The first three months of self-releasing I really didn't plan anything I did. I just sort of followed a crazy release schedule and sent my work out. I really debated releasing this book. It's clean romance and the market is so complicated now. I didn't know if there was even a place for it.
Last weekend I was chatting with some gal pals and they were telling me I needed to change the cover. I admit, not a very good cover. But this book I released because it's special to me, I didn't think it would sell, and it definitely falls into my early phase of making mistakes. One of my pals texted me last night: Imagine how well it would be doing if it had a nice cover.
I wish my mom didn't have dementia and could understand when I call her to tell her, "Mom The Signature made a best selling list."
It's funny. No matter how old we are, in all moments we still want to run first to our mothers and say I did it.
