What happens on release day?
Release day is one of the most exciting and terrifying days of an author’s life. It’s the culmination of months (sometimes years) of hard work. We authors are always thrilled to see our books make it out into the world, but of course there are the usual worries. Will people like our baby? Will they be interested enough to pick up a copy?
It all starts, as most days do, with waking up. For some of us, this is more challenging:
And then coffee. Because…well, coffee.
Then we head to our desks, trying to act like today isn’t a big deal at all. We’re totally NOT going to immediately stalk our Amazon numbers.
This lasts approximately 3.2 seconds
Then we venture into Amazon.
We’re hoping it will be like this…
And not this:
Release day is often when we hear from bloggers and reviewers, and when they love our book it’s one of the best feelings in the world!
Getting an email from a reader is also a HUGE highlight of the day
It’s also great when our friends chime in and wish us well
That’s when we realize we have A TON OF WORK TO DO!!
Often well into the night:
We usually collapse into bed way later that we’d planned, exhausted from all the excitement and nerves
But it’s so worth it to release another book into the wild.
If you’ve ever shared a post, commented on an authors, bought their new book, or left a review; THANK YOU! Often we’re already knee-deep in plans for our next project, but we appreciate every single reader. With you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we love!
Pick up Taken by the CEO by Stefanie London for just 99¢!
It was only supposed to be a little white lie. When Emmaline Greene pretends to be Sarah, the confident, sexy woman she wishes she could be, she figures no harm, no foul. Her one-night stand will never find out. Wrong. The gorgeous guy she slept with isn’t just amazing in bed…he’s also her new boss.
Parker Wentworth has a lot to prove. He’s just been appointed CEO of his family’s company and is tasked with repairing its scandalous reputation. He can’t afford any distractions or complications. Too bad the attractive blonde he takes to bed turns out to be both. So why can’t he forget the incredible night they spent together and move on?
And why does he have this need to know the real Emmaline?
