Before Diamond Geezer came out, I was incredibly busy. In fact, the launch was even more hectic than I had originally planned, because Amazon released the book a day early! As a result, I had to revamp the launch plans right at the last second. Talk about wild!
But now what do I do?!
It’s been fascinating to watch the sales roll in, but I also feel like my baby has flown out of the nest. It’s like watching your kids go off to school and realising that they don’t need you as much anymore. Now that all of the Diamond Geezer work is done, I feel a little lost. I keep asking myself what I should do with all of the extra time.
Sure, there are plenty of things I SHOULD be doing (like getting started on my third book!), but I’m finding it hard to concentrate on anything else!
Part of the problem has been all of the excitement. Like I mentioned last week, I can’t believe my dream of becoming an author is really coming true. I’ve spent days pinching myself, because it’s almost impossible to comprehend! I think I just need some time for all of this to sink in before I’m ready to work on anything else.
In an effort to bring myself back down to earth, I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few days going on walks. My dog, Dylan, loves it! I’m afraid he’s going to be a tad disappointed when he realises that the extra walks are only temporary, though. After all, Mummy has to get back to work soon!
