It feels like the first time

June 7, 2008

It's almost time, so I've "acquired" the Amber Quill Press Amber Heat Wave Contest Winner 2008 logo for on my website and blog. Don't you love that right click, save as feature?

I've added the link to Surrendered Victory on the APQ site, and taken a deep breath. I'm not really sure what I expect to happen when this story goes live, all I can say is it feels like the first time all over again. I'm excited, and a little scared. What if no one likes the story? We writers can be an insecure lot, you know.

My second KC Kendricks story is finished and it's time to send it off to my editor and see what response I get. Maybe I should have sent it in sooner. Hmmm. Did I mention we writers like to second-guess ourselves, too?

Maybe I'll just go watch the Belmont Stakes, root for Big Brown, and then get back to work. That sounds like a good plan for a quiet Saturday night when it's too hot to sit on the porch swing and swat at the bugs.

New Kid on the Block

June 3, 2008

Being the "new kid" on the block isn't easy, especially if in another life you're the old veteran. Everyone at Amber Quill that I'd had occasion to speak with has been kind beyond measure. It means so much to be in a group with such spirit of generosity.

My thanks to Adrianna Dane for setting me up on the Amber Heat and Amber Allure Authors blog so I can blog there on June 22, 2008. And here. Blogs everywhere. Ain't it grand?
