I finally designed covers for The Distance Duet that I love! Graphic design is not my strong point, so this was a bit of a struggle. Luckily I am a little more well-versed in book formatting so, design-wise, I am over the tallest hurdle.
I am making progress on the total rewrite of Desire and Social Distance, and have paused marketing efforts for the most part until I am done writing. I took some advice from a marketing workshop on Amazon algorithms and am not doing a preorder for book one. I am doing no paid promotions, blog tours, or anything. I’m launching quietly with a tiny street team and one or two ARC readers, and maybe a reader group party. Until I publish book two, I’m not really going to worry that much about sales.
I am thrilled that I decided to do the rewrite. The story is so much better, and Elena and Greyson are so much more believable, sympathetic characters with a love story that I believe is truly unique and unforgettable, and that I can’t wait for you to read.
I’ve been writing this book a long time, almost two years, and it’s tempting to get frustrated and impatient with myself. But then I stop enjoying the writing. And after that–what is the point of all this again? So I am giving myself grace, and hope you, Potential Future Reader, will too.
