Forgive me. It’s been seven days since I’ve confessed posted.

I haven’t posted a lot because getting ready for my FB party really took a lot out of me. I had so much to do to get ready for it. I’m still trying to figure out if it was worth it. I think so, mostly because it was a lot of fun, and several people attending the party bought Hearts of Evil, which was the book that the party was all about. But I haven’t been able to sustain the sales. It got up to #50 in a category, but then it fell away after the party. It has 1 4-star review and 3 5-star reviews, and I know at least three of the reviews came from people at the party. So we’ll see how this book does. I still would like to do a FB party for my next release. I have to try at least twice, right?

Now, on to my update. I wrote 720 words on Tuesday and 1360 words today, for a total of 2080 words so far this week. I seem to be able to write more words at lunch here at work than in the evenings, and I think it has a lot to do with the fatigue factor. So I might try doing a little more of that. We’ll see how that works out.

How are YOU doing?

I’ve missed a couple of check-ins, but I’ve been concentrating on my Facebook release party for Hearts of Evil. That happened last night, and it was a LOT of fun. I didn’t know what to expect, but I think it went extremely well. If any of you have any questions about how to do a release party, let me know. There was a lot of conversation. I had all my questions in a Word document so I could just copy/paste them onto the page. I had all my prizes numbered so I would know which prize went with which question. But carrying on multiple conversations for four hours absolutely wore me out! I never dreamed I would be so tired. My husband brought me a Diet Coke and my medicine when it was time. All I had for dinner was corn chips and sugar free candy. LOL. Will I do this again with my next release? Probably. I had some book sales that I’m pretty sure came from the party attendees. I know some of them did. And it was fun. And maybe by the time the next one rolls around, hubby will be back to work and I can afford some better prizes. Although, I think everyone enjoyed the keychains and book thongs marks. Kait knows about the thongs, LOL.

So…it’s time to get back to writing Fire Wizard. I really hope I can keep the momentum going on this one. I already have a cover model lined up for a photo shoot in May, so I’m excited about that.

Hey, it’s snowing again! I’m taking a snow day today! 🙂

I missed both Wednesday’s and Sunday’s ROW80 check in. I got in almost 2,000 words, but the rest of the time I’ve spent trying to get ready for the book release party. I never dreamed so much work went into these things. I just hope I’m ready. I have the questions ready. I have the prizes ready. I have PICTURES of the prizes ready. I have 39 people who say they are coming to the party. Of course, I know that sometimes things come up, so not everyone will be there. But I’m hoping to have a decent turn-out. So won’t you please pop in for awhile? The party lasts for 4 hours, from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST. If you don’t want to participate in the prize drawings, just come and say hi. 🙂

Oh, by the way, the book is live on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble.
