Good luck and happy reading!
Huge thank you to the awesome co-hosts for the June 4 posting of the IWSG C. Lee McKenzie, Tracy Jo, Melanie Schulz, and LG Keltner! Special shout out to our captain, Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh. Make sure you visit them and as many of the support group as you can.
I’m not sure if I’m actually looking for advice. I’ve heard it all. I feel the need to share. In hopes that others have had this particular issue.
The night before my release, I posted on a FB Group how I didn’t think I would need a peep talk prior to my book release, but later that night, I couldn’t sleep and it seemed like I was seconds away from an anxiety attack.
What was I so scared of, well, no sales. That’s what scared me. What if not one person bought my book. Ridiculous, I know.
Well, the first day went better then expected, but now I’m depressed again.
Anyone else experience the Book Release Blues? What did you do to get over it?
I also wanted to thank everyone who supported me during the release of my debut novel, Another New Life. I need to remind myself it’s not every day a person get’s to realize a dream. I am so grateful.
