I’m so excited that my newest tween novel, ONCE UPON A CRUISE, officially sets sail today!
I wrote the manuscript when I was hugely pregnant and juggling two other book deadlines, so–oddly enough–the story is about a girl who can’t say no to things. Yeah, I really had to dig deep for that one. 😉
If you’re in a partying mood, I’ll be having a launch party at Newtonville Books in Newton, Mass. tomorrow, Sept 28, at 7pm. Here’s the Facebook invite with more info. I’m also doing a fun “nautical fairy tale” contest on Twitter:
This is my eleventh published book–which sounds crazy when I put it that way–and as exciting as the process continues to be, it also continues to be scary! What if no one comes to the launch? What if no one reads the book? What if no one LIKES the book? The anxiety, it seems, never goes away! Thankfully, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to focus on what I can control: writing. So, back to work I go! 🙂
