Summer's here! After the L.A. Times Festival of Books and RT Booklovers Convention in Vegas this past April, the next two months will be my busiest time of year. Here's what's coming up...
2. A blog tour, guest posts, and lots of fun stuff for the launch
3. My first live reading at Lady Jane's Salon OC at The Ripped Bodice bookstore on July 10
4. Attending the RWA National Conference in San Diego from July 13 to July 16
5. Starting edits on Hollywood Honkytonk, the sequel to last year's Deep Down (Sam's kid brother Jack, all grown up...can't wait!)
To be sure, I'm fascinated by the business aspect of this profession. I'm surrounded by savvy marketers, authors and mentors who give me great advice. But I do get overwhelmed. And I get a little disheartened when things don't turn out the way I'd hoped, like learning a publisher I loved and signed with will be closing very soon.
Certainly, there are times when I'd like to take a breather.
So let's take a moment, shall we?
Give a listen to Waylon Jennings singing "Stop the World and Let Me Off."
(Lawd, I love me some Waylon Jennings.)
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Okay. Breather over. Back to work!
Enjoy the rest of your week, everyone.
