Releasing a new novel is like watching your child leave on his first day of school. A huge part of your life is now going out into the world and its success or failure depends on how many people like the new kid. Its performance is more or less out of your control. The only way to feel good about its independence is by monitoring its progress daily and decide if you need to help it along.
YES, you DO need to help it along. No one will monitor it for you unless you are ready to separate yourself from your hard-earned money. If you believe in your work, there should be no problem in creating ads and writing copy for them. This is your baby, and you are the only one that can help it move in the right direction.
To date, my new novel, The Image of Rachel Clair, is #1 New Release on Amazon for the “Criminal Law Evidence” category and available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book. Although rankings change every hour, I’m proud to boast that my new novel is a bestseller!
I took a different route in publishing this time with Booklife (Publishers Weekly) and Ingramspark’s printing and global distribution. With the aforementioned daily monitoring, I should see if my different route proves to be successful. Hope so.
Click on the book cover if you’re interested in a historical romance/ murder mystery/page-turner full of twists and turns. I think you’ll be surprised at the ending and what leads up to it.
Happy reading until next time,
