I wanted to publish Followed, my second novel, in the worst way by the end of August. I had the cover designed in February! Then, I realized it was just silly to rush a book launch for a book that just isn’t quite ready. Slow and steady is the way to go when you are an indie publisher.
I think it is well worth the wait to make sure that a novel has been thoroughly read by 2-3 beta readers before sending it off for that final edit. My peer editor has promised to have Followed read and commented on by the end of August, so I am predicting Followed’s book launch for early October to be on the safe side. 🙂 I am so excited!
In the meantime, I’ve been dabbling in a few of my other writings – my third and fourth novels as well as another short story I’ve started on. It can be hard for me to focus on one project at a time sometimes. It’s fun to go back and forth.
Stay tuned for the cover reveal later this week. 😀
