Launching a book is a big deal. Launching your first book is a bit terrifying. After lots of soul searching and research, I decided publishing independently was the best route for me. That means, I’m in control of all of the aspects of launching my book. From editing, to hiring a cover artist, to formatting, to getting the book out on the platforms I plan to sell on. It’s a long process – and it’s been a learning experience.
So far, I have completed the editing stage and the cover design stage. Next up, formatting so the book will be ready to upload. It’s getting closer and I couldn’t be more excited!
I haven’t set an exact date yet – which is one of the many perks of publishing independently – but it will be out in January.
It’s finally time to share the cover for my first novel, The Heir of Illaria. I am so excited to be sharing this. This is for the first book in the series and it will be published on Amazon in January. I’ll share the official release date very soon!
I can’t wait to share the cover for my first book in the Illaria Series with you all! I have a truly talented cover artist who worked hard to create a cover that is phenomenal! Next week I have some time off of work and I though that it would be the perfect time to share the cover with everybody. Keep your eyes peeled. Friday, December 23rd I’ll be sharing my cover!
Technically, I’ve already written my second book in the Illaria series. The problems was that after I finished it, I realized there was a gap in the story. I wanted to know what the characters were doing during that gap. I started writing a short story about Max and what he was up to during that time in between books. It was so much fun writing Max, that I decided it might need to be expanded. After some thought, outlining, and several sleepless nights, I figured I’d go for it. So now, book 2 will become book 3 and I’m currently working on the book that will go in-between them. The outline is done so it’s time to get writing. Twenty-One Pilots on the playlist – time to go!
