My fourth book will be out in one more week. Eight days, give or take. A few years ago, I would have been very surprised to think I could have four books published. So what am I doing? Making lists.
Website updated. Check.
Press releases sent out. Check.
Several reviews on their way. Check.
Coordinating booksignings. Check.
And most importantly:
Writing a new book. Check.
In fact, I wrote 2,300 words today in my new series, and I feel like I'm back to my old self. Just writing for the fun of it. The first draft is the best. After that, it's all work (but still has its highlights).
It will be exciting to see my new book on the shelves. I'll be calling the bookstores every day and asking if it's in yet (this is old news to them). Then I'll be rushing over to buy a copy. Yes, I get some author copies from my publisher, but there's nothing cooler than buying a book that YOU wrote. Well, at least the first time it comes out. After that, it's just another promotional expense.
I'll post the reviews here as they trickle in, so you won't have to wait in suspense.
Meanwhile, back to writing.
