What does it feel like to publish your first novel? As a professional writer and journalist who’s dreamed of publishing a novel since she was a fetus, let me count the ways …
Like skydiving in your underwear.
Like singing “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift while cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway with your best friend.
Like celebrating the Fourth of July all week long.
Like sticking it to the man (YEAH)!
Like tasting real butter after a lifetime of eating nothing but margarine.
Like the raunchy college party you’ll forget the next day, but wish you wouldn’t.
Like you’re the baddest mother-&*^% who’s ever written a story in the history of human existence.
Did I forget anything? 😉
