My novella is released!!

I'm still rather in shock about all of this, but I have proof that I've earned my first non-fanfiction/non-fandom royalties. I have no idea how this (somewhat fluffy, especially for me) work will be received, both by people who are intimately familiar with my fanfic, and those who don't know me from Eve's housecat. Hopefully readers will fall for the characters as I did, but I just have no idea. I hope to have the sequel submitted to Dreamspinner within a few weeks, and I'll be very intrigued to see how sales for Surprised at Nothing go, given its genre. Urban fantasy works aren't the highest sales generators at Dreamspinner.

Rather than put in all of the links where you can go get a copy of my e-book, I'm pasting in a link to the post on my authorly blog made specifically for promoting my work at Dreamspinner. Surprised at Nothing is available in e-book form via a variety of websites and locations. Here's the post:

If you do buy it and read it, please let me know your thoughts! I want each successive work that I put out there that's original fiction to be of the caliber of my best fanfic. And if you don't buy it, that's totally okay too. I'm honestly worried that I will disappoint people who know my intense, sometimes bleak, angsty fanfic. But it's my first completed attempt at world building.

Yeah. I am so proud of you. This is so very cool, and that is not the best description for how awesome this is, but I'm at a loss for words.

Are they going to have a print version too? I'd love to have both.

Good luck with sales :)

Thank you so much!! There won't be a print version as far as I know- perhaps if it somehow moves into Dreamspinner's top 10% or something they'll release it in paperback, but that's not how they start out.

I was just trying to remember when you'd said it was going to be coming out! It's now! Yay!!

I'm so happy for you and proud of you. I hope it sells a gazillion copies.

Can't wait for it to be made into actual published books as me and Kindle still aren't exactly close, if you know what I mean. LOL>

Anyway, so happy and super congrats.

Thank you so much for your kind words and support!! I'd love for it to sell 100 copies. Or more! ;)

If you did buy it from Dreamspinner, you can have it as a PDF kind of thing- the one DSP book I bought to support a new writer friend from the Dreamspinner author yahoo group, I downloaded it and read it on my computer, but it was in a format that I could have decided to print out. But no pressure since you read the first version. I'm hoping to have the sequel done in a couple of weeks and may ask if you'd be interested to read it as well. ♥
