Well, the date for my book reading is getting closer and closer and, while I’m not quite incapacitated by a panic attack, it tends to sneak up on me when I least expect it. On the plus side, it doesn’t hurt nearly as much as it used to do and I can move through it much more quickly than before. It’s not that long ago that even the thought of going out in public would put me into a corner, whimpering. I’m proud of myself for being able to say that, you know. I’ve come a long way and, when I stop to think about it, I’ve done a lot of healing and a lot of growing.
Now all I have to do is decide what to bring for munchies, which stockings to wear and which part of the book I’m going to be reading from. I’m leaning towards the first chapter, or maybe the second or third, somewhere in the beginning of the book, anyway. That way, I don’t have to cue up the back story so that people will understand what’s going on in the section I’m reading. But then there’s that section about… sigh… Any thoughts on which section you’d like to hear out read aloud?
And, while I’m hoping that the books arrive in time to be sold, I suspect that I’m going to be having people sign up if they want an autographed copy. My copy of the book has yet to arrive and it was ordered about a week to ten days prior to the rest of the books.
/act goes wandering off to see if there’s enough paper in the printer to do a couple of chapters, just in case I can’t decide.
