After two and a half years of writing, revising, submitting, revising again, then making the decision to become an 'indie' published author - it is time, today, to make Painting Lily available to the public.
And I feel myself breathing a deep inhale as I do so.
For this project has been near and dear to my heart for quite a long time. Going 'public' means opening it up to review. Some will be lovely and wonderful, and others, I fear, well, it's just part of the territory - others will decide to find fault with it. I want to prepare to revel in the former, and learn to let go of the latter.
On that note, I introduce to the world my two main characters, Lily and Leo. You may love them, despise them, cheer them on, or find fault. It's up to you. It's fiction. You may do as you wish.
I'm smiling now. I've enjoyed bringing them to life. Hopefully you will enjoy inviting them into your own.
