Let’s just say that the last day or so has been a lot like this*:
I’ll admit, a large amount of the last week has consisted of me looking like this:
But more importantly, this day is a day for a lot of celebration. It’s a day I’ve been waiting for…for a long time. A really long time. One might say just this side of forever.
I’ll admit. I’ve been squashing my emotions a lot lately. There’s hope and joy and enthusiasm and excitement — and there’s the part of my rational brain that tells me to simmer down. So down I simmer. The problem with that approach is that you sometimes end up missing out on one of the best parts of any major happening: anticipation.
But today…TO HELL WITH RATIONAL REALISM, I’MA BE EXCITED IF I WANT TO BE, DAMMIT.
Here’s what I went through to get to this day**:
1. Battled a balrog.
2. Was slain by the Spirit.
3. Went for a joyride.
4. Had some me time.
5. Had a dance party.
Basically, a lot happened. Important stuff, you guys. AND I AM WAY TOO EXCITED TO GIVE THIS MOMENT ANY ACTUAL GRAVITAS.
MAYBE I HAVE SOME STORED AWAY SOMEWHERE.
*RUSTLES FOR GRAVITAS*
Totally was kidding on the “have gravitas somewhere.” Ask me next week.
But here we are. THE MASKED SONGBIRD is now out in the wild for you to read and enjoy! EEHEEE!
You can get it from these places, O Gentle Viewer! It’s available today in a lovely, action-packed, badassery-magnet sort of box set, so you get four books for the price of one. GET THEE TO THE DIGITAL SHOPPING CART!
You should also be able to find it on iBooks if you so desire!
A big thank you to everyone who has read this blog through the prolific years to the sparse posts of this year. You all hold a big, fuzzy place in my heart. And if you go out and buy THE MASKED SONGBIRD, know you’re helping make this little Emmie’s long-held dreams a reality. If you like Gwen’s story, then I’ve done all I set out to do.
Love and kisses,
*if you replace pretty much everything in there with Coke and M&Ms
**it’s possible some of this is metaphorical
