I'm not going to lie

I wanted to write something beautiful and a bit philosophical today. Trouble is, I'm exhausted.

Some people say writing a book is like having a baby. I have all kinds of thoughts and opinions on that, but I'll leave them for another day. For now it's taking all my energy to do both. It turns out that publishing a book while pregnant isn't easy.

It's rewarding, though. And worth it — both the publishing and the pregnancy.

So please forgive my few words. I must attend to all of the preorder customers who have done so much these past couple of weeks to encourage me.

That is, if I don't fall asleep first.
