THE DARK GARDEN IS OUT NOW!!!

My first print novel came out today! I was sort of giddy and manic all day (classic me), smiling a lot, half out of my head. Seeing my book on the bookshelves was so surreal. It was hard to believe that it was really happening. Publishing can be a long process-about 18 months since I contracted this book-so when the day finally arrives and your work is right there, in a store, where people can see it, where they can actually buy it...it's just too weird.
For a writer, I'm oddly lacking in words tonight. But my cheeks hurt from smiling and I'm exhausted from having expended so much emotion-lol! We writers are an emotional bunch.
So-I went to several of my local bookstores with my boyfriend and my Dad and my step-mom. They've all been so supportive of me through this entire process. They happily trailed around with me, grinned like idiots while I was signing stock, took me out for a lovely celebration lunch, and took lots of pictures. Most of them are just me with my book, which I'm sure will bore most of you to tears, but I'm going to be completley self-indulgent and post a bunch of 'em, anyway!
(BTW-my Dad and my boyfriend both have their sunglasses perched on their head, so even though it looks as though they both are sprouting some sort of weird antennae, we just live in L.A. And yes, I know my boyfriend and I are wearing matching clothing. I have no idea how that happened. I swear.)
