The Birth of a Book - In the Hands of Women - now available
For a writer, the publication of a book is like a birth, although typically with a gestation period closer to an elephant (18-22 months). The event is accompanied by a full symphony of emotion - exhilaration, joy, pain, fear and closure - sometimes in harmony and sometimes quite dissident. But like a newborn, at birth the writer must let go, believing and hoping beyond all hope, that this work of the heart will succeed in the world.
That about sums it up for the week. My novel is out and I'm feeling excited and emotionally drained. Early reviews have been extraordinary, buttressing my fears as I move to the prequel, Threadbare, hoping it will be a welcome second, perhaps middle child in the trilogy I have planned.
