Nooo, not that kind of a release, though hey--definitely thrilling.
I'm referring, of course, to new book releases. I've discovered, so far, the excitement over a book coming out doesn't diminish after the first book. If anything, my excitement builds. I know some of what to expect: The guest blogging, the self promotion, the subtle threats against family and friends who don't snatch up my book right away. But there's definitely new hope with every release.
Will this be the release that changes my career somehow?
I'm lucky in the sense that I not only have a release out today with Noble (Love Revisited: Davit and Jenova), but I also have a recent release on Amazon of a book I wrote many moons ago with a friend of mine (Murder Creek).
I'm having a blast promoting two books at once. It's double the work, of course, but well worth my time. I write fast. Faster than the industry can accept and offer a contract. ::grins:: And I need to be kept busy. I have too many stories in my head to sit back and write a book at a time. I have to at least have three stories going. It keeps me from hitting a writing wall and staring at the same page of a manuscript for three days in a row. If I'm unsure where to go next, I hop over to the next story and keep on working.
I hope this isn't the last time I'll be promoting two books at once, and I hope, friends and fans, that you all have the time to check out both stories.
Today, I'll be running an easy contest. Leave a comment, get a chance to win. Friend me on Facebook and leave a comment on my wall and get another chance to win. Make sure you mention the contest. If you're already a friend, you only have to write on the wall. For a third shot, "like" me and leave a comment on my fan page wall. (Again, mention the contest.) At stake: a free copy of Love Revisited: Davit & Jenova or a free T-shirt. One lucky winner will get both.
If you miss today, don't worry. The contest goes on one more day on another blog where I'm a guest on Tuesday. You'll have to see my Facebook page for details.
Have a great day all, and Good Luck!
All my best,
