Power and Majesty is officially released tomorrow. In case, you know, you missed the memo. I feel like I’m in a surreal kind of bubble at the moment. Raeli and I seem to have spent the last three days in our pyjamas, watching TV, baking cupcakes and playing maths games on the computer. Both my girls have been sick all weekend and now I’ve come down with it too, nursing a cold all day.
My honey, when I reported this to him, responded with alarm. “But what about your VOICE?” Hehehe, good to know he appreciates my attempts to make myself the queen of podcasts. I’m due to be interviewed by Annie Warburton tomorrow on the Real Radio, so his concerns are valid, but still. I think my voice will hold up, and if my nose is bright red only Annie will know the truth.
No reports yet of the book actually in bookshops! Does it really exist? I’m starting to get that edge of nervousness now.
At least I know what I’m wearing for the launch. Probably.
Did I mention that Jem is upright now? Not precisely walking, but pulling herself up on furniture at any opportunity. Why yes, that extends her reach quite a bit. Why yes, I am very proud and very afraid all at the same time. The dollhouse really has to go away, and many other of Raeli’s beloved toys-with-small-pieces.
I suspect this may be a veeeeery long week. And by week, I mean the less than three days between now and the book launch, when I get to see lots of you! And hopefully big piles of my books. Boy, it would be embarrassing if they didn’t turn up from the publisher in time, wouldn’t it? Not that I’m worried. At all.
I think I need more cupcakes.
