So I say to myself, “Now, Cynthia. How hard can it be to get a little attention for your book? I mean Symphony of Dreams is a great story. The people who’ve read it, love it. You love it. And we’ve all been in Symphony’s position at one time or another. So . . . readers identify with it.”
I take a break from the build-up talk because the phone rings and/or I get a text message, and/or an email comes in. (and/or I want to check my sales status in every place I have a status.)
“Well,” I say to myself (because, at that moment, no one else is listening). “When people start to read Symphony of Dreams, they’ll tell their friends, and those friends will talk, and sooner or later -Cynthia Rogan- all kinds of people will be reading your book. Now stop worrying about it and go finish making dinner.”
But, at this point, all I really want to do is grab a big ole spoon and that half gallon of triple chocolate ice cream out of the freezer.
