My stomach is queasy and I’m battling for every breath I take. I’ve been up for a couple of hours, but can’t seem to bring myself to speak or leave my room yet. The cold, clammy fingers of an anxiety attack have been caressing the back of my neck for the last couple of days.
Today is my book launch/signing event.
And I’m freaking the hell out.
The response and show of support has been overwhelmingly positive. The e-book release was relatively easy. Printing wasn’t filled with problems or cries of “Oh no, they have to redo it!”
I even had my first professional interview with a reporter for the VV Daily Press. He released the podcast a couple days ago and the news article -complete with a picture of me and my precious- was published today. http://www.vvdailypress.com/article/20140718/NEWS/140719785
So why am I nervous? The hard part is over, right?
Every step and each event is a new challenge. Especially when I don’t know what to expect and I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing.
This is a whole new set of nerves, anxiety, and made-up problems.
Oh God, I hope I don’t throw a cookie at anyone today…
