It's always been my dream to publish a novel and now that it's almost ready for the world to see, I suddenly feel all naked and exposed.
What if no one likes it? What if people prefer the blog to the book? What if no one buys it? What if the critics absolutely slate it? Am I strong enough to handle the negative reactions that will undoubtedly come my way?
Everyone has a right to their own opinions. We thankfully live in an age where freedom of speech is accepted, appreciated, encouraged. You can't please everyone. I know that, but that doesn't stop the butterflies buzzing around in my stomach :(
I don't know where the book will be available (other than Amazon), I don't know how it will be received, but I suppose I do know one thing. No matter what anyone says, I know I've done myself proud. I've achieved my childhood dream, and that cannot be taken away. :)
SO DEEP BREATHS Ghost Writer... or Ameera as you will soon be known as. (Yes, I'm talking to myself in the third person :s ). Calm down, and just enjoy the ride while you can. After all, who knows when you'll be pulled onto his train again.
