“So what? All writers are lunatics!”
― Cornelia Funke, Inkspell
Rayven’s Keep officially launches today.
Did you notice how calmly I said that? I was so impressed I stopped for a moment to read it again. Yep, a nice rational sentence. Even better, If you could see me right now you would notice I am going about my day appearing as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. I am sure you are amazed and a little impressed by my self-restraint, right? Me, too!
So, why do you keep glancing at the quote at the top of the page? Admit it, I know you are curious. Okay, fine…I’ll tell you. Have you ever seen the test with the dancing woman? (http://tinyurl.com/n4p9z8) The one where if you see her turning clock-wise you are using your right brain – the creative side, and if you see her turning counter-clockwise you are more analytical? Don’t tell anyone, but I can make her dance either way. How cool is that!
Still don’t understand? All right, I’ll tell you more. If you could look inside my head right now – ignore the clutter, please – you would notice right away that the left side of my brain is going about its day like it is any other day. But, the right side has been taken over by a 5 year old jumping up and down, doing cartwheels and a crazy child version of an end-zone dance. She is squealing with delight and, well, running amok. Lefty is trying to rise above the noise and be professional, but 5-year old is having none of it. It’s war in there people!
Crap! My right eye just started to twitch. Never mind, I will manage. Is that a goofy smile on my face? Say it ain’t so! I can do this, really – I can do this….
Who am I kidding? Rayven’s Keep officially launches today!!!!!! Squeee!
Yay! Congratulations on seeing your book in the wild! Never mind about calm, this is a dream come true!
Thanks, Jessa! This has been a wild ride for sure.
Yay! My inner five-year-old os dancing along with you!
And they are having a great time!
My inner 5 yr old is dancing with you too! Congrats Kylie! Well done, well done indeed!
Hey Margaret! Thank you so much. I am glad to see you dancing as well 🙂
Virtual chocolate and wine/beer (your choice) coming your way. I’m doing the snoopy dance for you on my end.
Awesome, Maggie! We are definitely having a dance party and now we have virtual chocolate and wine/beer! This day rocks!
So happy for you! My inner 5 year old salutes yours.
And mine stopped dancing long enough to salute right back 🙂 I love 5 year olds, don’t you?
You have good reason to turn cartwheels and squeeee! Congratulations!
Thank you! This whole day has been a little surreal.
I got the girl to go the other way by starring at her foot. I don’t see the logic in that but I have complete control of her direction by starring at her chest to go right and her foot to go left. And congrat on your official release of Rayven.
Congratulations! What a great way to explain the whole book releasing syndrome!
Hi Paty, I don’t know if I explained it well, but that was what was buzzing around in my head 🙂
Such fun! I couldn’t tell you how I got her to turn either way, but now I have to go back and see if your idea works for me.
Congratulations! I love the cover of Rayven’s Keep!
OMG! How are you? It has been too long! I kinda like the cover myself 😉
Congratulations, Kylie! Send that stodgy ol’ left brain to bed with a glass of warm milk and let right brain party on!
Drat! Wish I had thought of that last night when the right brain was keeping me awake 🙂
Congrats, Kylie. I’m just waking up on the other side of the world. I hope you had a fabulous release day. I’m so excited for you.
Thanks Joanne! I think I am still trying to process the whole thing, but what an awesome thing to come to grips with, right?
Congrats, Kylie! I’m bringing cupcakes to restock the party. Happy release week!
I love cupcakes! 😉
Huge congrats… so excited for you:)
Thank you! Everyone has been so supportive and I am truly humbled.
Awesome, Kylie! Congratulations to you, and here’s a toast to many, many, many sales!
