I GOT THE BOOK!!!
You guys, I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I'm holding a book--a real live paper book--with my name on it. Well, my pen name. But the words inside? All mine. And yes, self-published, and I did all the typography and design and stuff. Still. Holy shit.
I WROTE A BOOK!
If you've been waiting for me to say, yes, it proofs out okay, this is me saying yes, it proofs out okay.
