I know people say launching a book is like having a baby but to me it feels more like the day you drop your child off on the first day of kindergarten. You've spent all this time getting them ready and trying to be sure they have everything they need and then you send them off to the great unknown. What ‘s going to happen? Will they be okay? Will people like them and be nice to them? It's nerve wracking. I cried when I dropped my kids off at school for the first time. I'm not going to cry about launching the book but I am nervous.
Will people like it? Will they love the characters? Will it speak to them? Sigh. See a lot like kindergarten. I haven't lost as much sleep because of Crushing as I did with Breathe so I guess that's an improvement and I woke up this morning to the first review on Good Reads and Amazon. She gave it 5 stars. Somebody liked it. Somebody that wasn't related to me or a friend. Whew!
I can calm down now. In the end, the people who like it will like it and the people who don't, won't. It will all be fine. This is why I have a party to get the whole thing started. It needs to be fun so I don't spend the whole day worrying. And anybody who knows me knows I will use any excuse to throw a party! So come join me at noon today on Facebook here. There will be prizes! Good ones! I'm giving away Starbucks stuff, Gift cards from Amazon and Starbucks, a cool beach bag with beachy stuff in it and books so don't miss out!
