If you're an unpublished writer, are you ready to be published?
And if you are a published writer, were you ready to be published when the call came?
I've done a lot of soul searching over the past few months over whether or not I'm "ready" for this to happen. Honestly, I don't know how anyone can be completely, 100% ready for everything that is thrown their way when the publishing contract finally arrives. There are edits to make, marketing decisions to pour over, angst over reviews, publicity rounds, and of course, the whole writing the next book.
For me, I know at one point I wasn't ready. At all.
But now I think I am.
Let me modify that.
I am as ready as I'll ever be.
