AAAAAAAAH.

Today (tomorrow back on the other side of the dateline) my first professionally published short story is coming out from Daily Science Fiction! 

....AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

The story will go out first this Friday, the 14th, via e-mail to their subscriber list (if you want to get to read the story in your inbox before the rest of the web gets the privilege, an e-mail subscription is free), then it will go up on the website itself to be viewed by the rest of the world on the following week, the 21st. At the end of the month they collect all the stories into a kindle digest, so if you feel an uncontrollable urge to purchase some pixels, that's where and when.

I am excited and terrified in equal parts. I fear the facebook.

I'm glad! The facebook comment was noted and very much appreciated, believe me. (Especially the bit where you said you weren't sure about the narration at first, weirdly. I'm one of those people who can't handle uncut compliments. A little bit of criticism mixed in makes me go "oh, phew, so they aren't just being nice! They MEAN it!")

...The e-mail Daily SF sent me to let me know when the story was going up told me to "try not to take the facebook comments or rating too seriously." I wonder if telling that to a first time author has ever actually WORKED...

I know exactly what you mean.

The worst review comment: "It's terrible, I hated it!"
The second worst review comment: "It's wonderful, I loved it!"

C'est la vie.
