Erik: How have your aspirations changed since writing and promoting your first book?
Nina: So the promoting never seems to end, that’s one of the catches I didn’t know. My aspirations, so I think what’s happened with the promotion part of it is the aspirations change because what happens, I think when you start a business and I think of the book as the product, as part of a larger business is that you go along with what comes your way to some extent. When you’re starting up, you’re just trying to get a feel out there, meet with a lot of people, see what’s working and the whole publicity piece has been what’s working, what’s not working? Who’s coming to me? So, I mean I’ve done TV, I’ve done the interviews, I’ve done the newspaper and all these different invitations came to me from across the country from different organizations. I’m at that point right now, where I have to start thinking how do I control this process. Not just who’s coming to me but backing up a little bit and like regaining control over the process is really where I am mentally now with the book.
