Is there anyone in this galaxy who doesn't know I have a new book out today? The tour was really fun, I met some new people, and we had a ton of interaction. The pre-sale period is over, they delivered today and you can simply buy a copy now. Those of you with Kindle Unlimited can read it for free.
At the risk of irritating everyone, you can check out The Playground at this link.
I'm so grateful for everyone who added it on Goodreads, bought a copy in the pre-sale, and hosted a tour spot. I'm also grateful for everyone who reblogged or shared the posts across social media. I'm thrilled about everyone who stopped and left us a comment.
I thought I might write out the whole book of heroes who loaned me their blog space. That isn't particularly good blogging, so I'll just thank my hosts again. If any of you can use my blog space, please let me know.
I'm extremely grateful for my beta readers. They spotted things that really tightened up the story. As writers, we get so close to a project that we can't see everything. Fresh eyes really help with the fine tuning.
It was a ton of work, and most of the posts were written by request. These include the Lisa visits, and several where the host challenged me to something different. Some of the items were pre-written, but even those had to be written at some time.
The good news is that these posts are saved on iCloud. In a couple of months, I can run them out with a tour provider I use, and they'll be fresh and new on those sites.
I'm tired, I'm pretty darned happy, and I'm excited for what the future holds for this book. Hopefully, the reviews will come too.
For my next amazing stunt, I'm part way through researching a different kind of ad campaign. I'll probably run an Amazon campaign too. I need to make some better promotional images to use on Twitter and Facebook. I need to submit my story to a review site or two. This stuff will make up my next task list.
Something tells me I need a day off in there somewhere first. My rotating day off is Wednesday this week, and maybe I'll just pick away at my short story for a few hours. Or take a nap, a nap sounds pretty good.
