We’ve Gone Full Circle
As I sit here today, watching reviews pour in on goodreads, I am overwhelmed with one thought and one thought alone.
I can’t believe we made it.
If you had told me just two weeks before I got my offer from NineStar Press that I was about to find a home for Seven-Sided Spy I would have likely laughed in your face and said “good joke.”
I was in a really bad place. I’d just been rejected across the board from MFA programs around the country. I’d been facing rejection with 7SS for over 6 months. I was graduating school with a bundle of debt and had limited job prospects. I felt trapped by my manuscript.
If you had asked me then about my writing. I’d have told you:
I love it, but I’ll never be good enough to do anything with it.
It’s for this reason, that today is such a blissful and cathartic reckoning. Seven-Sided Spy is now officially released, from me, to you.
I have poured the last four years of my life into this project, in-between classes, on bus rides, while laying in the ER, on flights from Chicago to Memphis it’s been a constant for me.
All I can say now is thank you for waiting and thank you for taking the time to get to know this intimate part of me. There are so many people to whom I owe today to. My parents, my partner, my best friends, there are so many more of you, thank you for everything.
I’ll likely fall quiet for a bit here, but it’s only because I’m hard at work on the next great thing.
Thanks for hanging in there.
