Sept 2

I've had several new promo opportunities show up in my in box. Unfortunately I haven't been able to take advantage of all of them. (Is my perfectionism showing? lol) There are only so many hours in the day and some of those should be spent with your family and friends. Balance is the hardest thing for me and something I am constantly working on. Learning how to pick and choose- whether that is book ideas, agents, promo opportunities- is important. Unfortunately I tend to want to choose it all- like a kid in a candy store. I often spend time wondering if I could have chosen better- but, that kind of thinking is a waste of time and energy. Choose we must, my inner Yoda says. Letting go of the rest-priceless.


  1. I don't think you can chose wrong when you pick family and friends over something else no matter how guilty it might make you feel at the time. And I guess you could think of it this way: being with them is a good way to get new ides or inspiration for another story!

  2. What balance? LOL! For me, the chaos became the balance.

    I'm still lobbying for a 40-hour day.
