there are so many exciting moments that come with publishing... but for me, that is only ever because it means i am getting to share another story with you guys. i've honestly never bought the hype, and i wouldn't recommend it - the whole publishing, getting 'noticed' by people, getting talked about... it's all part of the word being spread, and it's great, but it's never why you do it, or at least it shouldn't be. it should always be about the story, and why you wrote it in the first place.
anyway, all that to say, this past week i experienced an exciting milestone in the journey with Worlds Beneath when the book went live on goodreads and amazon. one step closer to being in your hands... and that's cool. that's worth getting excited about.
i honestly don't like to talk about the book much, i like it to mean whatever it's going to mean to the reader in and of itself. i don't want readers to connect to 'me' but hopefully to themselves in the story. yes, Worlds Beneath means a heck of a lot to me... it's a journey, it's a way of life for me, and it has a lot of meaning, but what gets me stoked is to hear someone say that it has meaning for them.
i filmed a video just so i could say 'in person' how much you mean to me - and also a little about how much adding the book on goodreads affects Worlds Beneath. <3
so all that said, if you have a moment, could you add World Beneath to your want-to-read shelf on Goodreads? it would be a MASSIVE help & mean so, so much to me.
add it HERE.
you can also snag Worlds Beneath for a special pre-release price right now on amazon. and, as i said in the video, you'll find it on your kindle the moment it comes out. be an early adopter. ;)
in other news, i'm back from a month long surf/camping trip and warm days have finally returned to good old vermont, along with long writing days & many cups of coffee and vitamin b12. funny story: i spent half the trip with a broken phone which was honestly a blessing in disguise because now i may just write an entire post about why you should throw your cell phone out le window and go listen to the birds and see what they have to say to you. that's the real twitter. ;)
SO TELL ME, are you working on a WIP novel? or any other exciting projects? HAVE YOU READ THE BLOOD RACE*? and if so, do you plan on reading Worlds Beneath? let's chat <3 i love you guys.
* if not, here, have the first 9 chapters.
