I received my proof copies of The Tourist on Wednesday. Whoo hoo! Uhm, whoo-nooo! I was so happy for about ten seconds. Then terror set in when I thought about the day when the 'publish now button' is to be clicked. Er...no! I decided that the book will never see the light of day and I threw it to the ground and stepped on it-well...stomped is more accurate. The next minute I snatched my baby off the floor and wiped her off. Writing is an experience like no other; I spent the past five months in a serious Jekyll and Hyde mode. It went something like this:
-Oh my...I love that scene, it's definitely my favourite.
-Seriously Olivia? What the heck is this?
-I hate this book!
-This laptop is going to die today!
-The Tourist is killing me...I am going to die today!
-I love this book!
-Can't wait to finish so I can share this story.
-I can't let go of this book-ever!
You may be wondering which Olivia is on duty today, well it's the Olivia that changed her mind and is going to publish The Tourist. I am tentatively eyeing November for the release and trying to pin down a date. If you're on my mailing list you will receive further details next month.
Have a good one my friends!
