Its happening, its happening, its happening, its happening!!!!!!!!!!! A week from mother f**kin’ tomorrow! Is it weird that I’ve never been so excited for something in my entire life? I mean, I’ve been equally excited in different ways before. But only when I had my kids, and with them I was so damn nervous and scared that my excitement was smothered in a way. A good way. Like I’m finally a grown up, and about to be responsible for a whole other human kind of way. Too many emotions to feel only excitement.
But right now, I feel only excitement and the wait is KILLING me!!
With my first book I was self conscious (and for good reason. I had no clue what the hell I was doing) My second book I was a tinsey bit more excited, but still a little scared about critique. Everyone’s a critic and I was, well how do you say it, soft? So even though I was excited about my second book, I was still too nervous to really advertise or put myself out there. With my third book Aggravated Momentum, I FINALLY felt complete as an author. I found my voice, and did a great job, thus I started to build my author platform and began to really tell people about my books.
NOW, the time has finally come for the exact project that I’ve been working at for nearly FIVE YEARS!!! I can’t believe its here! I’ve found my writing voice, I’ve worked my ass off on my content as well as author platform, I’ve surfaced my confidence, and I’ve produced one hell of a story if I do say so myself!! AND A WEEK FROM TOMORROW IT WILL BE RELEASED!!
*breath Didi, breath*
I’ve booked my blog tour, and I’ve given advanced readers copies to a few choice people who I trust both for the purpose of gifts and some for reviews. I’ve also been pushing the pre-order link in social media, yet I feel like I’m missing something. Kind of like when you’re headed out on a big trip and you’ve checked off your packing list a dozen times, yet you just know you’re forgetting something… Even though your not, but you’re worries are just being weird and out of wack. Maybe its the excruciating anticipation that’s making me feel like I should be doing more right now, who knows. Either way, every day I’m finding myself picking up silly projects to get my mind off the excitement as well as pacing the floors like a caged beast! This is bound to be the longest week of my entire life.
On the plus side, my editor said its one of her favorite manuscripts she’s ever checked. Also, I’ve received my first two reviews on Goodreads and they’re both FIVE STARS!!
*breath, Didi, breath again*
One of them says, “This is the best thriller I have read all year! Hands down, I was turning pages like crazy waiting on my heart to jump out of my chest!”
And the other says, “I give this book 5+ stars out of 5! This is one of best books I have read if not the best. I really enjoy cold case stories and the process of how it’s solved. This book had me turning pages like crazy I finished it in less than 2 days!!!”
EXCITING RIGHT?! Now you know why I’ve chewed my nails until my fingertips are nubs! I can’t wait until next Friday!!!
So yeah, if you follow my blog then please pre-order this book. I can’t wait to see what you all think of it!!! As long as I don’t die from excited anticipation between now and then, that is.
