F³A: Tired, can't think
I'm spent. I've been working at promoting this book, I'm revising another, and yet I've started another.
I can't wake up in the morning.
I'm excited beyond belief, but there is part of me that longs for the hype to be over.
Because I'm tired. Did I mention that?
Wanted to share a couple articles that came out in my local weekly and daily papers.
Tacoma News Tribune
I know I've already done this, but I want to thank you all for your support. This was a really long, long journey, and I don't know if you know how much your friendship and support means to me.
This experience is not one to be gone through alone. It's exciting yes, but it's frustrating, depressing, and annoying at times. You need people celebrating with you, commiserating with you, lifting you up when you fall down. That's you. Whether you're a fellow writer, a reader, blogger, family member or friend, you mean so much to me.
Thank you I would not have made it through without you. (I'm seriously getting choked up right now. Damn you!)

My Dad. He's awesome.
