Hi, guys! Sorry, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but you know how life get’s crazy… Well, that’s exactly what has been going on over here.
Today, I wanted to post a little something that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. No, I’m not talking about Twizzlers, Tequila, or Wine. I mean we could have all of those after the post, though. Totally up to you, as I would never judge. I would love a giant cupcake.
Alright, let me get right to it as I can hear some of you yelling at me to hurry up. Today, August 24, 2016, marks the day that I release my tenth book…. Yes, you read that correctly, and yes, I went and double counted them all as I didn’t believe it myself.
Looking back to the first day I hit publish I never thought I’d have two books, let alone ten out by now. It’s still hard to believe that this is what I do. I love writing… I love all the good and bad sides of it, so I can’t see myself stopping anytime soon. Now, don’t get me wrong as there are days where I feel I’ll never get the next one written, but it always works out in the end.
In a recent conversation with one of my friends, I was talking about how nervous I was for release day. You’d think that after this many titles under your belt, you just go with the flow. Let me say that is not the case. I worry that I forgot to put something down on my to-do list, that every single person in the world will hate the book, that it will go un-noticed, and not one person will click that buy link. Like, this struggle is very real.
In reality, I think it might get worse with each new release. You have more pressure, more demands, and harder expectations that you set for yourself more than anyone else ever would. Not to mention the goals that you set personally, and having the ups and downs of releases. In the mix of worrying about cover reveal day, release day, promotions, etc., you have a life that throws you some curve balls. Then I stop and remember what it feels like when it’s all done and over. The high of a release is gone, the thrill of the madness that you have to tend to is long behind you. That’s when I have to pick up the computer and dive into the next release. It’s the fight that you have with your characters, then the pacing while you bite your nails as beta readers give feedback, the hiding that you do while your editor marks your baby up. Maybe I’m a writing junkie. Is that even a thing? I know I can’t be wrong when I say it’s an addiction, but, I could be very wrong. For me, it is an addiction that when I struggle to write, I get all cranky, and no one likes me.
But, here we are on yet another release day, and I can’t be happier that Sugary Sweets is now live.
Over the last month, it’s been a roller coaster of BLAH moments… Times like all authors you question what you want, why do you do this when the market is flooded with amazing stories. My answer is simple; I love to write. I like to create a place for readers to escape. That is why today marks the achievement of my tenth book. It’s for the fans, the new readers that you gain, and every person that like to lose themselves in a story.
For that, I thank you all for following me on this journey no matter where it takes me.
Join me in the celebration of the newly released title Sugary Sweets where you can find it on all devices.
A celebration sale for Frosted Sweets as it’s currently #FREE on Amazon and Sugary Sweets is marked down to 99 cents for a limited time only.
Again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Now, let’s get number eleven done.
