I am pretty sure that the release of a first book is a little like falling in love. There is a part of my brain that is allocated to just saying “BOOK!!” excitedly, OVER AND OVER, like that’s all there is in life right now. It’s kind of a larger part of my brain than I have to spare, and sometimes I sit back and look at myself with fond exasperation.

It’s weird, and it’s surreal, and it’s amazing. And I am thankful to everyone who has helped make this the most wonderful experience.

After a week and a half, I’ve been thrilled to see Jordan’s introduction to the world. I have two beautiful reviews on GoodReads and lovely feedback on Facebook. I’ve been doing my mini blog tour, too, with excerpts hosted by MB Mulhall and Christopher Hawthorne Moss, and a guest blog post hosted by Madison Parker. There will be one more stop coming, hopefully later this week! And Saturday, Jordan was on the Smuggler’s radar.

It’s been an exciting time!

If you haven’t yet, check out Jordan’s birthday post for information on how you can win your own copy. I’m extending the contest to go until next Sunday to give more people a chance; there will be another big post about that tomorrow morning. And please come visit and talk to me on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, or right here!

About D. E. Atwood

When D.E. Atwood was in second grade, she finally grew tall enough to see the shelf above the mysteries in the bookmobile. She discovered a rich landscape of alternate worlds, magic, and space and has never looked back from the genres of fantasy and science fiction. When she was twelve, she declared that she was going to be a writer, and share the stories that she saw happening all around her. She wanted to create characters that others would care about, and that would touch their lives, like the books that she read had touched her own life. Today she has combined her interests, creating genre stories about the people who live next door, bringing magic into the world around us. When not writing, D.E. Atwood is a mother (to two children and a cat), a wife, a reader, a knitter, a systems administrator, a roleplayer, and a music aficionado. Sleep, she claims, is optional.
