“Harcourt’s Mountain” was launched five days ago. And I’m reveling in being a published author. Watching my ranking veer wildly up and down the Amazon Kindle ranks is a both exciting and disconcerting. It’s out there now and all I can hope is that people buy the book and leave favourable reviews. And of course, repost the links in their Facebook pages. Doing the marketing is so time-consuming. I guess what every author prays for is that the book will develop a life of its own and start racing up the ranks by itself. After all, what I’d rather be doing is writing. Since the launch of “Harcourt’s Mountain”, “The Device Hunter” has been playing nicely and I have churned out a good six thousand words since last Thursday.
It’s been great getting emails and Facebook messages about “Harcourt’s Mountain” and the celebration lunch on Sunday was a hoot. Now comes the wait for public opinion. Nail-biting, that’s what it is. Never realized how slowly people read! But then, maybe it’s just new parent anxiety. Come on people; let me know what you think of the book! I feel like my life is filled with exclamation marks since last Thursday as well.
For those of you who haven’t got your copy of “Harcourt’s Mountain” yet – it’s waiting on Amazon Kindle begging to be read. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EK0V2Y4/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00EK0V2Y4&linkCode=as2&tag=tirgeapubli09-20
Today is a perfect day for writing (and reading) - chilly with a slight brisk breeze. “The Device Hunter” is calling. So, a pot of coffee and off I go! And I’ll try very hard not to check the Amazon Kindle rankings more than once an hour.
Stand back! I have an imagination and I'm not afraid to use it!
