Two weeks ago, I turned in copyedits for NORTH TO YOU. Copyedits: the last time I can do any changes. Copyedits: the last moment when I see my work as a manuscript, before it becomes a book.
I might have sniffed a couple of tears when I sent it in. Because this last part, this last trimester before giving birth to my book baby might be the hardest part in which I feel the most helpless. This is when I wait. I wait and hope and dream that I've done enough. That I nourished this book with the proper words. That I watered it with sufficient emotion. That I strengthened it with plot and conflict. And I won't know these answers until my book comes out and it's in your hands.
Up to this point, I've been overcome with such support. Online and off, I've felt your excitement and pride, and much of this last trimester is this--it's this amazing feeling of being able to share these characters and their love. As much as I want to see the end result of all this effort, I want you to have it in your hands too. Because that's why writers write: to share thoughts and concepts, to be able to talk about it, to agree or to disagree. To create conversation. And in this book's case, to spread a little bit of the love I feel for the special people in my life.
I'm running a giveaway until the 16th of March! I've dubbed it the Take that Journey Giveaway. Besides my series name Journey to the Heart, I *so* believe in the hero and heroine's journey--in our journey--because the prize IS the journey and the journey IS the prize.
Therefore, we should celebrate the milestones, right?
