To start your book's birthday, you wake up all excited that your book is out. But your dog is all like "Whatever. Can we play? Can we go for a walk? Let's do SOMETHING!"

And then it gets even better when you get roses from your publicist! (But then your dog is jealous and tries to eat them.)
And then you get a super sweet present from your whole publishing team, with the name of your pup plus the names of your fictional pups. (#LOVE!)
And you spend most of the day checking your Amazon ranking (#1 at the moment in "Literary Humor"!), and stressing about the two spoiler-y reviews that people left, and hoping there will be lots of nice reviews posted before the bad ones start to come out. (Because they're out there - they're inevitable!)
And then you go out to dinner to celebrate! (Okay, I don't normally take my book along out to eat, but my sis brought the copy she ordered so I could sign it.)
|Mmmm. Biscuits. Mmmm. Moscow mules!|
|I always draw up a calendar to map out the action|
