Back to work

After the recent good news of my historical release gossamer Wings, I must get back to my writing commitments to take my mind off the instant worries I get when one of my books has been released.

Don't get me wrong I feel enormously proud of my book and my hard work to get into print, but underlining that is the crushing feelings of what if....
What if no one buys it?
What if no ones likes it if they do buy it?
What if people proclaim me as a laughing stock that should be stoned from all writing implements?
Crazy huh?

So to combat all those insane thoughts, I do what any sane or perhaps insane person would do - I write another story! :o) Cool hey?
