Wow, what crazy few weeks I've had. There was family over, and snow, and winter holidays with the kids...oh, and a minor event of my book being released on December 26th.
So what does a debut author do on the day that her book releases?
Well, have a debauchery-filled party, complete with gnomes, champagne, Senators in pink wigs, and lots of wild turkeys running around, of course! Also visiting every bookstore in a 100 mile radius and taking tongue-wagging photos next to them and asking strangers to buy them!
Yes. I'm kidding.
Being the day after Christmas, I opted to hang out with my family and parents. I did have some champagne. :) But I didn't even visit a bookstore, because honestly? I was so nervous about it! So I sent my hubby and Dad. And they verified that yes, my book was in the bookstore. and Yes, people were actually buying it.
A few days later, I went in to the Bookworm (our local Indie) to sign a few books I'd promised to those that had preordered, and I saw this:
So now it's January, and I should be super relaxed right?
Well, erm, no. I actually have a huge revision deadline by the end of the month and it's been a lot of work. So I'll be blogging sporadically and doing a few posts over at the League of Extraordinary Writers. But if you see me in person and I look like I'm still in my pajamas, you'll know why.
Here are some events coming up, in case you're in Omaha:
Launch/signing/party at the Bookworm on January 18th between 2-5 PM. I'd love to see you there!
Poetry reading and book selling/signing at the Slowdown on January 21st at 7 PM for the Seven Doctors Projects.
Book reading and selling/signing at Metropolitan Community College, January 30th at 7 PM.
Have a great January, guys! And thank you again for your support with CONTROL!
