Just a little teaser…all of the items in this picture have something to do with the plot of Matched. 🙂
ARCs are circulating now (and there will be more after BEA later this month), so there are some reviews and spoilers going up, and people have asked me if I’m nervous about that. The answer is, “Of course.” As an author, I tend to be very protective of the plot. I want people to know the story as it unfolds, not beforehand, if that makes sense. However, as a reader, you also want to know what you’re getting into when you pick up a book! So it’s a very fine line.
But I can’t control the reviews, or the spoilers, or really any of it, so I have to (try) to let go.
It is SO hard to let go of a book. I sent off the last pass through the galleys last week and my husband almost had to pry those pages out of my deathgrip. But at some point, I have to say, “This is the very best I could do, it is not perfect, it will never be perfect, but it’s time to let go. It’s time for this book to belong not just to me, but to the readers. And time for me to move on to something else.”
Like writing the sequel. Eeep.
