BIG BIG Announcement!!!!

Hola readers!
I have something H U G E I wanted to share with you!

Like I am so scared and excited.

I have no clue what I'm doing.

No clue.

I'm pretending I know.

Really I am.

But I don't.

So.

I'm dragging this out as long as possible.

BUTTTTTT.

Readers.

After prayer and thinking and even fasting.........as of now. At this moment in time I'm....

Self publish my novel, The Broken Prince.


*my I don't know what to think face*


I'm excited.
And terrified.
And like I said, I have no clue what I'm doing.
But this isn't a rash decision. For a long time I've thought and pondered and I have many reasons for this choice. Namely one is that I feel called to it and I'm terrified -- more terrified then if I chose to continue to pursue getting an agent. It's not because I'm giving up because honestly I think this is one of the biggest steps I'll have taken towards my dream.
I'm going to do a big post on this sometime next week but more now I just had to share the news. I'm not making this terribly public...I mean my blog IS public but doing more then my blog and social media, I'm probably going to keep this quiet...because I'm always too scared to tell people. Even writing it makes my heart lurch.
It's a terrifying step -- I really have no clue what I'm doing so hang in with me. I would LOVE help getting the word out about the novel once the time get's closer and I have more information. Just for now.....let's just say I'm scared.
And happy.
And basically every emotion possible.
The release will probably be late spring/early summer. I already have a lot of planning done due to having decided this for at least a month. I've used every spare moment in planning and I still feel clueless.
So again, bare with me.
The journey has just begun.
