I think Jess may have overslept, so I figured I’d fill the void with a few thoughts. A friend wrote me on Facebook to tell me she was surprised to find my debut, Crossing Oceans, on the shelves of Books a Million.

I was surprised too. The release date is May 1st and though I was told it might be out a little sooner, I didn’t expect it this soon.

It feels a little like being pregnant and having the baby come three weeks early. The crib’s not even set up. Oh why didn’t I buy diapers. I have so much left to do. . .

If there are any other Crossing Oceans spottings, please share them with me. It’s exciting and scary and remember, I’m a first-time mom. You know how we are.
