A Writer’s Life: Let’s Talk About the Highs

For the most part, a writer’s life is a solitary endeavour – family and friends ensure that we have love, conversations and connections – thank goodness for them, or we’d be a bit hermit like!

In every writer’s life, there are five amazing highs:

1. When an idea formalizes in your mind and the words begin to flow
2. When you’ve finished your manuscript
3. When a publishing house accepts it
4. When the galleys arrive in your inbox
5. When you hold the actual book in your hand

Yesterday, I realized number four: the galleys for my next book arrived, complete with cover. It’s a wonderful feeling, a bit scary, because this is your very last chance to make changes before you sign off on the manuscript.

As Chuck Palahniuk so succinctly put it: “We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”

I’m so excited about “The Darkness Between the Stars,” and want to share the cover with you:
