I desired to write a really good post about how to get ready to push a book. How to work with your company’s PR department (if they have one) to set up a plan. What to do if your company doesn’t have one. How to contact blogs on your own. How to hire a PR firm if you want (from paying for a huge push, to just paying for them to approach some well known blogs for you). Lotas things.
Then life happened. Mom spent the last two days in hospital after some major passing-out/dizzy/woozy/white-between-the-ears days, (yes that last one was weird, but my mom is not an ordinary woman) and yesterday got a pacemaker.
To say I am wiped out is an understatement. So you’ll get this next time I am up. Meantime, remember that spending time with family and the people you love is most important. Even more important than writing. (I know. Sacrilege, right?)
So. Spend a half minute thinking about the people in your life who mean something to you. Those here with us now and those passed on. And allow your soul to give a moment of thanks to whatever you believe in (or the universe, because thanks is universal and the universe is in us) that those people have been part of your life. Maybe take minute and send off a message to them or make a call. Maybe even mend a bridge or two. Because once they are gone, they are lost to us. Not making a point about any afterlife message. Just that life is precious. And time is not ours to control.
Hugs all around.
