My new book “Skythane” was about to come out, and a combination of a story rejection and a potential bad review had me pulling out my hair.
After all, it’s not every week you celebrate your first novel, and it turns out that can come with a lot of stress.
How a week can change things.
The book released on Friday to a torrent of great reviews (thank you, one and all), and while it’s too soon to tell how sales will go, I’m in a whole better place this week than last.
And yet, I feel a bit out to sea, now that it has actually happened.
The blog tour is all scheduled. It will run for another week and a half, but there’s no more work to be done on that front besides adding the reviews and guest posts to my own blog and social media as they come in.
So what do I do next? Obviously, I write. I have a sequel to finish. But am I done with promo for “Skythane”? Is there something else I should be doing to make sure it stays out there in the public eye?
I’ll throw this out to my fellow writers. What do you do once the release date has come and gone?
