Just one week to go before I am at last a published author. The Summer of Second Chances will be released on 17 07 17 which to me sounds like a very pleasing date for a debut.
So far the book has been released on NetGalley, Goodreads and Kobo and I’ve one very nice review. But next week lots of people who have been kind enough to pre-order will be reading about Lottie and her chance of happiness, hopefully enjoying what they read and of course reviewing it.
All I have been able to do up to now is watch my Amazon ranking move up and down. How can I be #884 in paid reads as I was over the weekend when there isn’t even a book yet? How can I be #1 in Hot Summer Releases?
Anyway I hope people will take the time to read my debut and they will approve! I’ve been doing my bit with Facebook and Twitter and I’ve had some fantastic help from other writers in publicising my book. Writers really are some of the nicest and most generous people. They all seem to like to spend time on social media, I think it’s a chance to escape from the tyranny of those plot holes!
The next thing of course is book 2. I’ve a lot of work to do before I have to submit the edits on August 28th but I’ve had a wonderfully helpful editor in Victoria Oundjian and I’m hard at work. Fingers crossed for 17 07 17!
