This week I had two FIRSTS to lead up to next month’s release.
My very first radio interview as an author!!
The arrival of my bookmarks.
Now I have to say, Dianne Barker with Spirit FM was so sweet and eased my nervousness with her kindness. Interestingly enough, about five years ago, Dianne and I had enjoyed lunch together in Johnson CIty, TN and discussed the aspect of trying to get published. For her, it was an attempt to reenter the publishing world. For me, it was a dream of finally getting published.
Funny how we had the opportunity to reconnect after all those years for this interview. I’m in constant awe of God’s weaving past moments and present ones together in surprising ways.
Then THE BOOKMARKS CAME!!!
Since my personal writing funds are in short supply at present, I had to design my own bookmarks, which is a daunting task. When they arrived on Tuesday, I was so tickled with the outcome – and they provided the first ‘tangible’ momentum of the publishing journey!
So…the countdown has begun for the release of The Thorn Bearer!
As a writer, what are some things you’ve done to prepare for a book release?
