Releasing One More Kiss was not a random act or one I approached with delusion. It's a puzzle piece that had to be out there for my fictional universe to be complete. I never expected to have a spectacular release with this book. I told my author friends that weeks ago up to the day I hit release. This book is going to lay there for a while, but that's as expected. It's a necessary step in what I am building.
So Sunday I released. The books has been performing pretty much as I expected it to. And while my author pals are sweet, please for me: Snap out of it! Stop asking me if I'm OK. Stop asking me what my PA thinks...Have you really been in my life for nearly a year and never realized everything I do has purpose to it?
I love that people worry, are concerned, and want every one of my releases to be sunrise and flowers. But that's not realistic. And that is not even part of the plan. Well, not my plan. I am amused by the people out there who are chattering away happily that this books is not performing spectacular, that it hasn't run straight to list on release day like my last three releases. Yes, I know who you are. I hear everything. Everyone loves to tattle to a grandmother. I have only one response to that: Have you really been in my life for nearly a year and never realized everything I do has purpose to it?
I am very much thrilled with having another piece of my fictional universe out there. I am one step closer to what is decidedly not a random plan. Will readers love it? I dunno know. But life is good if you let it be. So stop worrying. It is very wonderful that so many of your do care for me, but don't worry for me, go write!
I wish you Peace.
