Just a little over a week after the debut of my psychological thriller, A Flash of Red, and my excitement is still at stratospheric levels. Thrilling news just keeps descending from the sky in quick succession.
Here’s my mental ticker-tape of the last 7 days:
Your debut novel is out–go celebrate!
You’re an official member of the Crime Writer’s Association! (celebration continues; Christmas cookies are broken out of their sweet slumber in the freezer and enjoyed by the family)
3. People are reviewing your novel, and they like it. A lot! (celebration shifts to wine in front of the fireplace with hubby, as it’s after 5 somewhere and the children are watching The 100)
4. Your box of books for distributing to libraries, local bookstores, and the like arrives. You hold your finished book in your hands for the first time. (and let your pit-bull, Jasper, get his paws on it too, as you are convinced that, if he had opposable thumbs, he’d be a writer too)
5. My tour with Sage’s Blog Tours set off this week with several stops, including a review from the head reader herself, Sage. And what did she think?
“Reading this novel was a wild ride.”
“I found this novel to be fascinating. . .”
(high-fives from my entire family, hubby and kiddos, ensues. Jasper, alas, due to his aforementioned lack of thumbs, must make do with a muzzle-snuggle)
My cup runneth over this week. . .Thank you to all of my readers for your support. I’m thrilled (pun totally intended) that you are enjoying A Flash of Red. When you get a chance, make sure to get your review up on Amazon and my Goodreads page–it is a huge help in getting other readers interested in trying a new author.
Stay tuned for more contests and giveaways over the next few weeks–the fun continues!
