Letting Go of Baby

Last night I checked over the second proof for Killer Career and had to make a tough decision. Should I let my baby walk on her own two feet or hold onto her longer? I'm calling her a girl, since that's what's on the cover.

I'd already restrained baby once when I'd found little things here and there that weren't exactly right. Was it time for her to face the world?

Knowing she has to sink or swim sooner or later, I clicked the box to approve the proof and let go of baby. Now she's on her own, but she'll be visiting me with plenty of author copies to make available for reviews, family and friends, as well as special doings which require me to bring her along. I know I can never really let go of her, although I do hope she can stand on her own merits and make a name for herself.

  1. Is it rude to post here and beg for a review copy when they arrive.

  2. She's be okay! You taught her everything you know. Let her go out into the world!

  3. Hagelrat, I will definitely send you a review copy. My baby will be available in the UK and would love everyone there to know about her!

  4. LOL, I know what you mean, Morgan. And I admire you for going the self-pub route. Will be anxious to hear how it goes. And the excerpt certainly catches attention.

  5. Awesome!! Do you still have my details?
