I’ve got some bad news. You might want to sit down for this. In fact, go grab some chocolate before you sit down. This is big.
Ready? My publisher has changed their mind and they’re no longer going to publish my book.
OK, now take a bite of that chocolate. Take a deep breath. Actually, my book is still going to be published. Just not this summer. (I’m sorry, but you always give really bad news first. That way it doesn’t sound so bad when you deliver the sort of bad news.)
It’s true. Because of the Olympics and the upcoming election, my publisher realized that my book wouldn’t get much publicity if it came out in August because shockingly enough, there are people out there who would rather hear about the Olympics and the election than my book! I know!
Anyway, Guideposts is still planning big things for my book, but they’ve been pushed back a bit so they can launch it with style in time for Mother’s Day 2009. I know, I know, it’s a year away. But just wait until you see what they roll out to publicize the book. It’s going to be fabulous—and now they have extra time to think of even more ohmygosh over-the-top promo.
I kinda feel like an idiot after talking about my book and the tour and putting a countdown ticker on my blog!
My biggest concern was telling you guys. But I know how awesome all you readers are and I know that you’ll stick around and wait until next spring. Sooo, until next spring, I guess you’re just stuck reading my blog. Oh the horrors.
OK, now I’M in search of some chocolate!
