If the Book Gets Published (Gulp!)

February 3, 2014 by Diane

writing a novel

I’m taking a break from writing, shooting the breeze with my Inner Protector, when he says, When the book comes out, what then?

I tour.



Don’t want to tour.


Don’t like to fly.


How about if you phoned it in? He suggests. Skyped the whole thing.

Not a bad idea.

Do you think the publicist would go for that?

Probably not.

You could hope, tho.

There’s always hope.

How about this… how about you send the book out to do its own tour. People can read, can’t they?


So let them read the damn thing.

Could work. It just might work, I say.

The publicist probably won’t go for that, either.

Probably not.

So you’re stuck.

Looks that way.

You’re going on tour whether you like it or not.

Probably so.

Unless the book never gets published.

There’s that.

    You will take one day at a time. Don’t worry about going on tour until the time really comes. If your book gets published we will all be so excited and we will celebrate this wonderful thing happening. In your life. Then you will figure out the rest 🙂

    the inner dialogues we have can be so — informative?

    break a leg with the book.
