Campfire Stories is going to be published soon! Everything is complete including my new author biography. The group is entering the marketing part of the process.
Of course, I will be announcing all new information on my Facebook Page and Twitter account.
I’m feeling all sorts of emotions: surprised, happy, hopeful, and a little disappointed. First and foremost, I’m happy we were able to put this book together. Previously, I was worried about the project falling apart. I am also happy about everything I’ve learned and been able to accomplish. This has been a great experience. I hope the marketing end is just as educational and fun. I’ve gotten slightly more familiar with Mailchimp already. I hope there are lots of sales, that people like my work, and I gain readers.
The slight disappointment has nothing to do with the Campfire Stories project. I had wanted Tapestry published by the time Campfire Stories was published. I have fallen short of this goal. However, there is a silver lining.
Campfire Stories has taught me what goes into creating a book from start to finish. It took five people nearly a year. Granted, we were doing other things in our lives, but putting a book together is not as simple or easy in practice as it is in theory. I understand now why I have fallen short of my goals with Tapestry. They were steep goals. I will make better ones going forward.
I want to give a huge thank you to my Campfire Story partners:
I published this blog a couple weeks early. It was ready, and I thought it would be a good Valentine’s treat for my readers :).
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
