. What would that make the aftermath of the publishing? No idea there, but the grades are reviews, right? Perfect. Hopefully, my book won’t party too much.
A Jane Austen Daydream is set for release on April 30 exclusively via amazon.com, ending a project of years in the making. I could not be happier with the novel and I look forward to hearing what everyone thinks of it. Until then I am going to continue to enjoy my sentimentality. Care to join me? Here are ten of my favorite posts on my site around books:
- Missing My Vonnegut Moment
- Me, Myself & Charles Dickens
- I get James Joyce… Well, no, not really
- Ray Bradbury
- Maurice Sendak: Childhood Visionary
- J.R.R. Tolkien; The Crazy & Magical Grandfather
- Say Hello to Mr. DeVere, I Mean Shakespeare…
- Hidden Away: The Marvel of Disappearing Writers
- The Folio Society: Celebrating Literature
- Living With Snoopy
Only a few days left!
