Risk anything!  Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices.  Do the hardest thing on earth for you.  Act for your self.  Face the truth.

-Katherine Mansfield

Katherine’s quote seems appropriate for today as I just completed what I consider “the hardest think for me to do on earth”  and let me tell you – I am celebrating!

Because after many brilliant moments and some arduous labor pains, Katherine Mansfield has come to life. And there is no denying that it is a thrill to hold it in my hands – a one pound, 8″x 5.2″x .08”, 130,000 words, and 348 pages – filled with my words.

But now I must “face the truth”! and acknowledge that I have done all that I can for this shiny, beautiful, colorful baby of mine.  I must let it go out into the world on its own so that I can move on to the next hardest and most joyous thing on earth for me to do––Write another book!!!
