I had a wonderful time yesterday hosting the release party on the Dreamspinner Press Blog. Since I knew I would be at school all day, I set my posts to go automatically every few hours. I checked the blog from my phone during lunch and was thrilled to see that I was getting comments. It's always so hard to know what to make posts about, so when you realize that people are actually interested, it's a wonderful feeling.
As soon as I got home, I jumped onto my computer and pretty much spent the evening there, responding. Some people were new to my writing, some had read me before. Believe me, writers really do care what people think about them. At least, I do.
Four years ago, I entered the publishing world with The Glass Man. Now I can't imagine what my life was like before -- it's fundamentally life altering. Scary as hell, but worth every second.
