The author talk is an exhilarating experience, a juxtaposition of highs and lows. It begins long before the actual presentation, beginning with the call or email that says, “yes”.
The Author Talk
I psyche myself up,
Make the call, send the email and wait.
An invisible face, clad in the cloak of self-publishing.
I kid myself,
It’s not as hard as I think, it will be okay.
