It’s not a short title. But I’m loving the cover. Books for the educational market rarely are.
The first draft of the book is done and the first draft to the publisher is due November 30. I’m hibernating in my writer’s cave daily and my brain is so spent by the time I sit down to write this blog post, it sounds like I’ve asked a third grader to take over my blog.
At times, I’m a bit of a deadline mess. Have I got all the good stuff in the book? Plus all the self-doubt that author’s struggle with prior to publishing a book no matter how famous they are or how many books they’ve published. The mad dash to the finish line is painful and stressful. I’ve never written anything like this book. Not even a paper. I suck at the citation part. My last book had a total of four!
Twice today I’ve stopped to do mindful breathing and bring myself back into the present and to soothe my deadline anxiety. Let me know what you think of the cover. It makes it all seem very real, doesn’t it?
The book is due out August of 2021.
