Holy Tuna!

Sophie & Carter is now available on Kindle!

I can't explain how surreal this is for me.  I've spent the last several years living in front of my Kindle, night after night, downloading new works of fiction for my brain to get lost in before I fall asleep.  I never imagined my own book would someday be in the Kindle store.

So, I feel triumphant in this.  Even if no one reads my Kindle book, I still feel triumphant. Because it's there, sitting on Amazon's electronic shelf, like it's worth reading.  And I've never been so proud.  Or terrified.

Proud, because I did something I didn't think I could do.

And terrified, because the only thought that keeps running through my head is, "Holy mackerel!  What did I just do?  I am a lunatic.  What if everyone hates it?  What if I suck?  I probably suck.  I probably suck and should never, ever try and write again.  And also, I really need to put away the pile of laundry that's been sitting on my couch for two days."

Okay, that last part, about the laundry, has nothing to do with Sophie & Carter-- but it still plagues my thoughts!  (By the way, the saying "holy mackerel" is weird, don't you think?  I might as well say, "Holy Catfish!" or "Holy Tuna!"...right?")

That's it.  It's official.  From now on I will be saying, "Holy Tuna!" at every possible opportunity.

So, anyway...here's to my book being on Kindle...

...And to laundry that folds itself.

    Someone DID buy your kindle edition book, and it IS worth reading! Finished it today as predicted. :) it was very entertaining and I wanted to know even more about Sophie & Carter. Can hardly wait for another book that's not about vampires, werewolves, fairies or zombies. :)

    Oh Chelsea one day you will realize how truly awesome you are! I read the book last night on my little iphone because I HAD to read it and I didn't want to wait any longer. What an amazing story. One that I foresee as an amazing movie one day??? Just think about that, it could totally be possible. Love you Chelsea!

  1. If the book is half as good as your blogs, I'm in!

    I could read "The Adventures of Chelsea" every day...so funny!
