As in, where was I when I left off? Well.... in a place of conflicting emotions, ecstatic about finally becoming and author and frustrated with the minutiae of working out the kinks and navigating the publicity end of things.
Where am I now?
Same place, but with a whole new attitude. In a word, I'm grateful.
Despite the trauma and technical difficulties, the book is launched, and a lifelong goal accomplished. That's no small feat! The next goal is getting it noticed. After all, pursuing one's dream - running the race - is what we've been given our whole lifetimes to do. So, it doesn't matter how long it takes, or how many twists in the road, only that we keep running.
So far, I've had sales and great reader response. As I research and develop my marketing plan, I'm learning complex new skills and information. Yesterday was my first promo outing, and I met some lovely people and garnered space on some store shelves. Today, I'm writing to you and delving into the world of electronic publishing --- who'da thunk!? It's amazing how much better it feels to embrace and engage life instead of whining about it....
I hope you'll run along with me.
