So…I have news! The edits for All of This are FINISHED. That means there’s no more rewording, rewriting, revising, or re-whatevers. It’s all done. The next step doesn’t involve me as an author, as the book is with the design team. They’re currently making it look like an actual book.
This author is currently experiencing a case of the crazies because:
1) She’s now an actual author.
2) People are super close to reading her words.
3) There’s no turning back.
4) There’s a possibility I stress-drink coffee. Caffeine is wild stuff, y’all.
While all of this is happening to All of This, I’m thinking through ways to market the story because the book people tell me this is necessary.
AND! I’m making little teaser quotes to share leading up to the book release. It’s fun because I’m pulling everything from serious quotes to random quotes to what-was-I-thinking-when-I-wrote-that quotes.
That’s what I’m doing, but what can you do? Word of mouth travels far (I grew up in Small-town, Southern USA, so I know this full well), so talking about the book release and sharing quotes on your social media accounts and in real life will help this book gain some traction. Also sharing my blog posts will help get it all out there because I’ll have links and bonus content on the blog.
There’s also prayer, which has been a huge part of this process from the first time I sat down at my laptop with a tiny “what-if?” idea. Praying for this project and the people it will potentially reach will mean more to me than I can even express.
I promise to do my best to keep you all updated! Before long, I’ll be able to share the back-cover stuff (which will really introduce you to my girl and her world), behind-the-scenes info, and other things currently chilling on my to-do list.
But for now, here’s a quote for you. Know that your support is a blessing, whether you’ve followed this journey for years, or you’re just now jumping in.
