Random Thoughts' Monday: Trying to grasp... life at the moment. It feels as if everything has spun from its axis since last week, and even today I still haven't stopped spinning like a supersonic top.

And my insomnia is back, so that could also be why I'm having trouble to settle, and why I prolly won't make much sense right now. :)

It's been a week today since all the hoopla for the book's release started. I've been a basket case of nerves, and I guess being a basket case of nerves is, well, bad for your nerves. I'm strangely euphoric and wiped out at the same time.

A part of me knows I need to move ahead, look forward to the future now, to delve into things in which I have a hand right now. Easy to say - harder to do and ascertain. Don't you sometimes have a feeling everything is running away from your grasp and you're powerless to grip them back and sort some sense into everything? That's a little bit what having a book out will do to you. suddenly you're a pubbed author - you have a book out! But the world also needs to learn that said book is out, so you set out on an out-and-out promo roll... which leaves you steamrolled and wondering how on earth you'll get your life back to how it was before the book came out.

So now I need to re-learn how to be a 'normal' writer - the one who goes about her mundane routine everyday and actually work on something upcoming.

Doable? Surely... but right now I'm kinda clueless... I know, I'm a case, innit? :)

Oh, something else - Walking The Edge is #6 on the Top 10 Bestseller list at Noble Romance! Yeah, I'll admit, that made my week.

Looking forward to finding a way how not to crash and burn from the perpetual high.

From Mauritius with love,

Hi Zee,

I sympathise with you. It must be one hell of a rollercoaster ride at the moment. Hopefully in a week or so things will quieten down and you can catch your breathe and relax a little.

Congratulations for making the top ten at Noble!
And here's to reaching #1 on the list!

Thank you Kiru! It sure has been one rollercoaster. Not to say that I don't love and relish this feeling, but it is draining, to say the least. :)
