Tip of the Day: Use the phrase "Boo yeah!" at inappropriate times today -- in meetings at work, on the phone with telemarketers, at the doctor's office when the nurse finally calls your name -- the possibilities are endless.
While I sit in the limbo land of waiting for my agent to submit my novel to editors, I have to find ways to pass the time.
I should be writing my next novel?
No, seriously, I am. I swear! But when I'm not, I like to fantasize about what it will be like when my novel comes out (and what's important to note here is that I didn't say IF it comes out; I said WHEN. Not to get all The Secret-ish on you here, but I truly believe that you need to act without self-doubt in this industry. I KNEW I'd get an agent because I KNEW I loved to write and I KNEW that was what I wanted, and I didn't let anything, anyone, or any of my crappier novels stop me (which is another post entirely).
ANYWAY -- in honor of Lisa's YA debut release yesterday, here are my Book Release Party fantasies!
Picture this: Vegas, poolside at the Wynn. Food catered by Ananda Fuara, music provided by Depeche Mode, perfect weather provided by Mother Nature. All of my friends and family would fly out for the event, and the billboards on The Strip would advertise the event with an airburshed photo of me. All expenses would be covered by a Great Expectations-like benefactor who would reveal himself as Dave Gahan at the end of the night because he loved my work so much.
What? That's not likely to happen? Gah!
But my probable reality's not too shabby either. A party at Spot Coffee, a fabulous Missy Cake, jams rocked by John Viviani and the Filthy Funk, and all my friends and family will be there to eat, drink, and be merry (most likely for a wild, wild afternoon). It will happen! (Note again my certainness of this. All of you Recently Reppeds out there, practice this daily.)
How about all of you? What will your debut release party be like?
