It's incredibly weird to think that this is a day I've looked forward to for years. Certainly since I finished the first draft of Duskfall back in 2010, but if I'm honest I've been dreaming about publishing a book since high school.
I don't know what else to say other than that, really. This is incredible. I feel grateful to be surrounded by so many supportive, loving, generous people in my life.
It's the summer solstice, we've got strawberry moons going on, and my first novel has been unleashed upon the world. If that isn't the planets aligning, I don't know what is :-).
