ASUNDER is finally in stores today.
I’m eager for people to read it. Excited. Nervous. Feeling so blessed and happy that real people will read this. Feeling extremely giddy at the thought of INCARNATE readers reading this one, too. I’ve seen so many questions, so many people asking But what about . . . ? and now (some of) those questions are going to be answered for people.
It’s a huge thing, thinking about people reading my book. It’s so much a part of me. I spent years with it, tearing it apart, putting it back together, ripping it up again, trying one more time for-real-this-time. And now it’s finished. It’s out of my hands and into yours.
I’m also just so, so grateful to the people who helped ASUNDER — and INCARNATE before it — get to the point where I’m proud to share this book. The acknowledgements section in ASUNDER is huge, for a good reason. I have a lot of people to acknowledge. I have a lot of people to be thankful for. From my agent to my editor to my crit partners to the readers who helped spread the word about a new soul.
If you’re reading this when it posts, I’m probably on a plane. Or in an airport waiting for a plane.
You might have heard that I have a few appearances coming up. If you’re anywhere near one of these cities, I’d love to see you. And don’t forget to tell me if we internet-know each other!
