MyCam Update Week 1

MyCam Update Week 1

I share a lot in this update video, so I figure it’s only right to summarize.

  1.  I’ve got a new office.
  2.  Formatting of the ebook was harder than expected, but I got it done, thankfully.
  3.  Free ISBN freak-out. I was on lulu.com completing the process for uploading the book and got to the step where I was given my free ISBN. It really hit me then that this is actually happening and my dream is coming to fruition.
  4.  “Choose the Cover” where everyone will get the chance to vote on the cover that I will use for my book is still open. The poll can be found here: https://mayasp8.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/choose-the-cover/
    Voting closes October 9, 2014.
  5.  Be following on instagram @luv2rite1922 to be the first person to see the cover. Cover Reveal October 10, 2014.
  6. The prices for the book are as follows: Paperback- $9.99; Ebook: $2.99. All sales are final and there will not be any refunds unless there is an extenuating circumstance which will need to be discussed with me before a refund is awarded.
  7.  There are 42 days left until November 14th and Last Look Back’s official release.
  8.  Should there be a pre-order? Let me know if you would like to order the book early.The book is ready, I just don’t know if I am, eek! I’ll have to work on it and you’ll know by the end of the weekend what I decide.
    There will be incentives for pre-order. Watch until the end of the video to find out. Psst, the incentives are at 10:48, if you just want to fast forward. I completely understand.
    Woo! That was a lot. As always, thank you all for watching. And thank you for your support, I love you guys.

This is Actually Happening

This is Actually Happening

Yesterday, I was looking at the cover design my sister created for Last Look Back. (She’s awesome by the way, check out her blog thejunoesque.com for more of her designs.) I’m looking at the cover and I’m like this is actually happening. In less than two months, I am releasing my first book. THIS IS HAPPENING!!! I always like to update you all with my feelings especially with my writing journey and the book coming out very soon. With these posts, I try to find a picture that fully encompasses my current feelings, but I just couldn’t find one that said everything that I was going through. So, today we’re going to shake things up a little and I’m going to tell you all how I’m currently feeling through the use of gifs. If you happen to not know what gifs are, they’re moving pictures and they will show you the exact range of emotions that come with a Book Launch.

And now…

I look at the calendar and see that November 14th will be here very quickly.

I hide waiting for the reactions.

Crazy as it sounds, but I’ll probably do it again.

Because writing novels is the best because I get to share my work with you.

The End.

 

That’s my story. I hope you like it. Now, it’s announcements time:

September 22, 2014: “Choose the Cover” – I’m torn about which is the best Cover Design for the Last Look Back Cover, so I’m going to have you all vote which is the better cover. I won’t tell you which one I like the best until after voting. Voting ends October 9, 2014.

October 10, 2014: “Cover Reveal” – On my instagram @luv2rite1922, I will be revealing which design I’m picking. Be following me, to be one of the first to find out which cover it will be.

And finally…

From October 1, 2014 until the Book Launch, I will be doing a Promo Storm. What’s a Promo Storm, you may ask? It’s my version of creating buzz for my new book. For 40+ days, I will be posting about all things Last Look Back. I’ll be giving you all a behind the scenes look into a lot of the writing choices I’ve made and interesting things that have happened on  my writing journey. By November 14, you will know a lot more about Last Look Back than you probably would ever want to know. You’re welcome.

So, those are my announcements and gif story. I hope you all are getting excited. I can’t believe this is actually happening. 🙂
