Tomorrow is release day for my book ALONE. It feels a bit like putting a message in a bottle and tossing it into the ocean. I don't know who will read it. And of those who do read it, I don't know who will like it.
I have friends and family who have expressed interest in the book, and that's encouraging. It's exciting, scary, and a bit awkward as well.
But then there's that whole sea of readers. Hard to know how many my "bottle" will reach, although I am working on promotion. Where will the waves of social media take this ebook? How long will it float on the ocean of books being read?
And there's the odd-feeling fact that no more fixing will be done on this story. Despite all the help it's had, I know errors will surface. I guess, to mix my metaphors, it's a bit like raising a child and having her move out of the house. Tomorrow and the days after, I'm not responsible for the places this book goes or how it is received. I've done my part and just get to watch and see what happens.
