THE DJINN'S DILEMMA has been out a little over a month and I'm feeling like this:
Or rather that's what I want to be doing...until Jan. 1.
My first launch has been a thrilling rush and exhausting. Love, love, love having my story out and seeing the cover on Amazon, B & N and Goodreads.
I had a lot of fun tweeting, blogging, and getting interviewed, but I'm plumb tired. The two best things to come out of this experience:
1. I realized I'm truly blessed with wonderful friends, who support, encourage and sustain me.
2. Reader notes. I love to receive notes from people who read my story, to know that my writing touched other hearts.
However, now I'm ready to move on, ready to rest and rejuvenate. The third djinn book is like toddler demanding attention. I find myself wanting to shut out the world and spend some quality-time with this story...but I can't.
It's the holiday season and there's school programs to attend, a whirlwind of parties, getting the house ready for Christmas and travel. Taking deep breaths and reminding myself -- balance. Life is about balance.
So how do you find balance?
