I have a book releasing today.
(Excuse me a moment while I bask in the glow of Release Day.)
Over the course of my career, I’ve had a lot of release days, and one thing I know is that they are aptly named. Because I truly am releasing my book out into the wild. I’ve tended it, nurtured it, and tried to make sure it has evolved into the best book version of itself, but now I have very little say in how well it survives in the world. It’s off on its own, going forth to either live a quiet life or make a huge splash.
I’ve had books that turned out to have big celebrity-style personalities who ended up all over the place, and other books that are shy and liked to hang around closer to home. Books that never seemed to find their way in their brave new world, and books that slid right into their new book life and kept chugging along.
ICYMI, I talk about Release Days and Book Personalities in my most recent column over at Frolic! Check it out!
