My first day as an author…

What a strange experience to become an author.  There was so much work to get to this point. While there will be marketing work to do, the creative work for Other Systems is over. I have another project in the queue, but that will have to wait until Norwescon is over to begin.

I feel like it is time to sleep or celebrate, but I have done both of these things. I admit that it does not actually feel real. After all, not much has changed yet. Maybe it never will. Thousands of writers have only ever written and published one book. I am terrified that might be my fate, though I do not really believe it will. After all, I have proven my determination in comics and as I said in the above, I have another book in the wings. It’s just that my life is as it was the day before. I have gone grocery shopping, walked the dogs, done laundry, and made dinner. Like my friend Viv said, I want a ticker tape parade or something.

However, one thing made it seem more real. Seeing it in stores:

Here is the link for Barnes&Noble

Though it is my publisher who pushes it to stores: seeing it makes me feel more accomplished. I realize that is completely goofy, but that is how I feel.
