I have officially reached the OMG-release-is-three-days-away-I-still-have-so-much-to-do!!! frenzy.
What is it about big events in your life that no matter how carefully you plan your time, no matter how much attention you pay to detail, everything still manages to spin out of control? In my case, it’s inevitably a matter of underestimating the impact the rest of my life will have on my plans…I mean, really, people still expect me to run a house, drive them places, keep appointments, and remember to do things like pay bills?!?
Despite my current somewhat frazzled state, however, I have managed to pull myself together at least a little bit. The blog tour is up and running (with many thanks to Parajunkee for getting it that way and keeping me on track), and I’ll hand in the last of my guest posts for that next week. Woot! 🙂 (You can check out today’s stop at I Smell Sheep — be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a copy of Sins of the Son and this.)
Work continues on my new website, but it’s taking longer than I’d hoped and it doesn’t look like it will make it up onto the Internet in time for release. I can’t complain, however, because it’s coming along great, it’s being done for me for free, and it will be amazing once finished. 🙂
On other fronts, I’m working on book 3, doing a massive mail-out campaign to promote both Sins of the Angels and Sins of the Son, scheduling signings (so far just in Ottawa, but Toronto and Montreal are both on my list as well), getting a start on some much needed yard work (so I can plant my garden on time for a change), occasionally remembering to buy groceries, and just generally trying to follow the advice of Dory from Finding Nemo to “keep on swimming.” 😀
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and happy swimming in your own ponds!
