Good morning/afternoon. After much deliberation with myself, I have decided to release my novel on January 21, 2022. I am a bundle of nerves to the point where my anxiety is grinning like a Cheshire cat from the backseat.
I am sure a lot of authors have felt this way, and along with other emotions for their first time. It doesn’t matter if it’s they’re traditionally published or self-published; the swarming of mixed emotions would still occurred.
Not only have I chosen this month because it’s, well, the first month of the year, but mainly because it is my dad’s birthday month. He was born on January 6th. (May he rest in paradise.) Though he’s not physically here anymore, I still want to honored him in some way. And, I finally was able to buy him a headstone.
I’m not going to get all mushy right now, but this month means so much to me than the month I was born.
Well, I have named one of my characters after my dad and mirrored the behavior of the two. That part was unintentional, and character “spoke” to me to keep going, so there’s that.
The book trailer, (you already know what it is) is to share a visual of the main characters, and so on. While looking back at the video, a thought hit me that I haven’t done an interview with my character, Caitlin like I’ve done with Paris and Trent. Hmm, we shall see.
So, tell us in the comments, what your first time publishing a novel was like? And if you haven’t publish yet, what are your thoughts about doing so and feelings about it?
Thank you for reading, and watching.
