As a debut novelist this is both totally unexpected and gives me ALL the good feels.
I think all novelists have the same worries: that your book will be released and sink without a trace, that nobody will read it, like it, review it or even notice it. It comes with putting your work out into the public sphere, but I reckon it has to be worse with your first word-baby. Mostly, I just hope people will enjoy it.
Interesting times are ahead, and the game is afoot!
