IWSG - Reaching The Finish Line

Posted on June 3, 2015
It's right there! Just a bit more...

This month's IWSG post is all about my insecurities with launching my new Family Relics series in July. I had planned to release the first book on July 3rd, on my 40th birthday, but it may be delayed a bit with travelling and other pre-summer activities. It's also a long 4th of July weekend, and I'm not sure if releasing a book during a popular holiday weekend is a good idea. Also, it's my 40th birthday and my family and friends are all asking me about my plans. I might be MIA the entire weekend.

I'm still working with the cover artist, and still going over the last proof on the kindle. Found a few changes, but this will be the last pass. I know each pass will bring about more changes. I have to stop at some point. I can't be that writer with OCED.



And of course, as I work on the outline for the second book, my attention is drawn away by other projects that I've put aside - like neglected toddlers tugging at my hem while I'm tending to the baby. (Not now Projects. Not now!)

So, wish me luck for the coming weeks. I will need all the good juju I can get from you guys.

  3. Probably not the start of July. Maybe the week after would be better. Good luck whatever you decide to do.

  4. Congrats! You're right there, so close to the finish line. All that's left is to cross it with your book release. But I think the festivities of 4th of July weekend will drown out your book release. Unless the story ties in into the holiday. Happy 40th and good luck!

    1. The 4th of July has absolutely NOTHING to do with the story, so I think I'm going to push it. Maybe August 1st. Feels like a good day, doesn't it? Thanks for the good wishes Lidy!

  5. Good luck! I agree that releasing a book around the 4th of July is probably a bad idea. Too many people will be away from their computers, so you'd miss out on a lot of exposure. Maybe if you crashed the parade and declared you had a new book that would work. ;)

    1. Thanks Patricia! Definitely moving it a couple of weeks. I can't compete with the fireworks over the the East River in NYC.
