Well, I figure every author is allowed one Mulligan. This is my Mulligan. When you are releasing one book a month, one must stay vigilant to all the moving parts on the schedule. Deadline to get to the editor. Deadline to get to the formatter. Deadline to schedule release blitz. Deadline to schedule a blog tour. If you don't pay heed to the timeline, the world crashes and burns, and life as you know as an author is unattainable. And that's what happened this month. Sort of grandma brain creating a comedy of errors.
First, scheduling my last release on or about the due date of my grandson(definitely not one of the wiser things I've done). Then scheduling the releasing for the 3rd Affair without End Book, during a time I'd be traveling to be with daughter and having the darn blog tour for The Girl of Tokens and Tears on the week of the new release. Not smart Susan. Not smart Susan. I've missed all my appointments(edit), and now my books are like airplanes hoovering an airport waiting for permission to land. And while I'm what editor's call an easy edit because my work is 100% final when they receive it and only needs copy edit, I now have to wait in line because I missed my appointment.
So this is Susan's March Madness. I've messed up my own schedule. There is no one to blame. It was me, it was me. I had a giant Granny Brain Fart. So March is my Mullligan and I hope you 'll forever me.
As for One Long Kiss....It's coming. It's coming. I got the writing done by not sleeping the 9 days I was with my daughter and grandson in Indy. And I'm just going to release it during the finishing of the 3rd Half Shell book, The Girl of Diamonds and Rust. No release blitz. No blog tour. Just releasing and letting you know. And it will all work out. Right? But no banner change today. And no banner change this week, because I screwed up my own schedule and I have a blog tour for another book going on this week. Grrr... maybe too many moving parts for an old girl, but I'd be a liar if I said it wasn't fun trying to keep up with my favorite young authors. Release. Release. Release. That's Indy world even for a grandma.
As ever I wish you Peace.
OH and the first two books of the Affair without End Series is on 99cents Countdown Still. See I did do something right this week.
