You know, I often amaze myself at my incredible ability to screw up. If only I would use that amazing talent for good…
Please note this is MY fault. No one else’s, but 100% mine.
So yesterday morning, I got up and checked the day’s blog tour stop at Under the Covers Book Blog. I saw the blog was up and went on with my morning.
An hour or two later, I checked again, actually READING the first line this time and realized it was THE WRONG FREAKING BLOG.
Okay, but how bad could it be?
Sigh…it was the draft of a blog I wrote for B. E.’s blog–unfinished, unedited and (I thought) discarded because it sucked big fat hairy donkey…toes. Let’s just say toes. I mean it was bad. It gives me hot flashes of gut-churning humiliation to even think about it getting out into public.
First I panicked. I started emailing Carla — my awesome assistant who set it all up through her Book Monster Promotions. But Carla wasn’t answering me because sometimes she actually has a life. I mean at least five minutes went by which is a life time when you’re dying of panic.
Then I thought… Text her you freaking moron.
Carla texted right back, then she contacted the Under the Cover Book Blog folks and they immediately fixed my massively embarrassing screw up.
So to be clear, Carla and Under the Cover Book Blog are the heroes and I am the too-stupid-too-live-author who is supremely grateful.
Sigh…if only I could use my ability to screw things up to foil terrorists or something.
Tomorrow I’m going to my local RWA meeting. That should be fun as long as I manage not to humiliate myself.
What are your plans?
