I can remember 12 years ago, when i was 24, thinking "Wow, this is it, maybe this'll be my year, maybe this'll be the year that one of my books gets accepted." I was wandering around San Francisco with my brother at the time, and everything touristy in Chinatown was dragon related. I was born in the year of the dragon, and thought "Why not now? Why not me?"
Now, it's the year of the dragon again...and I do have a book coming out. It only took 12 more years of persistence is all.
This year is actually going to be my year.
I'm nervous, but it feels great. Here. We. Go.
