Why do we all feel so drained on Monday? We’ve had the whole weekend off, or most of you have. There is no reason for me to feel drained, but I do. After all, Saturday I only had a writers group meeting and an interview for a podcast. We ate out or rather brought home pizza. I think it was the pizza. The excess of bread makes me pretty lazy. Mostly because I don’t eat much bread.
Today I feel like I’ve already put in a full day of work, but I’m only getting started. You may think as a publisher I sit around eating candy and playing games on the computer. I wish! This morning I have sent two contracts out, answered two letters, in detail, about our podcasts, put one book on Amazon for pre-order, put a devotional on Facebook.com/encouragingchristiangirls/ and now I’m writing this. Plus I overslept. No wonder I feel tired. This is what I love. The busier I am the better I like it.
When I finish this I will do a final edit on a book that releases in October. Final edits are usually faster than the first edit. I have a first edit to do when I finish the final edit. Time needs to be spent in marketing sometime today. Tonight we have a football game to go to.
Both of our grandsons play football for their high school team. The freshman plays on the Jr. Varsity and the Freshman team. The senior plays varsity. That gives us three nights a week at ball games and church on Wednesday nights.
A podcast went out this morning. It’s with a new author, Justine Riley. She has written the sweetest children’s book about horses. There is so much detail about horses, but with a child’s point of view. I loved it. You can find it on mantlerockpublishingllc.com/podcast/
If you have a published book and would like to be on the podcast, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have open spaces for September.
