Are we having fun yet?

If you haven't already submitted your entries for the "My CREEP is bigger than your CREEP" contest, you have until Thursday at midnight. I have two ARCs to give away and one of them could be yours!  Check back here Friday for the winners.

I'm starting to get excited for my trip to New York this July, where I'll be attending ThrillerFest VI.  I might be on a panel, and it also looks like I'll be signing copies of CREEP, which will be part of the attendees' gift bags.  It's freaking exciting but also kind of anxiety-inducing as well.  I'm a naturally shy person, and I'm a much better writer than I am a speaker.  And you know what my biggest fear is?

That nobody will care what I have to say.

There, I said it. 

I know.  I need to get over myself.  I need to get out of my own damned way and just have fun with this.  Because writing books is fun, no matter how much we stress, no matter how much we bitch, no matter how much we hate rejection.  It's still fun.

Because nobody in their right mind would do this if it wasn't.

Are you having fun?
