Urban Fantasy writer Rachel Vincent just had her debut a couple of days ago, and it already looks like the launch was a major success. Congratulations Rachel! It's a really big deal, and I hope that STRAY does wonderfully.
However, yesterday Rachel made an interesting post on what the day after publication feels like. Bleh. Her feelings are understandable, and something that we should all keep in mind as we strive to reach publication. As was noted yesterday, if you craft your entire identity around reaching some ethereal goal, you'll always be disappointed. Fortunately, Rachel Vincent clearly hasn't done that. Here's hoping that we can all make our way through such major writer's-life events with such equanimity.
