Well, it’s here! Officially, Freefall released yesterday, but today is the launch party. I’m a little nervous, but not really nervous. More… anticipatory? People keep asking me how I feel. I feel like I have to get through a day of teaching, and then I can think about it.
Ever feel like you should have taken the day off and didn’t?
Want to know how it feels to be an author on launch day?
It feels surreal. Weird. A little bit scary.
So much is left up to chance. So much could happen tonight. Ten people could show up. A hundred people could show up. (That’s the dream, right?) We could run out of food. We could have too much food. We could run out of books. We could be left with a stack of books and no clue what to do with them.
People could love it. People could hate it. Worse, they could be totally lukewarm about it.
Bottom line… you have no idea what to expect.
I get up early. As in oh-dark-thirty early every weekday. This morning, instead of digging into Bible study, I sat in my chair, wrapped in my blanket, and God and I just sat together and enjoyed this moment. God and I… we did this together. And God and I… we sat quietly and soaked it in. Trust me, it would never have happened without Him. And I’m so excited He brought me along.
