To have a little bit of a SQUEE even though everyone's in bed?

I had a good old scream on Facebook, but everyone's in bed. And I can't really phone anyone up, because, in bed. But it was really ever so exciting, sitting there clicking the links and they were going 'Live... Live... Download now... Click here to download.'

And it was a lot more of a Moment than I thought it would be, really. It's been a tiresome week, what with having cellulitis and stressing about the mess the house is in, and I'd almost forgotten, but not quite.
My book is out, and someone, somewhere, might already have bought it and be reading it. And it might be someone I don't even know.

Your own book?

I'm suitably impressed smile

My house is a mess too you know, & I'm always glad to read a good book.

Congratulations on your book! Is it a book book or a scary academic book?
I'm squeeeing too..I have a carefully hidden MilkyWay bar and endless minutes to Mumsnet. My oldest daughter was physically assaulted by her paternal grandmother on Wedsnesday, so this week has been one of rage, dispair and overwhelming braveness on the part of my dd...

Despair even..GAH!

Oh Secretswitch, your poor DD and poor you!

Erm, the book is a rude one. Not sure if I will get my hands smacked by MNHQ if I link.

but I'll chance it

I have just purchased the kindle edition.

I shall let you know what I think once I've read it.

I'm looking forward to the 'rude' bits grin

Agghghhhhhh - I can't buy it, as it is available "only to UK customers".

I would love to read it!

PoppyWearer Sat 31-Aug-13 03:27:24

Squeeeeeee as much as you like! Well done you!!!

Secretswitch Sat 31-Aug-13 03:27:38

Wheeee...I'm getting it for my kindle! I need some fantasy escape in my life!
Thank you for your support SGB...that domestic violence has happened to my lovely 14 year old daughter is more soul rending than I can say.

SolidGoldBrass Sat 31-Aug-13 03:36:14

Spamm, whereabouts are you? I did find a link to the Australian site if that's any good and there may be a link to US-friendly downloads.

And Wanda and SS grin thanks for buying. I really should get some sleep now (but am actually probably going to go and squeal on Twitter as well...)

No.... will sleeeeeeeep....

spamm Sat 31-Aug-13 03:40:17

I am in the US and I would normally use my kindle, but happy to read it on my iPad (yes, I am a gadget nerd!).

Well done, SGB - I am so impressed. You are right to feel proud!

You are a published author! thanks

SusuwatariToes Sat 31-Aug-13 03:51:43

thanks congratulations

GeraldineAubergine Sat 31-Aug-13 03:53:40

I am going to read your book and put some reality to your kick ass persona. I am a big prude though, will it shock me.

prissyenglisharriviste Sat 31-Aug-13 04:08:42

Yes, it will. But if you get too shocked, remember she's also a morris dancer. I find that helps to balance the scary grin

Congrats sgb!

EhricLovesTeamQhuay Sat 31-Aug-13 04:20:34

Well done! Have you got a physical copy yet? How exciting. I will buy a copy too. Are you really a Morris dancer? grin

Hissy Sat 31-Aug-13 09:18:17

Huge congrats Solid! Bloody well done!

Squee away! You deserve to!

Dackyduddles Sat 31-Aug-13 09:21:47

Ooooh can I say I now know a famous author? Well done. Am well jel.

changeforthebetter Sat 31-Aug-13 09:26:31

Wow! Impressed SGB!

A rude book by someone who doesn't hold or condone misogynistic views smile I've read a couple of supposed erotic lit books for women and they were awful - demeaning and debasing hmm

Congrats! If I was a proper published author I'd be squeeing nonstop.

LookingThroughTheFog Sat 31-Aug-13 09:52:27

Congratulations, Brass!

OPeaches Sat 31-Aug-13 09:54:03

Swinging dominatrix Morris dancing author?

I'm intrigued. Going to buy it for my kindle grin
