If you know me in person, odds are that you know that I'm a highly emotional person when it comes to, well, everything... but this is different.
As I type this blog post, I'm shaky and fighting back tears over something small, that'll truly not matter in the future. Spoiler alert, I'm probably going to cry about it anyway. I'm a firm believer in letting yourself ride the waves of emotions as they come rather than fighting it just because 'it could be worse'.
You are allowed to feel whatever you want to feel, however you need to feel it. Don't let anyone take that away from you, your brain works differently than theirs.
My book comes out in less than 48 hours and my cover has yet to be approved by Ingramspark. Cue the panic. I have had what feels like infinite issues with my cover and have exhausted all resources trying to correct all my issues before my release.
I know that the solution to my issue is simple and just requires me to swallow my pride again, but I really hate to be that annoying inconvenience that just won't go away. All I have to do is bother him one... more... time. I keep telling myself that after this one last email to him, everything will be fine and I'll never bother him again for as long as we both shall live, which brings me to this:
Mike, in the off chance that you're reading this, I'm so incredibly sorry for bothering you so many times and eternally grateful for all that you've done to help me. I truly couldn't have done any of this without you.
I'm hoping there will be a more in-depth blog post with a happier tone tomorrow and Friday as I make a few exciting announcements, so this is all for now.
I hope your day is going well!
With love and appreciation,
