It’s been a big week and I have another coming up…
Last week was the release of book 2 of my young adult fantasy…. So shiny…so pretty… The Warrior Queen
This week is the release of Behind the Mask…soo shiny…soo steamy
It’s so easy to get ‘caught-up’ in the release stuff that you …well I…don’t write.
I mean there are facebook take overs, there is Instagram, there is Amazon and GoodReads…the list goes on of the things that you need to do to promote your book.
And I don’t want to write. I just want to bask in the ‘I’ve-made-it-let-eat-my-calorie-free-doughnuts’ (I do think doughnuts are calorie free on release day). And after all the nerve/anxiety ‘stuff’, I’m not sure I want to submit another book.
So I need fit amped up promo stuff into my already overwhelming schedule. I need to look at my ‘goals’ and decide what is going to shift – for at least a few weeks – to allow the promo to step up.
There’s laundry. Clean clothes is that really a necessary thing? Yes. It’s one of my big things. Have to have clean clothes.
There’s grocery shopping. Yes we need to eat (the discovery of food prep has saved my butt so many times).
What usually takes the hit is housecleaning… I can live with a dust for a week.
When looking over your schedule what get’s cut to make room?
I started a new book last week… I know and here I didn’t want to write…It’s called Loyalty. It’s along the Urban fiction lines. Here is the elevator pitch…
It’s a question of Loyalty. Does Layla give it the man who she had loved since high school but the street has made into a stranger? Or does she give to the new man who holds her broken and damaged heart?
I also pitched 2…yes ((2)) VA jobs.
