Happy Friday dance!

snoopyIt’s Friday! It’s Friday!

Such tremendously good things are happening around here.

For one, it rained yesterday, and for those of us who live in California, any kind of precipitation is a pretty big deal, y’know. (Dear Lord, please send more.) It was like a May miracle, seeing those precious droplets of moisture create puddles in my street, and the thunder was like music to our ears.

In an hour I leave to meet my running buddies for lunch, then tonight I get to go to the book club I just started attending with some really hilarious, very well-read, fabulous ladies.  Such social decadence for this closet introvert, and all in one day. It’s almost like eating too much See’s Candies, but I’ll take it.

But wait, there’s more! I just found out from my publisher that the ARCs for Finding Pony will be ready in a few weeks. I can’t believe that it is finally happening; my book is being published. I am already dying over the cover, and I can’t wait to share who did it and who the cover model is.

And lastly, I finally outed myself as a writer on Facebook.

For whatever reason, this was absolutely terrifying, and I’m not sure why. Maybe because writing has been such an intensely private thing for me. Maybe it’s a fear of failure. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to be annoying. Maybe it’s because I fear my book is secretly crap and I’m afraid every single person in the entire universe will hate me for the rest of my life. I don’t know.

But you know what? Right now, as I type, I keep hearing my phone beep with comments from friends far and wide, and my heart is bursting with love for each and every one of you.

Thanks, guys, for the support. I mean it. I love you all.
