Luckily, I’ve been too busy online promoting the book to think about upcoming face to face promotion. And to fret about it, which kind of blows because the stress weight loss would have done me good.
Anyway, here it is, where it all begins. I have two readings/meet and greets/signings this week alone.
And for the first time it’s occurred t i me that for ten + years I’ve been in hiding, well, not exactly hiding, but not promoting other than online,
online, and in other people’s books where showing my face wasn’t a requirement.
And I’m excited, I really am. Interacting, reading, signing. Easy peasy. You’ll find that after a cocktail or two I’m a real people person.
But what to wear? What about my hair? What if I’m not what everyone expected?
I guess it’s the literary equivalent to stage fright, and something I’ll have to get over rather quickly because in three days I’ll have my first appearance.
I joked about practicing my signature, and I really should have because my handwriting is rather shitty.
And reading, I haven’t selected a story and haven’t read anything a loud since before my kids could read themselves.
Damn… ill prepared much?
Either way, see you (and me) there.
