So… I’ve spent the day working on finishing touches for LOSING IT before I begin the process of formatting it for Kindle and Nook.
Now… I say finishing touches, which makes you think I’d be finished, right?
This is my first self-publishing experience, and I seriously have to give mad respect to all the indie authors that have come before me. This is tough job that takes a lot of work. I knew this going in, of course, but that doesn’t make the process any less daunting.
There’s only me standing between those typos and the final draft. I think I’m going to have nightmares of finding a typo on the day of publication. Seriously.
So, of course, I’m obsessively checking things and making changes, even though I would have sworn to you two weeks ago it was done.
The editing bug has struck again. π
Anyway, after a day of editing, I thought I deserved some fun. So… I’m sharing one of my favorite quotes from LOSING IT!
This particular quote comes right after Bliss has a pretty stressful experience. I think it about sums up the way she feels for large portions of the book and also tells you a bit about her sense of humor. I wanted to crawl into a hole and die. I wanted to crawl into a hole at the bottom of a ravine, then be buried under an avalanche, and then die. I wanted to cry. Well, there you have it! I’m sure there will be more quotes and fun tidbits in coming weeks! LOSING IT releases October 16th in ebook on both Amazon and B&N!
The amazing YA Sisterhood blog is organizing a cover reveal and blog tour for LOSING IT. I love those girls, and they’re going to be so instrumental in getting the word out about my book. Obviously, I’m a bit behind in the world of social media, but I’m working on it. π
Amy, the Eldest YA Sister, sent out an email tonight, and emails are already coming in with interest to participate in both the reveal and the tour.
This is one of those moments where I think, “Oh my God! This is REAL.”
Then, of course, I go obsessively back to my manuscript because even though I’ve edited it numerous times, suddenly I’m certain it’s awful, and just have to check again.
Hopefully this sad, empty new blog won’t stay empty for long! π
But can officially say LOSING IT’s cover will be revealed MONDAY SEPTEMBER 24th on the YA Sisterhood blog and numerous others!
Hi All! My name is Cora. Thanks for visiting my blog! I’m an indie writer, and my first book releases October 16th. I’ve been writing all my life, and LOSING IT was the easiest to write of them all. It’s about a girl trying not to lose her mind before she loses her virginity. It was one of those books that just flowed, and I actually completed the entire first draft in three weeks! It encompasses a lot of the things that I love:
Theatre– the main character, Bliss, is a college theatre student.
Forbidden love– Bliss’s love interest is definitely available and interested, but there’s the slight problem that he’s her college professor.
Awkward situations–Yeah, these abound. π
Kissing– oh so much kissing.
More than kissing– it is a book about virginity… and losing it. π
I’d love for you to follow me here or on twitter! Drop me a line, and be on the looking for LOSING IT in Mid-October!
