After just a few months as an published author, I've learned some things. The learning curve, at times, was fast paced and exhilarating, much like a waterside on a hot, steamy day. At others times, well, it hasn't been so pleasant.
Debut author life is full of false starts and hesitations. Mostly you have no idea in hell what you're doing. You race across streets -- metaphorically speaking -- hoping you won't crash head first into someone's sedan.
