So, see that countdown widget over to the left? It's ticking down. I remember when it said 300. That was so long ago! And now, Control is nearly ready to be out in the world in only three more days. It's a pretty nerve-wracking feeling. It's exciting and scary and weird all at the same time. So many emotions I didn't expect!
It's been a crazy week so far. I did a fun radio interview for Mom Talk Radio that will air soon, as well as an interview for the Omaha World Herald that will publish in January. Mochi Mag highlighted my book on their site this week along with Amy Tan (not bad company!) and my interview came out online for Omaha Magazine. I revealed my book trailer! Control hit 10,000 add-ons on Goodreads. I'd never thought I'd see this either--a vlog review of my book. That was pretty cool! Thank you Juhina from Maji Bookshelf for the review!
And on top of all that, I'm knee deep in the middle of revisions for Control's sequel (tentatively titled CODE, though recently it was CATALYST. And that may change again too.) Actually, this is why I'm awake past midnight. No rest for the weary when it comes to a revision deadline. Ack!
This week is going to be about spending time with my family and really enjoying the holidays in the midst of launching my book. I'll be taking a break from revising, too. I plan on a lot of yoga breaks to relax, if necessary! See this pose? It's called the Scorpion pose.
|Not sure if people were meant to have their toes massage their own scalps, but I digress.|
But I just thought I'd think of that pose, and see if it relaxed me. Yeah. Well, if that doesn't work, I may do a down-dog that turns into a face-planting belly snooze. Now THAT will definitely lower my blood pressure. ;)
What about you? Are you surviving the holiday season? Does staring at that picture make your back ache too?
