5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Cue not-so-Adorable freakout!

NINE

In five days that’s the number of books that I’ll have out there. The number of pieces of my heart that I’ve shared with the world at this point. I never imagined that I would actually have the opportunity to share one piece let alone NINE.

To me, NINE is a lot. It’s almost double digits!

The scary part is that I have plans for three more AND that doesn’t include the one I’m working on right now.  That makes THIRTEEN for those of you that didn’t feel like doing the math but right now I’m focused on the NINE. Why?

My first book was published in November 2013… less than two years ago. So… NINE books in two years. (Maybe ten if I ever get my current WIP finished.)

At this point you mgiht think that release day gets easier. The fact of the matter is that it gets harder and scarier for me each time. Mind you, none of this happens for five more days yet I’m already starting to freak out. I’m making my release day post today because I’m already planning on hiding in my office with the lights off and the computer disconnected from the internet.

What’s so scary about release day? Hmmm… For ever author I’m sure it’s different. Here are my top two things…

  1. I don’t sell a single book – yes this sounds horrible but all I ask for is ONE. One person to take a chance on my work.
  2. The reviews. This could be my #1 but I try to learn from my reviews if they are bad so I take all reviews in stride. The bad ones still sting, though. I sent out a TON of ARC’s this time (over 100 at least) so when the reviews start popping up on Amazon… cue another freak out! I can’t look on release day or I’ll be overwhelmed.

There are many other things that will add to the chaos inside my head on release day but to list them all would make me sounds cray cray AND it would take all day. We’ll just stick with the top two for now.

 

The moral of this story…

Next, a Kiss series novel, releases Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Available only on AMAZON and FREE on KU

 

What if one kiss could change everything?

It did, for Reagan Brooks. Her fascination with Luke Evans went from a school-girl crush to heart-wrenching love in an instant. Then he left town, leaving a starry-eyed Reagan in his wake. No one will ever be good enough. No kiss will ever compare to his. Reagan’s standards are high. When someone doesn’t meet them, she moves on.

“Next in line, please.”

Moving through life with unrealistic expectations can be damaging. Letting those expectations go… It’s in that moment we find out who we are and what we really want.

 

So… I’m gonna go freak out a little in my office, try and mentally prepare for Tuesday and then find a way to distract myself for a few hours so I can get some much needed writing done. Thanks for listening to me rant. I’m sure this post make little to no sense.

Have a great weekend all!
