Coming Soon

It's almost here! OUT OF THE DARKNESS is listed on The Wild Rose Press website in the coming soon section. Just go to the link and scroll down until you see my title. At the moment, there's no link for ordering a print version of the book, but there will be once the book becomes available on May 28.

I think I'm excited but it's not that same burst of euphoria I felt when I first saw the artist's rendition of my book cover. Right now, everything just feels sort of surreal. Like nothing has changed. But I know once my release day is here and I can hold a print version in my hands, I'll feel that surge of excitement again.

It's just taken me so long to get to this point in my career that I'm not sure I believe it yet. I still don't feel like an author. Has anyone else ever felt this way?

If you're an author, how did you feel when you were between signing a contract and actually seeing your book in print? Was it like being a child again and waiting for Christmas morning to arrive?

Or was it more like finishing college? You were glad the day finally arrived but you didn't quite know what to do next or what to expect?

I feel like the college graduate. I'm glad my release date is almost here, but I don't know what to expect so I'm not getting too excited. Yet...

Now I want to know how other authors feel. Share your experience...


  1. You've waited so long for this! Congratulations! Clearly, I can't tell you how I'd feel as I've not been in your shoes yet (please let it be YET!), but I have no doubt you're excitement will come when you have the book in your hands! Can't wait until it's in mine too! I've got some catching up to do. :)

  2. Thanks Andris. Guess now I have to get back to working on the next book!
