My “Word of the Day” on Tuesday was OVERWHELMED. My target release date for the 1st installment of my Living Between Dreams series was fast approaching, and everything that I didn’t know about publishing was on my “To Do” list.
The list didn’t get shorter as the day went on, instead it got more and more overwhelming. My eyes glazed over and my brain numbed, and by Wednesday I was fully paralyzed by the amount of work and the steep learning curve I needed to finish that work.
This was trumped by the shocked and humbled feeling I felt on Wednesday after receiving an email from my editor. But I digress.
Since Wednesday, some of my overwhelmed feeling has been replaced with knowledge and resolve. My To-Do list has gotten even longer, but at least I know where to go with some of these tasks.
Then she said she sends her Bookfunnel email to her team of ARC reviewers. *Sigh.* I have no ARC reviewers. This also reminded me that I need to work on my Author Platform. Cue the Mailchimp! (Another thing I don’t understand, but you’ll see me try it soon!)
The other three questions, I’ll save for a later day. I have enough on my plate for this weekend. Cue the melodramatic swooning music!
