Release Week Jitters (LTtS)

I wanted to write and post this earlier in the week when Love Through the Storms was released, but alas, sometimes things happen.  Part of the reason was simply because I didn’t know what to say, and honestly, I still don’t.

So, like with Something New & Unexpected, I was nervous before and on Tuesday.  But this time I had, and still have, double the nerves.  With SN&U, I was nervous because it was my first book, and while I haven’t done a very good job, I tried not to have many expectations or put too much pressure on myself.  With LTtS, that’s a different story.  With it being my second book, I feel the overall pressure for it to do well.  And then there’s the pressure I put on myself for it to do well.  With sales for SN&U not being the greatest and the lack of reviews, written or otherwise, I’m hoping having LTtS out will help.  Will having the entire series available lead more people to buy and read both books?  Only time will tell, but I hope so.

There is one thing I’ve decided to do differently this time around, and that’s not check the sales reports as often.  When I first released SN&U, I checked the reports almost daily.  After a few weeks, however, seeing the lack of sales, I started to get down on myself.  So, to hopefully prevent that, I’m only going to check them once a week or once every couple weeks.

Well, that’s it for now.  Have a great weekend!  Until next time…
