Publishing Jitters


One toe left
To count the times
I’ve been at the edge
Weeks of fretting
Months of toiling
Years of forging
Wearing body to the bone
The twentieth click
After hours of needling
Hitting that infamous word
That I have seen so often
Yet always scared
Of the new unknown

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
