Whew, my goodness!
When I talk to my author friends, sometimes we agree and other times we don't on whether they get nervous when a new book is slated to release. Well, let me tell you this, honey. No matter how many times I've done it, I am a nervous wreck whenever the release date draws nigh.
This one is even more nerve-wracking because it's the start of a new series, the introduction of a new family. Sweet baby Jesus!! My stomach is already tying into knots. I'm having a hard time concentrating. I am completely preoccupied and fretting. And I don't have time for any of that because I need to be working on book 2!!
So, in an effort to get me together, I do all the deep breathing exercises, meditation, positive self-talk like, Okay Celeste, get yourself together girl. I'm not sure it's helping though. Anyway, I just needed to vent some of this nervous energy. I poured my heart into this new family and I hope you all feel it when you read it. The book drops January 28th, this Thursday. I am going to do my best to work around the nervousness. Ya'll pray my strength!
