March 14th is fast approaching!
I can’t even believe that it’s less than a week now ’til ‘The Album’ will be released. So much has happened in the last week, I’ve been frantically writing additions to the sequel. For new subscribers, it tells the story of Heather and Harrison and is called ‘The Wedding’. It’s currently at 35,359 words now, but I spent quite a bit of time working on the release of ‘The Album’ last week so had less time to write this week.
I got back the edited manuscript from my editor, Dana, last Saturday. I reviewed that and sent it off to my proof reader, Mark, on Sunday. He got the proof read back to me today and I reviewed that and got it back to him today for his wife, Lorna, to do the book formatting for me. It’s really nice getting feedback from people, Mark said that the book was very well written and reminded him of his days editing a music magazine, so that was nice!
Basically, we are on track for release next Saturday! Meanwhile, I’ve locked in a narrator for the audiobook and am waiting on a response as to timeframes for that to be recorded. I’m very excited to hear the book read by a proper narrator. I user a text-to-speech function to listen to it now (has been helpful for editing, the TTS robot gives no leeway for errors and it’s very obvious when you hear them!). A proper human being will be much nicer to listen to, though!
Remember, you can pre-order ‘The Album’ on Amazon Kindle now by clicking this link! It will be available in print and on other platforms from next Saturday, though.
If that link tells you that it’s not available for sale, you’ll need to search on your local Amazon store. I know that readers in Australia have had to do that.
Too hot to handle!
This week’s BookFunnel promotion is the March Racy Reads promotion and, well, how do I put this nicely? Proceed with caution…preferably with ready access to a cold shower! There are two hundred super sexy books in this promotion.
What are you doing? Go get them by clicking this link!
I owe you an apology, I’m sorry!!!
Last week, I told you about the steamy romance samples promotion and promptly included the wrong link!
Major props to the eagle-eyed readers who noticed this. I’m so sorry for my oversight, I copied and pasted the link to the preview page instead of the live page.
The correct link is right here.
On that embarrassing note, I shall end this newsletter. I’m off to continue writing ‘The Wedding’. There’s some really interesting key points in the book that I’m about to get to, and I’m excited to write them!
I hope you’ve all had a brilliant weekend and that you’re as excited about the release of ‘The Album’ next week as I am…okay, I’ll take you being even a quarter as excited as I am! 😉
