Made For Us Pre-Orders
I remember when I started self-publishing how only traditionally published authors were allowed to have pre-order links on Amazon. I was soooooo envious. Sigh. Then, as time went on, the indie authors were allowed to get them. The only problem with that for me? I was one of those flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants writers and pretty much I published books on a whim. Spur of the moment. Whenever the urge struck. I would write a book, edit and publish within a month so a pre-order link wasn't really working for me.
Well now it is!
Now that I've slowed down and writing longer books that are being traditionally published - and don't even get me started on how much I am LOVING seeing my books in paperback in the stores! - all of my books go on pre-order about six months before they're released. It's a little weird seeing the book on all the sites and knowing that it won't be available for so long but I do enjoy seeing how many people are ordering a title because they want to make sure they have it on the release date.
I still do it all the time with my favorite authors. And when I do it way far in advance? It's like a nice little surprise when it pops up on my Kindle. It's like a little present and I think "Yeah, me!" for being on the ball and knowing how much I'm going to enjoy reading a new book.
But then again, who doesn't enjoy a new book, right?
So "Made for Us" will be out August 4th. SOOOOO much fun stuff is going to be happening with it! Besides the actual release of the book - which in itself is very exciting - I'll be hosting a release party on Facebook on August 3rd - you can join here: https://www.facebook.com/events/835345099883774/ and then I'll be doing a month-long scavenger hunt with author Sara Humphreys on Facebook that will lead up to her new release, "Brave the Heat" which will be released September 1st. It is all going to be a lot of fun and I hope to see tons of people at these events - and by see I mean your names on my computer on Facebook! Lol!
We are going to be giving away stuff at all of the events - signed books, swag, Amazon gift cards...you name it, we may very well be giving it away so you don't want to miss out! To join the scavenger hunt, go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1492072517751546/
