First, it was me making family time, which wasn’t so bad and he did come to terms with it rather nicely. After all, I do need my lovelies to function the way I do and make Demon more awesome. But then when this past month, I ditched him in favor of another, he was forced to breathe fire.
When his perfect form dives into water, I STARE! And staring I was at my TV the entire Olympics, watching and cheering the swimmer win gold and cursing the water when he didn’t. In my defense, Phelps is one sure shot gold trinket and he’s adorable to look at too – kinda like what Demon would be after his debut *fingers and toes crossed!*
Demon thinks I’m being unfaithful. I wouldn’t disagree.
This here is an odd crossroads I’ve reached. My book is complete, properly edited and fine-tuned, the cover almost in place with a few tweaks left here n there and all of a sudden I’ve become lazy. I have to write a small intro about me, Shami has to do the same about her, but we’re just not getting it done. Although we sit and work on getting the book to the end of the final stages every day, somehow, it’s not reaching there.
Everything seems to have slowed down – my pace included. Suddenly I feel I want diversion. And I am easily distracted too like I never was while I was still writing Aoife & Demon. I was energetic then, brimming with ideas and getting my swollen head feeling every now n then but now – zilch!
It’s like I’ve come to the end of the road while there are still miles to go before I sleep. I think the main hurdle that put a bump in my speed was the cover. You already know the story of how tough it was to make it. Now that it’s almost done, we are working on a website to launch before the book comes out.
That is a whole new blog post, believe me! Next week, ok? :)
It feels very nice to have friends ask when the gem is coming out but it also freaks me out a little. How much longer can they wait? A few weeks more and they may even not want to wait more and not ask about if they have to! Oh no please do not move away from us! It’ll be out sooner than you think, sooner than I plan too as well.
Please be loyal to Demon – unlike me ;)
