GHOSTED – launch day!!!
It’s publication day for my new book ‘Ghosted’, and I couldn’t be more excited/nervous/proud I made it this far.
‘Ghosted’ has been available on pre-order for a month or so, and I’ve been peering around the curtains of the sales figures, holding my breath just in case I see a big fat zero! Thankfully, that’s not happened – and to all those people in France who pre-ordered the paperback, thanks. I’ve never sold many books there, so it’s been quite a surprise! One other thing I learned, Americans like paperbacks over ebooks. It’s been a revelation.
I did it!
So, today is the day. The day I can sit back, gasp and think OMG! I did it, I wrote another book! I didn’t think I could do it, but I did!
Writing Ghosted was a bit of a challenge. It almost didn’t happen. I hit a wall with various early drafts and had to scrap what I’d written several times. I’d always been happy with previous first chapters, so I’m not sure why I wasn’t able to get the flow of this one. I guess, I wanted it to be perfect, or something. Apparently, that’s unrealistic. I’m almost embarrassed to admit how long it took me to write this book.
With the help of a Cornerstones Consultancy course, tutors and editors that know how to nag me just right and beta readers who assured me things were better than I thought, the story came together.
I can’t tell you how relieved I am that it’s finally done. I’ll hold my breath a bit longer, I think, and see how the book is received before I go full-on party!
If you supported me with a pre-order – thanks. If you’re about to buy it – thanks too. If you’re wondering who this lad is with his gushing launch day post – thanks to you as well.
My new romantic comedy ‘Ghosted‘ is out today – though it’s nothing to do with ghosts and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. It’s a Christmas romance, set onboard a gay cruise. A romantic comedy to restore your faith in human nature. I’ll be talking more about it in the coming days. Sign up to my mailing list to win prizes, bookmarks, copies and score bonus content.
