The Countdown Begins…7 days until release day
In honor of my debut releasing in 7 days, I’m offering a $15 GC from either Amazon, B&N, MuseItUp, or Book Depository on my release day. Follow my posts for the next seven days. On each day, they will be themed. Just tell me what all 7 seven themes were during the week and on my actual release day just write them in the comment section. Easy peasy. Good luck!
The official countdown has begun. Only 7 days until my debut releases from MuseItUp Publishing. I’m excited but I’m not. Depression has set in for this debut author. I’m so proud of this story and to finally have it published. My editor Lea (who is also the publisher) has been my biggest supporter, cheerleader and all around “I could kiss you right now” when I pitched the story, accepted the contract, went through edits and final galleys. She soothes my nerves, answered my questions and put me at ease. If you are looking for a publisher, I highly recommend MuseItUp.
Here’s where the depression sets in…I just can’t muster up the excitement. Christmas is 4 days away and we have no presents. We don’t even have a clue what we are buying. Husband has to work this weekend and oh yes, he works on Christmas Eve. When he leaves work on Christmas Eve, we have a 5 hour drive to the in-laws. Can you tell I’m beyond excited about it? I love my in-laws, I truly do and we have a good time but just once, I would like Christmas at our house. Our son hasn’t experienced going to Christmas Eve services at our church much less anywhere else, leaving milk and cookies out for Santa or leaving a piece of cheese for Santa Mouse. I would like to share MY traditions with our son. I would like our son to wake us up in our house on Christmas morning. Knowing that on Christmas morning, we are faced with ripping opening presents, rushing to get ready because people will start showing up before 11 am to have Christmas lunch. Just once, I would like to stay in last year’s pj’s that I got for Christmas and be lazy. *sigh*
I can honestly tell you that I don’t have a clue if I will be at my house on release day or my in-laws. Nice, I know. Plus, I have 5 books to read, review and post on the review blog before I go since I don’t know when we are going to be back. Oh, the laptop goes with me but when will I honestly have time to really work on anything. Overwhelming would describe my life now and hence why I just can’t get excited about my release. I wish I could sit in front of my computer in a week with a cup of coffee in the morning and see my debut released, at my house and then have hub’s take me to lunch and then wine later in the evening. But I’m sure we will probably be on the damn highway trying to get home.
Please don’t get me wrong…I’m still pinching myself about my AWESOME debut, just wish I could pinch myself into some excitement.
