Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be experiencing my first formal interview with CBC radio about Laughing Through A Second Pregnancy – my first book! HOLY SHI*!
While I don’t yet have the printed book in my shaking hands, I do have the finished manuscript printed out and I’ll be using it tomorrow at the interview.
I’m nervous and not just because I know that my voice sounds like a 4-year old’s when it’s recorded (it’s true. I once had a caller phone in on a radio show I hosted and ask if my mom was with me) but because this marks the first ‘official’ bit of press on my book.
It’s real. It’s happening. I’m a writer. A published writer.
I’m freaking out.
(Please don’t tell anyone.)
