My focus is going to be shifting this week from writing to promotion. I have to set up my Goodreads Giveaway, my Kindle Countdown Deal and coordinate with reviews.
Ottawa Romance Writers had a great meeting on Sunday. We had Laurie Cooper, the head of PubCraft, which offers a variety of packages ranging from virtual assistants to promotional packages. I'm going to send her an email to see how much it would cost to set up a blog tour this summer.
I've actually been struggling this week. One of those emotional roller-coaster deals where I'm convinced things aren't going to work out (even though I'm actually doing fairly well right now). Over a lifetime, I've learned that these feelings aren't reliable and shouldn't be given undue weight but it doesn't make them any more fun to go through. I can see similar signs in my son, so I've started teaching him about "tricky feelings" which try and trick you into seeing things a certain way (usually bad) when it's not really true.
I am very excited about Romancing the Capital this weekend. I won't be able to attend the Friday workshops during the day but I'll be there for the dinner and will be there all day Saturday. It should be a lot of fun.
