The Excitement of a Pre-Order
It doesn’t feel real yet. I know it should because my book has been available for pre-order for a couple weeks now. It’s my first book ever, and been a insanely exciting ride . If you read my first post, Deciding to Write then you know I made a decision to write some books for myself a few years back. Never in a million years did I think I would be releasing them to the public. With the help and support of friends, mentors, and contacts in the great world of the internet I have managed to put together not one book, but an entire series that I am in the process of releasing. It’s seriously insane.
The story of Jason and Christy is very close to my heart since they were some of the first characters to ever chatter away in my head. Seeing their story of a second chance love come to life on the pages is Unbelievable. See what I did there?? 😉 Anyway, all corniness aside I was shocked when I woke up the morning after my book went up on Amazon and saw 3 pre-orders. Some wonderful people managed to find my book and they chose to buy it! If I were the jump up and down type, I would have been jumping up and down. Instead I took pictures with my phone, which made no sense but I felt like I needed to document the experience.
Christy’s story is a tough one, she has been through a truly awful experience but to see her come out of her shell, learn to trust, and eventually love again is was a lot of fun. Writing for me includes some of my own person experiences. Sometimes it’s a feeling, or a difficult conversation. Writing these thing can be hard. It’s tough when your characters are learning to love again, when they are trying to overcome their own demons which may be the same the author experienced many years ago. It’s all par for the course when writing realistic stories and I hope it comes through for those of you who read it.
My hope is that all of you who chose to read the story of these two, will love them as much as I do. Make sure you head over to Amazon and pre-order your copy now!
Thank you all for your support.
