Patrick Rothfuss writes about the anxiety he feels around the release of his new novel, The Wise Man's Fear:
But the upcoming signing tour is different. This is kind of a Big Deal. The publisher is paying to fly me around and put me in hotels with the hope that people will come out to the bookstores, listen to me, and buy the book.
This makes things more of a high-stakes situation.
Which is probably why I had a nightmare about my upcoming tour.
