It’s been just one week since Winell Road was released into the wild, and what a week it’s been.
I’ve tweeted and Facebooked about it as much as time would allow, I’ve received a warming flow of wonderful words congratulating me, I’ve arranged several guest posts, interviews and reviews to go live over the coming months, and to top it all off, I’ve already received five 4 and 5 star ratings on Goodreads. What a way to round off week one! If it’s downhill from here on, so be it. I hope not, but if that’s to be the case, I will always remember this week – my first being a published author.
And the best thing, I get to do this all again when the paperback comes out later in the year! Yippee!
I have so many people to thank, but in particular I’d like to send out an enormous hug to E.L. Wicker for supporting me every step of the way and sharing in my excitement. Also Christina Banach and Sarah Davis for cheering me on behind the scenes – you guys don’t know how much your words mean to me. And special thanks to everyone else who has shown me congratulation-love!
I have heaps of other things planned to help get Winell Road out there into the hands of as many children (and adults) as I can. I will eventually be posting reviews by children on my author website, which is definitely still under construction. But, if you’d like to help by reading and reviewing, please let me know.
On a completely different and even more important note, I’ve donated a full manuscript edit to help raise much needed money for Nepal. Now I just hope it will get lots of juicy bids. Honestly, this package is worth lots of money, so whatever you can spare will, not only go a long way in assisting with the crisis, but means you will be grabbing yourself a bargain. Just go here and bid! I’ve already been over to ebay, splashing the cash on as many items as I can, please please do the same.
I’ve had plenty of other exciting things going on this week, things I really hope work out the way I’d like them to – but more on that another day!
For now, thank you all for being part of my first week.
