Now I’m in waiting mode for Hannah’s Hero to be released. It’s all uploaded and waiting. Release date it May 31. Ready for pre-orders.
In the meantime, I’m still enjoying the hoopla associated with the short story book. I had fun writing my story in it because my characters were in my age group. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do that.
Apparently, the internet ate my post from yesterday. I thought I had told you about Hannah’s Hero being up for pre-order and had added a copy of the cover. As those of you who know me well know, I cannot be trusted with technology. Apparently, I pressed a wrong button and instead of adding the cover art and posting, everything must have gone away. So, here it is again. (I hope.)
Seems like the calendar switched over to Spring about a month ago, yet it was 37 degrees in my little part of the world this morning. Sigh. The weatherman says this should be the last blast of winter. Well, I’m holding him to it.
Hannah’s Hero is now with the formatter. The cover is gorgeous, but I’m going to hold off showing it until I actually have a firm release date. Stay tuned.
Still experiencing trouble with Amazon orders for WHAT A DAY! but other bookstores are keeping up. Please don’t give up, WHAT A DAY! is a fun read and well worth the wait.
WHAT A DAY! has been out for a week now, and I have to report that it has been doing pretty well. However, we are having trouble getting our print copies. Please be patient. I don’t think they expected the demand for “real” books.
In the meantime, I’m putting the final touches on Hannah’s Hero. The manuscript is with the proofreader and I’m working with the cover artist on artwork. I think you’ll like the cover. I won’t have a release date for that until I get the finished draft uploaded to Amazon.
WHAT A DAY! is live on Amazon today! I have already had a Kindle copy posted to my Kindle and I also have a paperback copy ordered which I’d hope to see in the next day or so. Funny, it’s not like this is my first book, but I’m just so excited to see Heart of Dixie Fiction Writers’ production front and center for the world to see.
Waiting for a new book to come out is sort of like waiting through the tenth month of pregnancy. You’re ready to give birth, but it’s going to happen when it is going to happen. WHAT A DAY! will be available to all in just on (very long) week.
In the meantime, I’m polishing Hannah’s Hero, looking for appropriate cover art and generally doing little jobs, anything to keep myself busy.
Next week, several of the authors in WHAT A DAY! and I will be recording a podcast, a first for me, discussing the making of the book. I’ll let you know when and where to get it when they tell me.
Silly me. It just occurred to me that it is indeed Tuesday. I rushed out this morning to exercise because I normally go in the afternoons, but we have a weather alert day and I wanted to be sure I got finished jiggling my chicken fat before it stormed.
Anyway, I rushed home to get to work on Hannah’s Hero. I’m at the point where I’m editing and polishing, and I want to get it finished and into production. Once I get done with it this week, I’ll send it to a pre-reader who might point out plot mistakes or errors in logic, which I will fix and then it might be ready to go out to a proofreader to make sure I’ve dotted every i and crossed every t.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
In the meantime, I’m still counting the days until WHAT A DAY! is released. 14 days until April 5.
Happy five days till spring. I’m not sure it will actually be here, but a woman can hope, especially since we had two inches of snow last week that kept me from going to my writer’s group meeting.
We actually have physical copies of our books in hand, though the official release date is still three weeks away. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and the stories inside are stellar.
In the meantime, I’m alternately polishing Hannah’s Hero so that one can go into productions soon, and also struggling to put together a power point presentation on backyard tomatoes for when I’m wearing my master gardener hat. I’m very good at the creative stuff, but not so much with the technical.
Here is another venue where you can order a paper copy of WHAT A DAY!
Apparently because I cheered that March 1 is the meteorological first day of spring last week, Mother Nature had to have the last laugh. It has turned cold again, and we actually have the dreaded S-word in the forecast for the weekend. Whine.
The good news is that I have my advanced copies of WHAT A DAY! in my possession and it’s great to see the baby that we’ve been working on for more than nine months. You can pre-order paperback copies at Amazon and e-book versions at https://books2read.com/whataday. The official release date is April 5, four weeks from today.
In the meantime, I’m polishing and editing Hannah’s Hero for a possible June release.
