Excitement over HUNTED ARC

I just got my ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) for HUNTED in the mail! It is SUCH a thrill to be able to hold a book that I put so much of myself into, and that was only words on paper–to be able to see and feel and hold an actual book! (beaming) I got so excited I wanted to share that with you (see my video below).

There are a lot of really low lows in being a writer–rejections, the isolation, the time it takes between writing and editing a book and having it become a book, worry about earning a living as a writer, etc. So when the highs come, I think it’s really important to celebrate them and really enjoy them. And getting my ARC was such a high!
