The road to my first book’s publication has proved really emotional so far.
Reach out! Happy to chat.
No, there's absolutely no way to stay sane. It just slowly abates, and in about six months you're like...wow I was really out of control. For each book the crazy period gets shorter and shorter, though. For my first it was about six months before and after pub. For my second it was three before and three after. Now I have a book coming out in three months, and I'm not crazy yet at all! It's coming though!
