As I wrote in an earlier post, my first solo novel will be released by Totally Bound on February 20th.

Excited doesn’t begin to describe it; there is quite a bit of ‘scared’ mixed in with the feeling.
As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day I also received an email informing me that print copies of Little Rainbows will be released on March 20th, the same date on which the e-book will go on general release. Given that I hadn’t realised the book would be available in anything besides e-book format you can imagine the squealing sounds reverberating through my house this morning. I guess it betrays my age, but I’m not ashamed to say that print copies made the whole idea of being a published author that much more real for me.
