I'm a Geek...

I’m so excited! My first book, Overlord’s Vessel, was released last Friday, I’ve gotten real live letters from readers as well as my first review—all of which have been fabulously positive. Apparently everyone, including the reviewer from The Romance Studio, wants Asher’s story. I think I can manage that. J

Despite all of this excitement, I can’t help but feeling like a giant geek. For some unfathomable reason, the external validation I’ve received from people I don’t know somehow seems more valid than the feedback I’ve received from friends and family. Perhaps it’s the underlying fear that the people I know are just trying to protect my feelings, or, as my father would say, blow sunshine up my skirt. Conversely, the positive comments I’ve received from other authors has made me completely giddy. It’s very strange.

Maybe I’m just neurotic. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon or am I alone in my neurosis? Either way, I’m thrilled that people are enjoying Micah and Elizabeth’s story — whether I know them or not!
