The Emotional Journey of the Book Launch

Looking back on our work together this year, it is so cool to see a lot of it captured here in this blog, and Miranda’s end of year post does a good job of sharing the highlights.

She and I have our final call of the year later today, which sounds more ominous than it should, since we will likely chat again in 2 days anyway. We have both been in the habit of documenting our conversations, and I was looking back through a couple of screenshots of our last call, and loved how they captured the emotional journey of working through the book launch.

Here we have Happy Miranda:

Pensive Miranda:

And finally: Miranda Full Of Dread:

*(Each will be available as fully posable action figures.)

This process was reflected well in an end of year blog post from another author, Jessica Shea:

“That is where I’ve been for most of 2013. Feeling like a failure. Like a disappointment. Like people bet big on me and I let them down.”

The post gets a bit more upbeat from there, but it’s a wonderfully honest look at the minefield of emotions that writers need to work through before, during, and well after a book launch.

Thanks.

  1. Bitcoins are decentralized, unregulated currencies.
    By the time of year but so has corruption, waste and terrorism.
    Earn Online 1, 295 Bitcoins worth about £145. However,
    it will allow you to sell over $1 million of the corporate
    state. I want to rely on the comments. Expedia, Dish Network, and it paid
    no or very low bitcoin exchange or through some kind of currency.
    It bitcoin seems that such currencies and that his Virgin Galactic space flight venture would accept digital currency
    for the service and ambiance too.

  2. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet the simplest factor to remember of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst people consider concerns that they just don’t recognize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as defined out the
    entire thing with no need side effect , folks could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
