The editor of MindFlights let me know the announcement about my book went up, and a preliminary page for the first chapter is around.
I’m having JITTERS.
I know the point of writing a story is to have people read it, but I always have this moment of terror when something is about to go live. The more I love it, the more jittery I become.
It’s not quite live yet. And it doesn’t help matters that the editor forwarded me a list of corrections to the story (all dumb typos — half of them probably included when I was fixing other dumb typos) so I feel like a klutz. (Not as much of a klutz as I’d have felt if they HADN’T caught 500 typos, by the way, so I’m glad for it.)
They’re finalizing the cover and such. This is for real. That’s scary. Neat, but scary.
Here: go look at the book’s website and come back here again in a while when I’ll post, with shaking hands, that the first chapter is actually live on the magazine.
