DEBORAH CROMBIE: Okay, confession time. I am NOT writing. Or at least at the moment I am only writing in my head, snitches and fragments of scenes and dialogue, but I'm not managing to put things on paper, because--
My new book, TO DWELL IN DARKNESS, comes out next Tuesday, 9/23/14. But the kick-off to the five-week-plus book tour is today, with an appearance on our Dallas/Fort Worth morning TV show, Good Morning Texas.
Then Sunday I take to the skies, although there will be sporadic returns home for signings and the occasional "rest" day (um, make that laundry, chores, restocking travel stuff...)
So this is what I'm doing.
And answering emails and doing blog posts and social media and making scheduling decisions--and trying to remember what on earth my book is about so that I can talk to people about it.
Earlier this week I was so frazzled I gave one poor dog both dogs' dose of anti-itch medication. Major panic, dog thankfully okay. So to make myself feel a little less stressed I treated myself to some pre-book-tour roses from the supermarket.
And a lovely dinner with my daughter last night in downtown Dallas, with this gorgeous view of the skyline (above.)
I will set off on Sunday, hopefully well-packed and organized, with my laptop and my notebook, hoping for hotel and airport writing time on Kincaid/James #17.
So, dear REDS and readers, how do you manage to juggle too many things at one time?
