Mystic is done. It’s done and ready to go. The files are exported. The Kindle version sits on Amazon, available for pre-order. The paperback is live on Createspace, and I’ve ordered a box of books for people to buy.
Yesterday’s exhaustion was nothing compared to this day. It feels hard to move. The thought of starting the next book seems beyond the capabilities of my body.
At the same time, I’m ecstatic. I’m “caught up,” so to speak (not really because subscribers are still owed the next two books, but they’ll get them in time). And now the next phase of production can begin. I’m so excited for Darkfire. Can’t wait to get it going.
Some pretty big changes are going to be coming into our lives, one way or another. Tomorrow we’re going to look at a home an hour north of L.A., where we’re considering moving. If we don’t move there, we might move somewhere else. If we stay here, I’m almost certainly going to have to take a 9-to-5 job—or pick up a lot of freelance work, which would almost be the same thing, though quite a bit more manageable, and synergistic with my writing and YouTube.
But for now, all that matters to me is that Mystic is out the door, and tonight I can rest.
