Tis the bookaversary of my first novel Hangover From Hell today.
Now there’s a sentence I never thought I would write. 😯 Even after signing the contract, I couldn’t quite believe ‘twould be published. I’m not a jot sure I’m convinced, even now… 😳
Best of all was the fact that MLRPress thought ’twas worth publishing. That’s a bit of a fib… Bestest was that they did so while allowing my boys to remain entirely themselves. I was convinced that Daniel (at the very least) would have to be diluted to a shadow of himself to be deemed publishable. That he wasn’t, means more than I can say without sounding like a loon. I’m so grateful to have been gifted one of the loveliest women I’ve ever known as my editor, and can’t thank her ’nuff for wading through my wafflish with nary a wtf? No matter what ye olde idiom I inflicted upon her.
Anyhoo… March 9th will fore’er remain a day to treasure in my memory stash. So I couldn’t let this day pass without thanking those who made it possible…and the much cherished readers who risked winding up with a Hangover from Hell.
