Weekly Update: April 5 to 11

Word count: 8200

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.
