On the one hand, I'm so excited that my book comes out Monday! I've been waiting my whole (albeit young) life for this moment! I'm going to be a published author, it's going to be the first of many. This is great!
On the other hand, I'm kind of like Sheldon. My book comes out Monday. Am I ready for this? What if no one reads it? What if people hate it? What if it's the opposite and it's so popular that my life changes completely. Lets be real...The last of these questions does not scare me as much as the other two do.
I'm attending BookCon tomorrow as a spectator. I'm excited at the prospect of seeing famous authors in the flesh and maybe meeting a few new awesome ones that I don't know yet. I had this moment where I went, "Will there be a day that someone is excited or nervous at the thought of meeting me?" Will I be attending BookCon or BookExpo as panelist or guest someday? I certainly hope so and I hope by then I'll have this whole Author thing a little more figured out. I'm still at the point of trying to secure places to meet readers, both in person and on the internet. I'm also trying really hard to be open minded and not paranoid about people's intentions. This is more of a "real world me" problem, than a Kay Bennson problem.
I will attach the buy links as soon as they are live on Monday. I wish I could tell you how much everything will be, but even I do not know that information at the moment. Here's what I can tell you though:
1. I'm doing a giveaway where you can win a signed paperback copy of my book and a $10 Amazon gift card. Fill out the form and good luck! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSePVoyextr14si7-uaW-_6YtV6RGONn4liPyt9MZEwCpgT1yw/viewform?usp=sf_link#responses
2. I'm buying a bulk shipment of paper backs if you want a signed copy. If you are local, you can pick one up at some of the events that I'm trying to lock down or I can bring it to you. If you are not local, I'm willing to ship. As soon as I know prices, I'll forward that info!
3. I'm going on a blog tour, and there will be another signed paperback up for grabs as well. I will post in more depth about that next week as well.
4. I've been writing like crazy and I am about ready to start having beta readers look at my wip. Hoping to submit it in the coming months. No, it's not Enshrine related, but hoping to jump back in to that sequel soon.
Talk to you later,
