Seeing Red

Last week, I did something that is both exhilarating and terrifying. I sent an email to my publisher. My completed manuscript was attached.
For an author, releasing a manuscript yields mixed emotions. There is relief in the completion and apprehension over quality.
'Are readers going to like it?'
That is what I keep asking myself.
As my publisher and editor carefully comb over my manuscript, I will be doing the same with my red Sharpie in-hand. There may be a shortage of red ink in the Tri-Cities!
Oooooh, this process makes me cringe!
