5 stars for Alibi
As an author, it is crucial that you put into it what you want to get out of it. Not only with your writing, but also with everything else that goes along with your book. That includes promoting, advertising, and interacting with the readers.
I will admit, I'm quick to retreat into my writing world when things overwhelm me. It's so much easier to tell myself that I have to write the book or it doesn't matter. While that's true, I also have to do my part in celebrating the new releases and enjoying the relationship I have with my readers. Sometimes it's difficult, sure. Especially when a book releases months after I've finished it. Mentally, I've already moved on to another story, another set of characters. By the time the book comes out, I've lost much of the enthusiasm I had while writing it. Which is where the readers come in. When they get excited about a book, I do, too. That makes it easier to pay attention to the important things, to spread the word, to ensure people know about it.
Now the goal is to refuse to retreat when I should be rushing forward.
Fans of Travis Walker will never be the same.
No, the type of organization I'm referring to here has nothing to do with my home and everything to do with my business, because that is where I tend to fail.
And while there are organizers who put it together and authors who contribute, I am eternally grateful to each one of you. Without you purchasing one or more of the books by the authors who participated, this wouldn't be possible. It is because of you that we can continue to bring awareness and to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness. So THANK YOU!

Yep, it's the one thing most writer's fear. The worst thing about it is that there is no fix. There is no way to reinflate that creative bubble once it has burst. At least not on command. Not that I've found, anyway. At some point, if we're lucky, it comes back and we're once again doing what we love to do.
