Lovers in Arms - Publication Date  
There is an official publication date for 'Lovers in Arms' - June 22nd, 2012.

This Friday. Like, the day after tomorrow.

It all still feels rather unreal to me. I'll probably print out the book's Amazon.com page and pin it to the wall over my desk at home so I have to look at it constantly. Maybe it'll become more credible that way. 

In some ways, I feel like a fraud right now. I mean, I just write for fun, I am no artist. I write in a foreign language, for god's sake, mostly to hide from myself how bad I really am. I fear that once the story goes on sale, I'll be swamped by angry zero-star reviews demanding to get their money back.

I know this is just a writer's version of stage fright talking, but knowing does little to make it go away. Just bear with me for a few days more.

In other news, the publisher of 'Lovers in Arms' is hosting a giveaway contest right now. Anyone who logs in with a new or existing account until July 1st will enter a drawing for a free ebook of their own choice. Accounts are free, so maybe you want to give it a shot at ForbiddenFiction.com.

Holy fuck, congrats!!!

Also: I got drunk the other night and read this post and had one of those "YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW I'M FEELING!!!" moments and maybe cried a little :D

Thanks, dear.

Re: start
Thanks so much! That is very kind of you to drop me a line and help me stop running around like a chicken when the fox is in the coop. Hope you enjoy my little story. *crosses fingers*
