…that people are about to read your book. If they want to. That people will open your book to the first page and start with the first sentence, and hopefully go on from there, and you can’t keep it close anymore, this book you wrote that started as a story for you and you only, this piece of writing you’ve loved and labored over, this piece of you. It’s too late now to delay showing people because you’re shy. No more excuses. It’s out. In the world. Where people who know how to read books can go get it.
