Things are getting exciting around here. I've received the signed copy of my contract from OakTara and last night, I sent in my edited version of Misstep, along with my author picture and bio, dedication, and acknowledgments. I'm assuming they'll be in touch with lots of edits and changes (which I'll be happy to do!) and then ask for other things like cover ideas, endorsements, etc.
In the meantime, I need to continue with my marketing and promotion (which might be a little easier once I get a cover to use in those communications), as well as finishing up Faux Pas, the second book in The Road's End Series. While I've waited all my life for this opportunity, I'm afraid I feel like that poor, overused deer in the headlights. Where do I turn? What do I do first? Can I multitask to be more efficient, or are multitask and efficient an oxymoron? Do I schedule my time and stick to it or should I do things as they feel right or when I'm in the mood to do them?
This is as much a time for learning as it is a time for joy. I'm in unfamiliar territory, but thankfully I have the good team at OakTara, my agent, Terry Burns, my Burns siblings, and our Heavenly Father to guide me through this season of joy and confusion.
Until the next time...
