My title says it all.
I had this wonderful, thought provoking, craft educational post all thought out and outlined for today, but nope, that will wait for another day.
Last night at 9:05pm I received an email from BurialDay Books:
Thank you for sending us “Antidote for the soul.”
We love your story and would like to publish it in the Gothic Blue Book!
We will be in touch shortly with a more formal letter and details.
I am an author (soon to be officially published in both ebook and traditional print) and teach others how to write, yet I can find no words to describe how I felt at that moment. Excited, too pale and blah. Elated, nope, not enough hop to it. Ecstatic, not enough zing. Euphoric, getting closer, but still not enough to describe that one moment in time.
Everything just froze. I read it and re-read it. I then got up, did my happy puppy dance all over the room as I called all those who had helped me on my journey. It was a moment I hope to relive in the future, but no matter what, I will always remember and work back towards that feeling.
It’s true. As of the end of next month, my words will be in ebook and traditional print format. People will be able to go out and buy them, take them home, read them,
judge them, enjoy them. I have street cred.
Exciting and humbling all in the same breath. So, next rounds on me, folk. Let’s celebrate!
