I came home from work this past Thursday to find boxes waiting for me on my bed. 50 copies of Phoenix Rising were staring at me when I opened them. There are no words to describe the thrill that overpowered me at that moment. A year ago if you had told me I would be a published author, I would have laughed at the notion. Who knew? So much has happened in such a short period of time. It’s been an incredible journey and it’s truly just getting started.
Sitting here, I find myself surrounded by boxes full of swag goodies and books and things I’ll need for TNEE. Wondering how all of this stuff is supposed to fit in the one suitcase I have allotted to ‘book stuff’. I know that’s not going to happen. I am glad however, that I decided to rent a car and drive the 8-ish hours instead of fly, because there is no way I could manage all my stuff on a plane and try to maneuver through a terminal by myself. Oh yeah, and then there are my clothes. I haven’t even gotten that far yet.
I picked up the last of the items on my list and (hopefully) I should be ready for my debut book signing in Atlanta. Am I nervous? Hell, yeah. Am I excited? You have no idea. This is a big deal for me and I can’t wait to get there.
I’ve been trying to work on my second book, Eternal Embrace (maybe a working title, maybe not.) 😉 I’ve made some major revisions. I still have a long way to go before it’s anywhere close to finished. But I’ve got a handle on it now and once I come back from Atlanta, I’ll be able to devote all of my energy to completing it. I’m hoping to have it ready for the beta readers by September. At least that’s sort of the plan.
For now, I’m scratching things off of my list and revising them. Back to the lists….
Till next week,
