The Big Day is Here!
















For authors, the wait between releases feels interminable. I've learned that in the past year or so now that I wear two hats, author and agent. The hardest part is that you've finished the book and you are dying--absolutely dying--for the world to share in your creation. I would say that most writers don't feel their work has come fully to fruition until at least someone, just one person, has read it. It's a lonely business, this writing gig, in that you create in a void. You're writing along, you think what you've come up with is good, but until someone else gives life to that creation, you don't feel the full sense of completion.

So it's with great joy that I anticipate my latest baby PARALLEL HEAT going on sale tomorrow. I know some will love the book, some may not, but the main thing is that the work will be *out there*. Where others can read it, and that's such an incredible blessing--one I will never, ever take for granted.

Thanks to all of you who are on this amazing journey with me. And do let me know what you think! I love to hear from my readers and friends.
hugs, Deidre

Deidre what I love about the book birth is the journey you take after it's out. It's like an adventure you never imagined. The things that this creation brings you - the side trips that can amaze you. Enjoy it. It's the dessert and it's addictive.

What does one wish - ????

Break a finger!!! LOL

What's my verification word...

that's actually a very good optimistic word and maybe we make it a good omen as well. :-)

Congratulations on the release, Deidre! My copy should be shipping as I write this!
I look forward to joining your online chat at the agency tonight (if I can get on!).
In the meantime, bask in your glory, you deserve it!
