Emotional Overload

I know I've apologized profusely in the past for my incredibly lazy blogging. It's not that I don't love posting my everyday inanities on here ;o) but I've been beyond busy dealing with work and trying to eradicate sickness from the house (MUCH harder than it sounds. We have literally caught every cough, cold, stomach virus, etc. circulating in our hometown!)

But I just wanted to try and describe what I'm feeling now that The Blackmailed Bride is out on the shelves and being read by people I've never met.

I'm thrilled.

I'm amazed.

I'm overwhelmed, blessed, delighted...every positive emotion you can name...I'm pretty sure I've felt it in the last few weeks.

This journey has been full of unexpected surprises and blessings. I've met some fantastic people along the way. And not only have I learned a lot about writing and the publishing industry during this process, but I've also learned a lot about myself. It may sound sappy, but it's true.

And let me say to everyone, I'm so thankful for the support and encouragement. More than I could ever say.

So, to sum it the end of the day, when I see my copy of The Blackmailed Bride sitting on the bookshelf, I feel content.
