At midnight my first book, Desert Ice, went on sale at Loose Id. I find it ironic that as a writer I'm finding it difficult to map my way through the right words and phrases to adequately express just how I feel, and what I think. It's been a strange and wonderful journey.
I can't really remember a time when I didn't want to write. When I was in sixth grade, I wrote that I when I grew up I wanted to live in a log cabin in Alaska and be an author. I remember the first time I saw the movie Romancing the Stone, I wanted to be Joan Wilder.
So here I am. No, I don't live a log cabin, or Alaska. I'm not running through the jungles of South America looking for lost treasure. However, I am writing. I am dreaming up romantic adventures, scribling them down, and am sharing them.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have. I hope to have many more.
First moments are always big. They are, for good or bad, the brick and mortar of memories. They are the times which we often relive, and serve as foundations for future experiences.
So when I checked Loose Id site to discover Desert Ice was now listed under "Coming Soon" I found myself in a moment new, exciting, and abundant with happy expectation.
Seeing my first book listed on Loose Id's page cemented in me such a bright spark of joy and happiness I literally laughed aloud, and made me more determined that this first time would not be the only time.
I hope you'll join me in celebrating the arrival of Desert Ice. However, even if you don't, I hope the day brings you a happy moment of new discovery or adventure. I wish that you too have a reason to revel in a first.
