One Big Stress Ball

So yeah, that's me as of lately. But the good news is that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. And it's getting closer.

I just finished with copy edits for my third book, Secrets from the Sleeping Bag and guess what? I found it on Amazon already for pre-sale!!! Check it out HERE  if you get a chance. I love the cover, it definitely fits with the other two.

Also, Gossip has will be translated and published in two more countries now--Indonesia and Israel--making it 8 countries total!

So...who's read RUMORS? I'm thinking it might be time to do a giveaway for a signed copy soon.

Even though I stress over deadlines, I love writing. I'd rather stress over that than anything else. And keep in mind:

What do you stress about most?

That IS a great cover!

I stress about everything, but lately I've been stressing most over deadlines. I think I might even look like that picture as well. :o

As long as that light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train, then it's all good!

I manage stress by eating chocolate. Loads and loads of chocolate.

Glad you are coping well with the stress Rose.

I think crossing off things on my to-do list stresses me out--I never get as much done as I should.

I don't stress much, but I do wish I could finish these revisions.

We loved Rumors in my house! Can't wait for Secrets!

Hi Rose,
It was really nice meeting you at Barnes and Nobles today. By the way I am the artist that was there with her three kids.
My daughter is really excited too, she had look at your divas and drawings and she loves them.

Take care and happy holidays.

My daughter was just asking me about Rumors! Though she keeps telling me it should've been titled Bacteria in the Boys Room. hahaha

I'm glad you're seeing the light! (And all this stress hasn't ruined your humor on Facebook. If anything, it's accelerated!)

I've been freaking out too. I have a paper and presentation due in my grad class, I'm teaching a grammar course at work, and I have to critique 2 entire manuscripts for a conference. And only have a month. AACK!

Dear Ms. Rose,

I love the books you write!
They are amazing and I hope to be an author someday! I would be really motivated if you do a giveaway for the signed copy of Rumors. I love the first book too and i can't wait to preorder Secrets. It seems so interesting.

Thank you,
