I totally promise I’m not dead, though sometimes it totally feels like it.
The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind and it’s so hard to be able to keep on top of everything that needs to be done. I honestly don’t know how so-called “social media moguls” keep up with it all. Trying to maintain a presence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and my blog has been nothing short of exhausting.
The biggest thing has, obviously, been getting my book ready for publication. The final deadline for my manuscript submission was this past Friday. I pretty much worked right up until the deadline in an effort to make everything perfect. Once the deadline hit, I was locked out from editing.
Sounds harsh but honestly they are saving me from myself. I would have spent every waking hour right up until publication altering things. This has been my baby for the last ten years so I’m very paranoid about the final product. I’m sure there’s still a mistake here and there but no one is perfect.
I’ll likely still alter things as I find weird mistakes. That’s the perk of the e-book anyway. Anything I change will go straight to anyone who has purchased it. As for the print book… just consider it a limited edition!
Outside of working feverishly on getting my book ready for its Tuesday birth, so much has been going on in my work life. I’m not going to go into detail at the moment because there are still some moving pieces in play. I’ll surely get an update to the world at some point.
For now, I’m trying to keep myself calm about the release of “You’re Doing It Wrong.” I’m so damn scared and excited and just feeling all of the emotions. I’m trying really hard not to think about it since it’s in the universe’s hands now. It’s not stopping me. That perpetual pit of nerves and despair is going to live inside of me for a while.
I do have a plan to somewhat distract myself on Tuesday. Ashley-Michelle, Kevin and I are going to breakfast at one of my favorite restaurants on Disney Property followed by spending some time at the Magic Kingdom. I’ll be able to look at sales and whatnot but only on my phone. I’m sure I’ll do a few posts here and there to get the word out but I’m going to try and not think too much about how freaked out I am.
My birthday is the following day on the 15th and I don’t have a clue what the plan is. We had a plan at some point but who knows. I just want to enjoy the day. Birthdays have just become another day for me so it’s hard to get too crazy about it.
That’s all from me for now!
