Pushing Publish

How to Save a Life  was uploaded last night.  After a few struggles, meaning I skipped a step on Create Space, and then found a word usage problem, I had to resubmit and finally it was live last night.  Today I started a book promotion to give it away for free.  I arrived at my office early and started to reach out to any of the websites that allow you, as an author, to list your book promotion for free.  Wow – there are a lot of sites out there that will let you list it for a fee – sometimes a large fee!  Really?  I think I should start a second business and start one of those websites!

Today I keep my dashboard up as I watch people to continue to download it on KDP.  It is equal parts terrifying and exhilarating.  Will they like it?  Will they like the story?  What happens if I get a lot of bad reviews?

I’m working on converting something I wrote back in 1995 into format for KDP.  I think I am re-titling it to When We Meet Again.  I will need to have a professional create cover art for that, and that process excites me as well.  I would have done that for  How to Save a Life, but after paying a tuition bill to the University of Maine for one son, and a major car repair (stupid potholes) – I’m squeaking a long.

Thank you if you have read How to Save a Life and that is how you came to visit my blog!
