There’s a storm a’ brewin’. And it’s my anxiety. No matter how many times I have survived release day (three other times, to be exact), the roll-out process makes me a bit nuts. I have so much to do. So little time. And so much stomach acid. (If I pop several more purple pills, maybe I’ll be able to drink hi-test coffee again. A girl can hope.)
Some aspects of release day I can control: social media announcements, an e-mail flurry, blog tour line-ups, etc.
Some aspects of release day I cannot control: number of reviews on Amazon, amount of sales generated, amount of times Amazon suggests my newest book to readers.
I am a type “A” personality. Maybe that’s why my “day job” is as a lawyer. The world of contracts is a world I can control quite a bit. The world of writing? Not so much.
The great freefall that is fiction writing can be quite a turbulent journey. What keeps me jumping out of the proverbial airplane is my deep love for writing romance. It’s because I make my characters plunge into their relationships, that I must bravely plunge into a relationship, too – one with my readers.
The best thing I can do before release week is to remember the number one rule – not only of writing but for life itself – breathe!
What do you do to prepare for something big?
JOCKEYING FOR YOU will be released this Wednesday, September 28, 2016! Amazon pre-order buy link http://amzn.to/2c8Hi5t
Jake Carter is on a mission—to prove his family wrong. He may have bought a troubled horse, but he’s hired Ryder Hannon, a “horse whisperer,” to get his horse back on track. She’s more than just a trainer to him, she’s the woman he’s been looking for.
Ryder Hannon, a thoroughbred horse trainer, has a big problem—fighting her fear of racing again. Her emotional scars run deeper than her physical ones. But her romantic feelings towards handsome, uber-rich, stable owner Jake Carter is a bigger problem. Is Jake truly in love with her or is he using her to get back at his smug family?
When Jake’s jockey gets injured, he wants Ryder to race. He knows deep down she wants to live up to her family’s legacy. So why does she keep fighting him—and her destiny—so hard?
