I really need to get Delphinium out. Larkspur’s sales have peaked, and even though it’s not even been 3 months yet, I already feel like ‘hey I wrote a book!’ is getting old. I don’t want to spam people, I want people to read my stuff because they like that sort of thing. My Facebook Party has 18 confirmed guests, and my sales are at 132- so it seems people are at least a little interested.
But I won’t be able to keep anyone’s interests with a short novelette and no sequel.
I moved the facebook release date to the 30th, just so it wouldn’t stay on the 20th, but I think I can hit that. The extra week is giving me a lot more breathing room, even accounting for an exam I have to take on the 23rd. I’m essentially home alone for the next two weeks (family in Poland, and while brother is at home, he’s out a lot) and won’t have many distractions aside from keeping the house not-on-fire. Now just not to get sucked into procrastination.
Larkspur will still be free on the 20th and 21st, going on to Nook, Kobo and other platforms the 22nd.
I’m going to take the risk and announce my ~release date for Delphinium: A Necromancer’s Love–
June 20th, 2014 ❤
KDP Select ends on Larkspur the 21st, and so for the last two days (20th and 21st) I’m going to have Larkspur set to FREE. By that point I want there to be a link in the back pointing to Delphinium (which will NOT be in Select). After the 21st I’ll put both books on to other platforms like Kobo and B&N.
I’m writing this post for two reasons- hype, and motivation. The only reason I managed to get Larkspur done is because I set a publish date and *had* to stick to it. So I’m going to do this again with Delphinium, knowing there are at least a few folk who are waiting for the release.
It is for Zoe Dawson’s ‘The Starbuck Chronicles: AfterLife’ – it’s urban fantasy.
I’ll have a 15 minute slot from 5:45pm – 6:00pm, where I’ll be there to answer questions or receive comments. I’ll also be asking everyone the meaning of purple larkspur– and the chosen winner will get a copy of Larkspur: A Necromancer’s Romance emailed to them.
