I got my first review for Too Darn Hot today. At least I think it’s my first. There’s always Kirkus. Usually that comes first. But this review is a bit early this year, so who knows?
Is it good? Yes. I’m very pleased. I just looked at this blog at this time last year and I was still writing the first draft. One of my characters had done something I hadn’t expected.
I knew last week that this PW review was coming and then I kept forgetting about it. This is new for me. Last year I didn’t know when it was coming so I can’t compare. I can only compare to early and middle days of being a published writer. I’d be very anxious and then if it was bad I’d go to bed for the day. Or week.
God, I’m glad I’ve grown older and maybe wiser.
