Truth be told, I hoped Love Always, Kate would hit best seller's status. But let's face it, that's a tough order to fill, especially in the NA (new adult) category and this being a debut novel. I thought, "Maybe after it's been out for a year or so..."
My baby is only two weeks old. She's still little and vulnerable, and be that as it may, on her two week birthday, she exceeded my expectations!
#84 in New Adult
#84 in Inspirational!
Now, that all happened before I got up that morning, so I didn't get a screen shot of my baby blowing out her candles until later, when she dipped a little.
And thanks to all of you, she's hung in there on that best seller's list, the little baby that she is, on a playground filled with much bigger kids. You amazing readers have made my year!
Today, most of the marketing for a novel is left up to the author. Thanks to social media, this isn't that difficult to do. Just time consuming.
Less than three weeks ago, I signed with Limitless Publishing for my debut novel, The Spirit. (Which will be followed by The Body and The Soul.) Before that, I didn't have much of a social media presence as an author. But in that short amount of time, I've seen a huge increase in followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.
And it's all because of YOU!
Even without a cover, a number of you have added The Spirit to one of your shelves to read in the future, and I thank you for that. Thank you. Thank you!
I am dedicated to keeping my pages and blog up to date so you can know where I'm at in the publishing process.
I can't thank you enough for your support!
Kudos to you!
