And the title of this blog is the EXACT OPPOSITE of how I feel.
This is my sixth novel; you’d think it would get old, right? But honestly, it doesn’t. Though the process gets a little easier, a little more familiar (sort of like giving birth to your sixth child, if you aren’t too squeamish for that metaphor), it’s still an utter thrill to bring a new book into the world. Knowing all those pre-orders are winging their way to readers (you pre-ordered it, right?), seeing it on bookstore and library shelves, and hearing from people who’ve read it — all of that is just as much fun with the sixth book as it was with the first.
