ITS HERE! I’m on a plane to NYC right now to start my book tour. 12 cities, ending in PAX. And then DragonCon, SLC Comicon, and then NYCC to wrap it all up. Whew, definitely a vacation after that. Involving Mai Tais hopefully 🙂
I’m really nervous because even today some people got early copies in the mail, and they’re currently reading through my life story, and it feels a bit ticklish, like someone poking through my underwear drawer, lol. A sensation I’ll get used to as the launch happens, I’m sure. I’m slightly afraid they might find something embarrassing or someone might get mad at me about a fact they dispute, etc etc. Already some of the press headlines are provoking some ass-y comments from the fringe negative gaming elements, so I’ve cut myself off reading reviews and such that aren’t directed at me. But ultimately, I’m so happy with the book, and I hope most people will be too! It’s so hard to put a creation out there though, especially one you’re invested in emotionally, so I can just take comfort in the fact that I did the very best book I could, and even if a few people are touched by it, it’s enough. Creativity isn’t about ourselves, it’s about the way the things we create affect other people. (Effect? Grr. I always forget).
If any of you can make it out to the cities I’m touring that would be wonderful! The links are on my Facebook Events Page and if you’re in the UK your orders will help a lot, here’s a Sweepstakes UK link if you want some possible prize incentive!
And leave a comment if you’ve started reading, let me know what you think, what picture you laughed at most, or if you were inspired to try something new because of it!
