It’s been a great week! Despite technical difficulties, the Touching Heat release was everything I wanted it to be and more. But now…

I’m experiencing post-release let down.

While I’ve published short pieces before, and a novel through my own publishing company, I’ve never had the thrill of having a book released through someone else. That part I expected. What I never expected was that thrill to morph into a kind of ennui so soon after the release. It’s like that feeling of “now what?” I sometimes get after I finish a particularly good movie or book, or go home from a really rousing party. The fun part is over and reality is back.

So what do I do now? The same thing every writer should, if they know what’s good for them.

I write. More and faster. And it’s a relief, in a way. As thrilling as publication is, I’m still new at it. This putting word after word on paper…I can do that. Writing, that I know. Let’s get back to that. Yes.
