I’ll make today’s post brief as I plan on celebrating mother’s day with the one and only female parental unit (F.P.U. never really stuck me as a great acronym, so MOM works). I just wanted to give a brief update on Brass Legionnaire before I head out.
The print and ebook editions of the novel are being finalized as we speak. I’m getting the information from my Kickstarter pals and I’ve started sending of some Advanced Review Copies to different review websites to try and get some reviews before the novel comes back.
This is a big step for me. This is where it goes from being a hypothetical to a real thing. Will the reviewers like it? Will they treat it fairly? Does every author go through this moment? It’s like watching your child ride a bike for the first time without training wheels and without your hand on their back. Except with this, there isn’t really a do over or mom standing over you with a band-aid to patch up your scratched knee.
So as the proud parent of my first born (novel) I say to you, go forth and shine, show the readers all that you’ve got. I have written and created you and given you love and help and time to grow, but now it is time for you to run on your own. If you are a reviewer or reader out there, give my novel a good look. He (It’s definitely a he) has got plenty of character, twists and turns, a comes with a good heart.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone. Enjoy this day with the one person who (hopefully) loves you for all that you are and all that you are not.
