So today I am juggling – stories that is.
I have a new book out next month that I need to promote.
I had a new book out last month that I’m still promoting.
I’m brain-storming a midwife series with three other medical authors, my story is due by end of May.
I have a Christmas story to write by end of June.
I have two books that I’ve just written (just sent back revisions on the second) based in Vietnam. Copy edits will be due on these two stories in the next few weeks.
Oh, and I’m currently writing my Young Adult Space story that is due end of April/beginning of May.
Then, of course, there’s the day job…. I still work full-time as a nurse in public health.
I also agreed to do a few school talks as part of the promotion for my YA story Rebel. I’ve already done a trip to Brighton where I got a gorgeous runner up award. Those kids were great and I was there with four other YA authors. The rest of the school visits? I’m on my own and feeling a bit scared already.
What if the kids hate me? What if I’m boring? What if they don’t read?
What if I can’t engage them? Can you feel the terror?
Anyway! Add to the list above – do a powerpoint presentation about dinosaurs for teenagers!
I have six school visits, one of which is down in England. I may be gone for sometime.
Okay, off to lie down now!
