Today is Saturday. I did the invite thing on Facebook for the release on Tuesday, which is a scant 4 days away. I'm not kidding. I might throw up. Not even virtually, either. Spectacularly, and all over the living room. I realize this is only a virtual release and this does not bode well if there is ever a real, live one, as my husband helpfully (NOT!) keeps saying (can't he shut up already and take the kids for a drive or something?), but my stomach is quite flip-floppy.
I wonder if other authors have this same feeling in the days before their releases? When I did the online invite thing, of course, I screwed it up. First go through had it timed from 12am to 2am in the morning. What? I know, right? So, I figured out how to change it and made it start at 7am. Again, not thinking. I have kids and that's a school day. I am still ripping through the house and slinging Cheerios around at 7am, for God's sake....no way can I be on the computer at 7am. What was I thinking? Clearly, I wasn't. So, final time range has it at 9am till 1130pm. *Sigh* Better. And....breathe. Good.
Today I also ordered the bookmarks. Got some great advice from my new friends, fellow authors who turned me on to a great site called Next Day Flyers.com. Got a great deal of 1000 for under $56. I hope I am this enthusiastic when I pick them up. Yeah, isn't it great? They are located right here in LA, barely 20 minutes from my house. Saved myself $14 bucks in shipping.
I noticed I have a couple new followers, too. Neat! I still have no idea what I am doing on Facebook, but I will admit I am meeting some super neat people, authors mostly. I love that aspect of it. So, join me, my new friends, won't you, for my nerve-wracking countdown till the launch. Ready? Here we go!
