I call her the Princess of my Universe because she cracks the whip and I jump. I guess I've done everything in wrong indie process for my first 3 releases. I'm excited to find out if utilizing right process will be a good thing.
The Problem is I function better in the world of the flaky. I write. When I think it's OK I send to BETA Read. When I think it's OK after that, I send to edit, and while I wait for edit I shop for book cover. And then, when I have all the piece I just hit release. No pre-promotion, no blog tour. I just send out into the world and see what happens.
But now I have timelines, expectations, whip cracking, and must do's. Somehow this has turned into a grown up job, and I'm rolling back my age 5 years at a time each year until I'm a teenager again. I'm practicing in anticipation or reaching teenage again by leaving my dirty clothes everywhere and never taking a dish to the kitchen.
But I do so love the cover mock up that she sent me. And if the rest of her whip cracking works this well I'm going to call hiring a PA: "winning"
