This isn’t something I want to do, but after signing up to go on two conferences (one in April and another at the end of May) and finding out one of my kids threw up today, I began to feel stressed out. And after taking a moment to sit down and evaluate why I was feeling overwhelmed, I realized it was the fact that I’m not near being done where I need to be. If I want to make my current deadlines, I’d have to sprint it, and if I do that, I might lose the quality in the work.
Since I’m probably going to have a series of kids getting sick in the next couple days, I’m going to have to figure out new release months for the current works in progress. I don’t want to make any rash decisions. I want to have time to sit and think it through. Right now, I’m frazzled. It’s been one of those days, and I’m not thinking straight. What I do know is that I need to push back the release months so I don’t get stuck feeling like I need to frantically finish up my books.
I’m sorry. I know some of you pre-ordered Royal Hearts. I’m going to try to push back the month on this one. There’s just too many other things going on.
And I promise I will never do a pre-order ever again. I can’t handle the pressure it brings.
