I went to Carrie Ryan's book launch yesterday. It seemed to be exactly how I envisioned it would be. Lots of goodies to snack on and giveaways, too. She signed books and at one point there was a long line. I'm sure that had to make her feel great. She is very personable and smiled a lot. Of course, I'm sure I'll be smiling a lot at my first book launch too. I thought about mine. When she was signing books and chatting with folks, giving hugs and posing for pictures, I thought about how she must have felt. EUPHORIC! :)

I can't wait to have that feeling. I guess that means I'll work even harder to get this novel revised. And make it so much fun to read that I know I'll snatch an agent. So I've come back into the real world. My real world. My real, prepublished world. But the next time I go to a book launch it might just be my own. Or definitely my critique partner Beth's. Which will make me almost as happy as my own. :)

  4. I'm glad you had a good time! AND, I'm glad this motivated you. Sometimes I'll go into a book story just to get myself going. I love the idea that someday my work will be on a shelf, packaged and polished.
