I’m so excited! I just heard that ONCE UPON A ROSE is receiving a starred review from LIBRARY JOURNAL! I can’t quote from it yet because the magazine doesn’t come out for another three weeks, but I had to share. (The book itself is coming Feb 3!)
I took a big emotional risk, in terms of stepping into creative entrepreneurship, when I turned down the 4-book contract from Kensington to publish La Vie en Roses series independently, so it really means a lot to me to have the series start off well and to have both the kind words coming back from you advanced readers and this honor from one of the major industry journals.
Thank you all so much for all the support and patience as I got this series off the ground!
And I need advice: One of the things I am supposed to be learning to do this year is to celebrate successes (this is supposed to teach me to overcome anxiety and stress). But it turns out I’m actually not very good at it! I usually just go straight back to worrying about the next thing I need to get done.
How do you celebrate your successes? (You are doing that, aren’t you? Because if not, then we need to develop our own little 12-step plan on how to help each other celebrate our successes!)
What are some ways that work for you?
