So, I did it. I hit publish! It was on a whim and impulsive; it was not planned out like I wanted. Sometimes I just get an idea and have to go with it. Yes, I am insane. I should have planned better, or at least planned a little. I should have promoted the book before I hit publish. I didn’t and I am okay with it – I have to be.
I had another “moment” the other day. I realized that if I only ever offer A Secret Life in the Kindle store as an eBook that I will never have it on my shelf in my office. I want to be able to hold it in my hands. I love the smell of books. I love the feel of a paperback in my hands. I wanted that for myself. It was the greatest feeling the day my proof for Holding On arrived in the mail and I got to look at it, my name printed on the cover. I wanted that again. I had to have it.
Well, I will and so will you. There are so many wonderful sites out there that make all of that a reality for new authors like myself. CreateSpace is one of them. They helped make my little dream come true. Plus, they make it super easy to make your book available. So… I had a print version made. It’s available on Amazon here and CreateSpace here. Check it out. The cover is new and I love it even more. The eBook version is still out there and available here.
Call me impulsive (yes) or crazy (maybe a little these days) or even selfish (I really did feel that I needed a paperback version). Really, I’m okay with any of those terms because every single person who knows me will tell you that my determination to succeed outweighs everything else. Plus, if you love the feel of a paperback as much as I do, you don’t really care if I’m crazy or not. Right?
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy A Secret Life. I wrote it on a whim and published it on a whim. Maybe I am just a little bit crazier than I want to admit. 🙂
