I'm really looking forward to the signing today. For me, this moment won't be about how many people show up or how many books I may or may not sign. It's about what signing at a Barnes & freaking Noble symbolizes. It's about all those times I stood in that store or other bookstores or libraries, found the YA section and alphabetically where my book would be placed, and envisioned that someday... someday I would have a book on those shelves.
Today will symbolize that journey; all the hard work, the years of blind faith, determination, and desire it took to get there. All the rejection letters and the close calls, the nos and the Hell nos. This moment will symbolize the YES! I mean the HELL YES!!!!
