A mother knows that eventually she has to let her children go, in order for them to blossom into the wonderful people that she always hoped that they would be. And so, at some point, an author has to let a book go. Stop with the rewrites. No more obsessing. Put it out there to be enjoyed, disliked, ignored or praised. Whatever. It is done.
And so as of September 1, I declared to myself that y1 was finished. It is now available here at amazon.com. Please check it out! Any further obsessing will be done here on my blog instead :).
