Well, it’s been a long, long held dream of mine to have a book published and finally it’s happening this week. You’d think that I’d be bursting with excitement and enthusiasm, but actually, I’m more nervous than anything else. Will people like it? Will it be reviewed positively? Will it be reviewed at all? You’d think that someone as thin-skinned as me would have considered the idea that if you publish a book people might, y’know, read it – but no, I didn’t really think this one through.
But as people keep saying to me, I’ve done the hard part. Now I just need to sit back and see what happens – satisfied that I’ve done my best and leave the rest up to the universe. Or something.
Except, these days being a writer also means being a promoter, a marketer and a saleswoman. So, I’m writing emails, looking for events and telling people what’s good about this book when really I just want to say, “read it. It’s pretty good”.
Over the next couple of days I’ll be putting up details of events I’m doing and some blogs that I’m writing for and I’d love it if you’d take the time to read my book when it’s out.
It’s actually pretty good.
