And, seeing as I believe in asking for what you want, if anyone of you out there know people who works for book sellers, top wedding blogs or magazines for gals 25-35ish or know Lena Dunham and Leandra from Manrepeller – hook me up please.
Like every debut author I’d love to see this book get into the hands of many – especially all you ladies out there who have caught the wedding bug or wedding stress and are wondering if you’re alone! (You’re not, the stories we hear simply don’t always match up to our realities!)
And, if you are already reading it, a HUGE THANK YOU!
I’d love to hear what you think here in the comments or find me on twitter and instagram!
As the date to hitting PUBLISH and RELEASE on my first book, The Wedding Virus and Other Snippets, looms super near I must admit to vexing between super-excited and super-stressed. Having worked on enough projects and products launches I would think I’d be used to it.
Alas, no. All the roller coaster emotions are still here.
If I was writing in character she would probably write it like this:
Things That Cross Your Mind Pre-Book Release
“hey,” I phone my friend.
[insert how-are-you-type-question-answers until…]
“How’s book stuff going?”
“Oh, I’m all monkey-brain.
One minute I’m: Oh wow, I have a book coming out soon!
then: Oh f$%^ I have a book coming out soon!”
“But it’s true. Then I get distracted and wonder if it is too late to organize a launch party.”
“Oh, you so should have a launch party!”
“I know, but then I wonder where and who can make me teal-green-with-my-cover-heart-cupcakes? And if yes, what should I wear.
And then I wonder: What if noone wants to read it?”
“I’ll be reading it!”
“OK, so then What if lots of people want to read it?
Will they like it? Hate it?
And, wait for this, then my head does something super weird. I think if they like it what if they don’t like my second one, The Baby Epidemic?”
“hahah you’re killing me”
“Isn’t it crazy? I haven’t even finished writing it! It’s insane how my head works”
“Finally, I’ll go for a walk to take a break, just in time to bump into someone who says “Hey! I heard you have a book coming out”.”
laughing “C’mon darling, let’s meet for a drink”
On a related happy note I’m really enjoying finding fun images for instagram. Like the one above. I mean, who doesn’t love a car filled with balloons?!
If you’ve read this far I just wanted to say thank you for supporting me on my chick-lit-sprouting journey!
Looking forward to continuing this ride with you all!
Not only was it emerging for us, the gorgeous folks who joined us told us they had fun and it was a privilege to get them shifted and moving and yes, actually started on things they were holding themselves back from!
Heck they even tweeted about us!
Super excited and blessed to get to give these and help coach and teach people wisdom we’ve learned!
Bring on more!
Thanks to all those who came to our workshop for your warm acceptance and Yvonne from the Hive Conferece for having us!
