Happy Book Birthday… To ME! (and BroodingYAHero)

Well, here it is. The morning of my book birthday, and the day I give BroodingYAhero’s story over to you, the readers.

I’m so thrilled and truth be told, utterly nervous.

Everyone dreams of being an author. I certainly have since I was five. Now that I am SO close to being once (at the time of writing this) I think, it feels different every single day. Some days I catch myself just gazing dreamily at my book, my REAL book, on my bookshelf. Other days, I get hit with the “oh, if only I had done this and this and this instead…” bug. Other other days, I hear from a reader or friend that they liked it, and I swear I’m floating. Still other days, I consider running away and hiding in some cave in Scotland, away from all these writerly thoughts. 

Most days, though, I am so happy to be an Author, and to share this odd, wonderful novel with you, the reader. BroodyBook isn’t like any other book, and I think Brooding YA Hero wouldn’t have it any other way.

This adventure has had a lot of ups and downs, but I’m so utterly glad to share it with you. BroodingYAHero was started to make friends smile, and I think, if the legacy of the book featuring our Broody hero is to make even more people smile, well, that is a legacy I can be proud of. I am just so so amazed my dream is finally here.

I am an Author.

Thank you so much to every single person who preordered, requested from the library, recommended, reviewed, and tweeted. You are amazing.

I’d like to take one minute to personally thank Linnea Gear, the illustrator of this book. Her beautiful art made this story come alive, and I’m utterly thrilled to work with her. You can check out her other work here: link to portfolio and here: link to DISSENT, her webcomic.

Summary 

After two weeks of having no authors ask him to star in their stories, book hero Broody McHottiepants tries to write his own novel, despite interruptions from ex-girlfriend Blondie DeMeani. Includes quizzes, lists, and games.

Thank you all again for reading! I can’t wait to celebrate today with you! (Despite what he says, Broody is looking forward to it too)

    Congrats! I saw Broody at the BN yesterday and see what you mean about the pics and how they differ from the ARC! The FC is beautiful! I am eager to read it, and thank you again for thinking of me!
