This is a beautiful moment. My book. My very own masterpiece. Right now, Brusenna is traveling the globe, headed to nearly 250 reviewers, some as far away as Australia and Greece. Watching it go creates an overwhelming medley of emotions.
Relief that we finally made it.
Pride in what I've accomplished.
Fear because I've sent something dear to me to people for judgement. And judge it they will.
There's also a sense that I need to let it go. This book has been a part of me. If people hate the book, it feels like they hate that part of me. Deep down, I know this won't be healthy.
So I'm turning my face away. Witch Song was something I did. It is not me. I'm exceedingly proud of it. But not everyone else will love it as I have.
And that's okay.
Also, I'd like to announce the WINNER of Matched by Ally Condie plus all kinds of signed swag. Congrats, Kris!
