The never-ending thrill!

I think most authors would agree that whether you’ve written your second book or your twenty second, the thrill of publishing day is never-ending. As a self-published author, it’s that moment when you get the email, click on the link and see your book in the online store for the first time! For traditionally published work, it could be the moment you get the call or that first copy that you can hold in your hands, and run your fingers over the name on the cover! Your heart jumps and then warms and finally feel this sense of completion – that after all those hours, days, months and even years, you finally have the final piece ready! Now, it’s just time for others to get a look at it.

I had all those feelings earlier today when my second short story got published!

A Bond Unbroken is a love story of two people forced apart by time and destiny, and their bond which continues to hold them together and brings them back. This 25 page story is perfect for a quick read and is available in the Kindle Store at

When I saw it up there, available for purchase, I felt everything from happiness to nervousness, and a myriad of emotions in between. So what do you feel when you finally see your book up for sale – online or at a store?
