I usually pause and stumble over my words, “Ah, um, well …” The reason why is that as a professional writer and I’m usually working on more than one book at once. It’s very common, actually to be working on four:
The book I’m promoting.
The book I’m editing.
The book I want to write next.
The book I’m writing.
If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or my blogs you probably have seen this. One moment I’m talking about my awesome Amish book that’s coming out. Five hours later I’m sharing photos from my WWII veteran friends and talking about my fall release. Before you know it I’m going to be talking ALL about the Titanic or the Alaskan gold rush, hint, hit. It’s crazy, I know, but there are days I work on all four projects.
Maybe books are like kids. They are all different, you love them all, but there are ones that demand more attention then others during certain seasons of life.
