Three days. THREE DAYS! That’s how long we have to wait until the cover reveal for The Rise of Genesis. It feels like I’ve been sitting on this one forever, but I didn’t want to reveal it until shortly before the release of the book. Now that the time is almost upon us, I don’t feel nearly as prepared as I should.
Everything is ready. Everything is in order, The cover is gorgeous, the book is fantastic (I think). Yet I’m nervous. Not for the cover reveal, but for what comes after. March 16th will mark the release date for this story, and I feel like I have no clue what I’m doing. For those of you that don’t know, writing is like a roller coaster. It takes forever for you claw your way to the top, and once you`re there, it seems like a blink for you to reach the bottom. From the birth of an idea, to the execution of your first draft, to the publication after rounds and rounds of rewrites and edits, this never stop. What I mean is, you work very hard to do one thing, and when you start to feel good about it, doubt creeps in. That`s the drop. It drags you down hard and fast and before you know what hit you, you`re uncertain about everything. But like a roller coaster, it`s a loop. You don`t stop at the top or the bottom, you just keep going round and round. Getting off the roller coaster means the ride is over, and as hard as it can be, nobody wants it to be over. Not when you`re having so much fun and loving the ride. The good news is, it isn`t a roller coaster for one. Although often times you feel like you`re alone, the reality is I`m on it with you. You just don`t know it yet! But on March 16th. You will!
