Wrote Another Book


So, the other day, in the wee hours of the morning, I finished writing Explosive Dreams.  I always feel spent afterwards, like I’ve poured all my energy into the task of writing and now that I’m done with it, I have nothing left.  I’m recharging my batteries now.

There’s something strange about finishing a book.  Not only does it feel exhausting, but it feels… sad.  For a few days, I bum around wondering what to do next.  This feeling was greater when I wasn’t publishing.  Since I am, there are things to keep me busy, like getting it to the editor and the beta readers.  There’s a cover reveal to be done.  There’s marketing to plan.

Yet, none of that sounds appealing.  I just want to sit back on my haunches and be slightly down because yet another episode of my make believe world has passed.  And this one was a long one, time wise… It spans from July to November.  That’s a long time in Aislinn Cain years.  She has a birthday in this book, growing another year older.  It’s strange to think that way, but Aislinn Cain has aged a year, at least chronologically.  She probably aged five years physically.  Of course, I can control this, both physically and chronologically and the next book may only span a week or even a few days.  The next seven books might only span a few months, despite taking me two years or so to write.

Anyway, so that’s my mood… Now it’s time to contact the editor.

  1. Cheer up! There’s plenty to do and you could always pull an Aislinn and hunker down to play a game or watch a movie:)
