BOOK UPDATES 09/2013
It's been a long time!!
I know it's been forever since I updated this part of my blog.. And while it may seem that not alot is going on with the book, that actually couldnt be farther from the truth. There's a ton happening, just most of it isn't blog worthy. When you finally publish a book, the real work actually starts. That of promoting (the most important part) and selling (even more important). And most of it is far from glamourous! I've been pretty much sending review copies to every blogger and book reviewer out there to get reviews posted on the net. This is extremely important because reviews drive the sales of books. That isn't a difficult concept to grasp, if you figure books have very little other way of being promoted, save for word of mouth. And when I'm not mailing out those copies, I am mailing actual orders (the best part)! So if I only did those two things, in addition to being a mother and my other work I would be busy enough! But of course that's not all, lol. I have much bigger plans for this character and I'm spending time trying to facilitate that happening (more to come on that later!!). I also have been entering book awards (another necessity), planning readings/meet and greets, anddddd trying to finish up the fourth book. Phew!!! Anyhoo I am uber pleased to annouce that today I found out we won our first award, thanks to Mom's Choice! I am so honored and excited to be a part of the list of winners. And I only hope that this is the first of many!!!
