The 'Bittersweet' launch was terrific.
The e-books are launched, the print proof is corrected and back to the publisher and all seem to be well on the way. Now I have time to get to all those short stories and start floundering around with the ideas the back of my brain is playing with for a novel. I always hate this time because my creative head feels empty and bereft of my Bryce and Bea and the Northrops from 'Bittersweet' and I am panicked that I might not find another character with a good story to tell.
I must also get ready for a PR sales push for all our Writer's Choice books. I hope I can get enough places with the newsletters for an end of April, the beginning of May, push. I am also really looking forward to the April 5th party in the library. It's going to be fun if I can get everyone there. The wine and fruit punch are ordered, savouries and sweet nibbles being experimented with, I am enjoying tasting them! I just want a bit of fun rather than a push to buy the books. The books will be there but we will be a rowdy celebration of Writer's Choice's fourth year and the final -at last -publication of 'Bittersweet'.
The tiles are down on my archgola floor, and the tables and chairs are ready to be put in. My kind helpers from church who made a roster and pop in each day are all counting on a house warming party held out there. I think it's a great idea!
