Reflections After Day 1 of My Book Launch

As I write this, it’s still the evening of the same day I launched my book, What’s at the End of Your Nose? but I’m feeling all sorts of things that may or may not confine themselves to the appropriate adjectives or descriptors.

Exhilarated. I’m finally living my dream. I’m also trying not to waste time thinking I should have done this long ago. “Should haves” don’t do anyone any good!

Vaguely exhausted. It seemed like every hour, I’d think of something else to do for my book. Which is great! So I’m feeling kind of a combo of having really done a lot today, but I’m happy about it.

Hopeful. Of course I want people to like it, even love it. This is my creation, and it’s been a long time coming.

Wheels turning. I’ve got my next book to proof and format to Amazon’s exact specifications, now that I know more about these rather excruciating constructs. I have two more books where I’ll need an illustrator, not to mention another book I’ve got out to agents right now. . .

Plans planning. What can I do for my book next? There can be no set it and forget it. It means too much.

You know how when you’re with someone new, or you have a new job, or anything that you really enjoy comes into your sphere of existence, suddenly it all fits into your busy life? That’s how I feel right now about being an author.

It should seem impossible, but it doesn’t. Somehow, it just all makes sense.

Have some music to enjoy with your day, and please do go check out my book on Amazon. The free Kindle promotion will be ending very soon! And it did. But! The Kindle version is waiting for you all the same! And the paperback doubles as a coloring book.
