Shame on me!

I haven't blogged in...well, too long. I've been in such a whirlwind, getting ready to announce to the world TWO releases in September, I haven't had time to do much of anything else. My publicist is helping as much as she can, but that doesn't mean I'm going to relax until sometime in October.

I've even had friends e-mail me to ask if I'm okay! Oh, dear. I didn't realize I was giving off whirling-dervish vibes. But all of this has taught me a couple of things. First, I need to work on balance. If I write during this flurry of promo activity...great! If I don't, I can't get all wound up about it. I'm used to writing every day. But nothing says I must.

The other thing I learned (again) is that I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I love my editor and I love not having deadlines. A friend of mine has a big looming deadline the same week as a book release! Holy smokes! I can't imagine the stress. So, thank you again e-publishing...for waiting until I'm ready with a product I'm proud of, instead of forcing a deadline upon me.

Wine Valley, Napa, baby!

Oops, sorry about that last one. I think I spent too much time at the tasting. Oh well, I'm tired and going to bed. Drinking makes me want to take a Nappa.

I'm baaaaack!

Just got back from San Francisco last night. You know how there's so much to do as soon you get back from vacation--and you're too exhausted to do it? Well, today I did some writing, took a nap that turned out to be about 3 hours of my life I'll never get back, then asked my husband if he'd rather have food in the frige or a clean house. He said, I can't have both? Yeah, in an alternate universe, maybe. But the man definitely thinks with his stomach and sent me off to shop. I was hoping for a maid to clean while I was gone, but I'll have to hint louder next time.

How was your day, honey?
