And yes, I know that title may not be ideal. But the phrase neatly captures how I feel.
I just loaded Redemption onto Amazon. I have to say my little heart was beating double-time when I hit the Save and Publish button. Is this the way all newbie writers feel?
I’ve poured so much time and effort into this story, I really want it to do well. I don’t have many illusions. I wrote a gay romance/sci-fi/thriller. If that’s not niche publishing, I don’t know what is. I’m not going to sell a zillion copies, and that’s okay. But I want the readers who do discover it to enjoy it. I know it’s a cliche, but I truly feel as if I’m sending my child off alone into the cold, cruel world.
Please be kind, world. If nothing else, think of the mother!
