Happy Monday, friends. Not sure why we say that, really, since most folks I know aren’t all that jacked about Mondays. Me included. But hey, maybe it helps the motivation pick up a little speed, who knows. Positive thinking is always a good thing, right? So, April 2017. Which means I have survived the release…read more...
I was sixteen the first time he said it. With his arm around me in the darkened room, my head on his shoulder, probably half asleep. “I love you.” Three little words that had the power to change my life. If I chose to let them. Of course at sixteen, love was exciting. Love was…read more...
What To Do After Launch Day!
So Where Hope Begins is now out in the big wide world. Godspeed, my lovely. And yesterday was a little nuts. The nerves. The onslaught of notifications. The well wishes and fun comments, and feedback. All wonderful and totally mind blowing, not to mention a tad overwhelming. Oh and did I mention a Facebook LIVE chat – um, yeah, ok, I’ll even post all that awkwardness for you here, incase you missed it. It’s posted over on my Facebook Author Page. We talked about the new book, but there are no spoilers for those who haven’t read it yet, don’t worry.
A few things I’ve learned from readers thus far –
You need tissues. Lots. And. Lots. (Yes, I knew that).
Brock is everybody’s new #bookboyfriend (Yes, I figured that would happen).
More tissues necessary. (Yes. I know. I feel that).
This book is deeply moving and has the power to change lives. (Really a wonderful thing to hear, thank you).
This book cannot be read in public because of the ugly crying. (Yeah. Sorry).
Arrange for food and water to be brought in once you begin, you will not be moving. (What if you have to go to the loo?)
Anyway, all that to say THANK YOU to all my early readers, and my wonderful street team who are doing such an amazing job spreading the word about Where Hope Begins! All the reviews and interviews have been so much fun so far!
There are giveaways of the book on some of these, so be sure to check them out!
As always, this whole book launch thing is just a little nerve wracking, but I’m so so grateful for all your wonderful support and encouragement! If you pick up a copy and like what you read, share it with friends! And leave reviews on GoodReads and Amazon and wherever you like! Even a few words will help! I’m so excited that this story is now out in the world, and I can’t wait to hear what you think!
And now I might go take a nap in the sun. 🙂
