This is all a bit surreal for me, this publishing business.
On one hand, I’m trying to keep my business hat on, learning everything I can about the marketing, websites, code – anything I can get my hands on, really.
On the other hand, my head is screaming YOU’RE PUBLISHING A BOOK!!!!
So, you know, my normal frame of mind. Business with a side of insanity.
This is what I’ve wanted for so long, and I’m trying to embrace every moment, but I can’t help feeling like I’m on a run away train with no conductor.
Thomas the train pun completely intentional. Thank you, day job.
As I write this, I have 33 days till What We Know Now is published through Amazon. I spent the weekend figuring out how to load files, add description (still working on that!) and don’t get me started on the keywords. The process feels so final, even though I know changes can be made at any time. Everything is so weighted, like one wrong word could ruin any chance of success.
But, I’M PUBLISHING A BOOK!!
So here is what you need to know…
- What We Know Now will be available on November 25, 2017. I chose that date for many reasons, one being that it’s small business Saturday, and I am officially a small business now. Also, when I actually decided I was going to do this, it was 100 days away from that date. 100 days felt significant, and I went with it. By the way, the ebook is already available for pre-order (!!!) – Just follow the link above.
- My next book, This Is How A Heart Breaks, is tentatively scheduled to be out on May 4, 2018. (Yes, I put that out there to “encourage” better writing consistency on my part.) The books are connected, but not a series. Both are stand-alone books, and I am so excited about this book.
- While I have ignored this website for so long, I do realize it is a part of who I am and how I came to be a writer at all. I will be using it more to send out news and give you a behind the scenes peek at this whole process.
That’s it! My life in a literary nutshell. When I’m not on here, you can always find me on Instagram (@thenovelway) and Facebook. Come find me!
I hope you’re all reading something amazing… So many great Fall books out right now.
Until next time, happy reading.k
