Story time: I met Lee Child (of Jack Reacher Fame) the day my first book, Imminent Danger, came out. I loaned him a lighter and had a smoke outside the RWA banquet in Orlando. I was spazzed out because I was newly pub'd and he was very cool, amused. Gracious. Gave me the best advice: Enjoy it. Whether it's your 1st or your 31st. That feeling never, ever gets old. So I always take a moment to chill and enjoy my latest book in my hands. I'm at #14 & counting. I always make sure to remember Mr. Child and send him good juju to thank him for his kindness.
