… I should say Release Week! THE EXPATRIATES release happened over this past weekend while I was in NY on vacation. Not being at my desk for the release of my first book made for an interesting time. I wasn’t able to blast the interwebs other than facebook, and for the most part, was out and about too much to obsess and freak out over all of it.
All in all, I have to say that being away made for a rather pleasant experience. I will make a note of that for when my next book comes out. ;)
It was super exciting to see it hit #8 in the Children’s> Fantasy & Magic> Coming of Age category the night it went live. It was even more exciting to see posts from people saying they had bought and were reading it! I saw a photo of it on my friend’s kindle. Surreal. I can totally see how authors can get wrapped up in constantly checking rank numbers throughout the day! I admit nothing.
Distribution is underway! The ebook is available on Amazon (kindle) and Smashwords (other formats) and soon will go live at Barnes and Noble, Apple iBooks, Google Play, Kobo, and other amazing book selling and lending places.
The paperback is being proofed and will be available at Amazon and Createspace, and I will have signed copies available for sale here on my website.
