Nice to hear from you again! It's been a whole year since I announced my deal - (can't believe it's like 3 replies up) - my first book comes out 10/16/18, and I'm writing the second one now.

I think time management is the key? I tried to treat my writing like a job even before I was getting paid for it - I hired babysitters while I was in the house - I found time to get out to a coffee shop - I made deals with my wife about giving me an hour of time where she took care of the kids - (we normally shared things about 50/50) - My kids are 9 and 11 now, so it's easier, but in those first years I had to make my writing time sacred, and that took negotiating with my partner.

Congrats again! Will your publisher offer preorders?

And, yes, you never stumble upon free time. You definitely have to make it. Thanks for the tips :)
