Ok, I admit it — I’ve been a bit distracted lately. No Tuesday Traditions with guest writers (although I hope to have one next week), sporadic postings about random thoughts…but can you blame me? I have a book coming out in two and a half weeks. And not just any book – my DEBUT novel.
Every time I check the calendar and see that I’m a day closer to Armed With Steele‘s release day (AUGUST 5TH–you have that marked on every calendar in sight at your house too, right??) I want to start dancing. Then I get the urge to run. Then I have to stop and drag in repeated deep breaths to avoid hyperventilating. The good news is, I run instead of dance (I can’t dance) and that’s helped me stay on track with my 5K training. The bad news is:
It’s not August 5th yet.
And as much as I hate to say it, that’s probably a good thing. I still have blog posts to write and plans to make. And this is where I need your help. One of my wonderful writing friends asked last weekend how I planned to spend my release day.
“Are you doing anything to celebrate?”
Celebrate? Heck, I’ve been doing that in my mind since the contract was signed. But now that my dream is about to become a reality, I have no idea how I’d like to celebrate this milestone.
So, I’m asking you, my wonderful online friends: How do you suggest I celebrate my release of Armed with Steele?
