The book launched on 1/31…so it has been just over a week. I am so pleased with the response…and gratified by the insightful reviews and ratings.
Now on to the Blog Tour…
But before that; if you are an author…particularly one writing a series…one of the greatest difficulties is getting the previous book and the writing experience out of your system. You still are feeling the emotions of the climax and the denouement. You are savoring the “cute” twists and turns you employed.
You are not ready to move on.
May I recommend a blog tour?
Yes…a blog tour. I imagine few, if any, author has ever considered a blog tour as therapy. Think about it. Writing guest posts, extracting portions of the book, and preparing character interviews are remarkable ways to put the work into perspective. You have to separate yourself in order to offer a “God’s Eye View” of your book.
That is therapeutic because you begin to detach from the intimacy of writing and start to wrap yourself in the mantle of reader. You get your nose away from the canvas in the studio and start to look at the work hanging in a gallery.
Thus…I am now in that interval period where I am looking back at The Exile: The Countess Visits Longbourn before looking ahead to The Avenger: Thomas Bennet and a Father’s Lament.
