An Exciting Week!
I'm getting excited! This Friday is the book reading/signing for my newest release, Perfectly Good Nanny. I sent out postcards to locals, sent an article to the local paper (which I haven't seen or heard back from anyone). My biggest fear is that my signing won't get the coverage I'd like because there is a big literary weekend going on here this weekend and my little book signing will get lost in the coverage of that event. I am on the Good Morning Central Oregon show on Thursday morning. The host of that show is a great supporter of authors.
I was at a meeting with one of my friends and readers on Saturday and she asked, "Are you excited about next Friday? I am!" She can't wait to get the next book. Those are the comments that make this writing gig so worthwhile. To have people waiting for the next book. And that's why I beat myself up to get another book out there.
My editor and I have been passing the next Petticoat book back and forth trying to make it bigger and better. I really would like to have it out in print by May of 2008. My goal is to have a new book out every 6 months, but we'll see if I can keep up the pace as other things pull on my time.
What is the longest you've waited for the next book to come out from an author? If it's someone you like, does the wait matter? Or if it's too long do you forget about them?
