Read the whole blog at the site. Excerpt here:
Writing a novel and putting it out into the world is like offering up a tiny part of yourself to be sampled and judged. You do it because something inside (something that defies logic) drives you to.
…there is magic in this. An actual buzz. Seeing the final book cover. Watching it ‘go live’ on amazon. Even blogging. I have never wanted to blog in my life. Now I have something to say, to share.
…..I thought that excitement had gone from my writing career maybe even my life. This IS a surprise.
