Goddamn what a fucking thrill it is the first time you see your front cover! Especially for your debut novel!
So now I’m back to that old dilemma, when do I release ‘Guns’? I’d initially planned to release it as soon as it was ready. Then I decided – as it’s Book 1 of a series – to wait until Book 2 was written and Book 3 on the way. Now… well, now I want it out there because it’s so very pretty! Also, I’m a realist. I know I won’t make any money or get a lot of reads on Book 1… probably not 2 or 3 either, so does it really matter when I release this series?
Maybe the decision is moot anyhow. I have beta-reading lined up for ‘Guns’, and then likely more editing, so while that happens, perhaps I’ll have cracked on enough with Book 2 to release it (Guns). I am already on Chapter 3 of Book 2… 3 of about 50 though!
Much to muse upon.
PS: The cover in question shall be revealed at a later date… most likely when I’ve decided on that illusive release date!
