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. Smile

It feels great, doesn't it? I did the same thing a while back with "Magical Clothes" and it's pretty damn cool. Smile

I would imagine it's an overwhelmingly wonderful, amazing feeling to be holding your own book. I absolutely love your work, and will hopefully be able to purchase one of those wondermous novels soon. Thanks so much for sharing with everyone!!! Smile

Without your proofreading help I'd still be poking over the mss. Smile

Would an audio book be too far/much? I've never had one but this is something I really would enjoy listening to on my iPod while I'm sewing. Smile If not then I'll just sit down and record it myself for me, hahaha xD

I have the ability to do it. If I could get through it without giggling maniacally during the smutty bits, I'll do it.

I'm wondering if it might even be something that could be set up for a small fee--does iTunes let you charge $0.25-0.50? Maybe make all the bonus stories free (as a hook) but the regular chapters paid?

We'll see. My potential reader first needs to see if she can do it.

Get it sponsored -and- charge a small fee. I mean...it's free, there, on the web. Extras like book on tape, print copy--make it enough for your direct costs and maybe even a bit towards your household income Smile

SQUEEEEAAAALLL! Smile

That makes me extremely happy!!! Points for Han!

I'm rather nervous because one of my oldest friends is reading it right now (I have to get a new copy, in fact, so I have one to loan out), and I'm really really afraid it sucks. I kept going, eh, it's not that good. Eh, it's really pretty trashy, but I hope it's the good kind of trash. Eh, the next one will be better. Until she told me to shut up. Smile
