Well, last week the first of the ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) went out to the bloggers participating in the Release Day Blogging event.
Yes, I was a bit nervous.
This series is WAY different than the Wasteland novels.
It’s not first person male point of view. There aren’t 400 year-old demons as main characters. No ancient Guardians. . .
YIKES. I said vampires!
But trust me…the vampires in this book don’t sparkle. They’re just plain…evil
Back to my point…I tend to digress when I’m nervous. LOL.
The first ARCs went out last week, and that’s when the nail-biting began. It’s scary sending out your “baby” to people to read who are outside the critique group and editors who’ve read the manuscript. What if they all hate it? What if..What if..What if..
Then I got a little twitter note from someone reading it telling me they were enjoying it. **Happy Dance**
More nail biting ensued, and then I worked up enough courage to click into Goodreads to see what the verdict was.
I nearly fell over with excitement. This story has a LONG history, one I’ll share eventually, so it was just nice to see it start off with a good review.
I know the low-ratings/reviews will come, because I know I can’t write something everyone will love. But it was nice to start it off on a high note.
October 16th is coming…so stay tuned for Emma and Jake’s story.
