One month to go – Eeep!

15 May

Yes, I’m still alive. I was just following the principle of it being better to remain silent and thought a fool than open my mouth (or write a new post on nothing) and remove all doubt. 😉

So, it’s ONE MONTH until Bonnie’s Story: A Blonde’s Guide to Mathematics is released! Yes, I am excited… and hopefully not the only one who is.

To celebrate the release I am having another book launch. This time in my lovely local Adelaide Hills at the Mount Barker Community Library. The event is free to attend, but as they’re putting on refreshments they’d like a rough idea of numbers, so if you can make it please book here.

I hope to see you there. As it’s an eBook I can’t exactly sign it for you, but can sign one of my cards. Plus, once Bonnie’s Story is up on Amazon, I plan on signing up with Authorgraph and so hope to be able to provide a cute little e-signature that way. Watch this space, erm blog, to find out more.

It’s also lovely to see some action with Bonnie’s Story at Goodreads. So far the reviews have been fantastic, keep them coming! Remember, I’m always open to constructive criticism. So if you felt it sucked, explain yourself or be seen as a sour puss sock puppet.

I’ve also made some pre-sales on Bonnie’s Story and yes, you only have one month left to get it at the discounted pre-sale price of $4 AU. So head over to Hague Publishing and buy one now! I am really touched by the pre-sales… even if I feel they came from me asking people to buy a copy on my birthday – and they did! 🙂

What else can I share right now? Well, my latest manuscript Isis, Vampires and Ghosts – Oh My! has already gathered some interest by two small indie publishers I’ve shown it to (yes, talks of contracts already!) And so, on some sage advice, I am now doing the Literary Agent door knock again. This is going to be a slow process as they get a lot of enquiries and I now must show some patience and wait for their response. In my usual super stellar positive attitude, I am indeed expecting more rejections. Hey, I’m called an emerging author for a reason – I need to push my way through all the rest and emerge at the top waving the hardest and yelling the loudest to be seen. Simple.

But if there is a Literary Agent who accidentally stumbled onto this post and is reading it… send me a note. I really am a published author now and really do have publishers already offering me contracts on my latest work.

Okay, that’s it for now. Really excited about the month to come as I don’t know what’s going to happen. I really don’t expect much, but am still looking forward to see if I flop or fly!

Until next time,

Janis.
