Wednesday Words: It's almost done, I'm scared

What's my WIP?
Putting the finishing touches on Reveal

My first novel, is almost finished and to be honest, I couldn't be happier. It's the best writing I could have done, I think I cover the subject well, while still remaining true to my story line.
So right now I am sitting in my pajamas putting the finishing touches on my ARCs which go out to my amazing bloggers and betas in just a few days. I am also freaking out. I mean totally losing my mind. I'm so nervous that you all are going to hate my book. Or maybe not hate, but at least you might not like it. And if you don't what is going to happen to me and my writing?
I don't know if everyone has these posts, or if most authors don't share their fears with you, the readers, but here it is. I'm giving you a pure glimpse into my soul here, I'm scared and I'm not afraid to say it. So what now? What do I do to get over my fear of rejection?
As my mom would say, "Buck up!" That's all I can do. I'm proud of my work and even if you despise it, you have to give me props for trying. Also, I keep writing to get better at it. My next book is in a totally different genre and I love where it's going just as much as Cryptid Tales. I work towards being a better author every day. And I love it, I absolutely love being an author and it's all I want to do for the rest of my life.
So it's time to get over my fear and start selling books.
Wish me luck,
