So where am I at...

Despite the fact that last week was a killer week which included two trips to the emergency room with my son and about 6 hours of sleep total in three days... I'm doing pretty well. Yesterday was the official launch date for Obsidian and while this is greatly exciting I've found that as nerve wracking as I thought trying to sell the book to an editor was... trying to sell it to the general public is worse. Somewhere along the way I convinced myself that this would be a breeze. I have a background in publishing, albeit non-fiction. I've been through at least eight book launches and two software launches that I can remember and not one of them was nearly as scary as launching my own book. All my knowledge is useless unless you can get your book in front of a receptive audience. And let's face it... I love my family, they've been the most supportive people I know... but I don't think that there are several thousand of them out there waiting to buy my book. What does this mean? This means that I need to find as many people interested in what I write as possible... Can I do it? I certainly hope so... but in the meantime it looks like it's going to be one hell of a ride...
