2 weeks exactly until the release of Pretty (so not anxious about it at all.) I’m glad I’ve been through this once before already and I know that the anxiety pretty much dissipates immediately upon publication. Right now, I feel this massive pressure to somehow control the outcome. What can I do? Who can I call? In a couple of weeks that illusion will be blasted and I’ll have to just surrender to the fact that my job is to do my work, get it out there and then make myself available if someone wants to talk about it. Whether or not people want to read it isn’t really my business.
Still, I’m happy to say that I’ve had a couple of good reviews come in already. Leah Tallon’s at The Nervous Breakdown is my favorite.
Also, the Reader’s Group Guide is up at the Penguin website, along with an interview.
