A short while back, I wrote about the upcoming publication of my fourth novel, JOCKEYING FOR YOU http://wp.me/prBca-4vj. The thrill of getting another book over the finish line has been a real high for me. This time more than any other. Because my upcoming new release is based on a sport I originally knew nothing about—horse racing.
There were plenty of times I doubted myself. Would I ever get this book done? would I be able to accurately convey the complex world of horse racing? Would the story line be as compelling as the sport?
When this story was finally sold to my publisher I felt like one of the thoroughbreds in my book, standing in the winner’s circle. Sweaty. Heart pounding wildly. And out of breath.
The high of having an upcoming publication date still hasn’t faded. But like a thoroughbred, I cannot rest on my laurels. There are still more races left for me to compete in. For me, that means entering the authors’ race with more books.
To be honest, releasing a new book is scary due to the sheer volume of other contenders. Thousands of other authors racing to cross the finish-line, too. Sometimes I worry. Will my entry stand out? Or be lost in the crowd?
The winner’s circle awaits.
What are your goals? Do you find it hard to cross your finish line?
JOCKEYING FOR YOU will be released September 28, 2016! Stay tuned for a cover reveal!
