Once Broken.....A Novel.....What?!?!?!?!?
Well, it's been a whirlwind kind of week!
Copies of 'Once Broken' were safely delivered allowing me to get it in the hands of readers!
Yup, the release date was June 1st, then, today we had the official launch in my home town at their Spring Fling event. Kinda crazy, and a bit surreal.
Along with the release comes a bit of the running around that comes with it, getting it, physically, into McNally Robinson, filling out all of the appropriate paperwork that goes with it. Getting a poster made for upcoming events, getting the first copies shipped off to different parts of the continent, getting the word out on social media, etc.
Thankfully, my hubby is always supportive and pretty dang forgiving about me having to play hooky at the shop through it all.
It's been exciting, a bit nerve-wracking, and, in the best possible way, exhausting. Please forgive me if these ramblings are a bit short and maybe, lack a bit of luster.
The upcoming week will include some shop time, (month end and such) working on the next steps of marketing "Once Broken", which will include an event in the Kindersley Mall on the 10th.
For those on different continents, that are so kindly interested in purchasing a copy, I would encourage the ebook version available on Amazon and Kobo if at all possible, as the cost of shipping to some of these places is pretty crazy.
I hate to write and run, but I'm functioning on fumes and if I keep writing, the gibberish will be unbearable.
Thank you all so much for your ongoing support. It means more than I can express.
Until next time................
May to find it within, to take the steps you need to take, to hold a dream in your hand.
May you see it through, bring it to fruition, eliminate the 'what ifs', put your footprints in the sand.
May you enter the adventure without expectation of outcome, it will be what it should be, without your consent.
May you see that the greatest part of the reward lives within the journey, leave your guts on the floor, every effort spent.
May you see that there is power in the vulnerability required in the baring of your soul.
May you see that, even under the microscopic eyes of those who don't approve, you remain completely whole.
May you find it within, to take the steps you need to take to hold a dream in your hand.
My you see it through, bring it to fruition, eliminate the 'what ifs', put your footprints in the sand.
