Now, multiply the insanity by two. Hectic has been the norm for me for the past three weeks and I have three more to go. It's the wonderful price you pay for back-to-back releases.
What a wonderful experience! And now I have new friends and, even better, new readers!
In addition to the tour booked through Goddess Fish Promotions, I also scheduled five blog stops on my own. And, of course, there was also the added work of my personal blog with two weekly features of my own and two posts as a Goddess Fish host. Heaven knows...rest is for the weak and those without a book release.
All of that ... as crazy-fun as it was ... will dwarf in comparison to the next three weeks.
Monday, October 24th begins another two-week blog tour, this one requiring a guest post or interview for each of the 14 stops. The tour ends on Friday, November 4th. Needless to say, I plan to sleep the entire weekend of the 5th and 6th.
As busy as I've been with mega-promo, I still managed to do a final galley-read through on two upcoming books, one releasing in December and the other in January. Which means, of course, I'll need to schedule blog tours and begin on my media kit for both books. Oh, and somewhere in the middle of it all, there's a holiday or two to contend with.
Even with all this craziness going on, the one day I'm certain to celebrate is going to be Wednesday, November 1st. That just happens to be my 20th anniversary as a published author ... and it all began with a Precious Gem.
For my fellow authors ... may you 'suffer' the same insanity I have for these six weeks. For the readers ... please enjoy the fruits of all our labor and remember to write a review!
Until next time, stay happy, stay healthy, stay well read.
