Today my latest book, "All She Wants for Christmas" comes out.
It's exciting because it's my first attempt at self-publishing. And yet, to be honest, this book wasn't self-published. I could not have done it without my team. ali cross and her folks at Novel Ninjutsu were AMAZING!
They made a map for the project with deadlines and suggestions and questions. Things I never knew I didn't even know. Like branding, and formatting in several different ebook formats and just life in general.
Elana Johnson was my editor. She was honest. Helpful. Insightful. Sometimes, she drove me crazy--especially when she was right and I didn't want to change, but I knew I should.
Steven Novak did my cover. I wanted something fun. Something that said, come hither you friendly reader. And something that made me giggle. Ben does that. PS...don't open romance covers in a Junior High classroom. I think I went every shade of red after my first giggle. And thank heavens for people with artist eyes because I don't know colors and shapes, but I do like my cover.
So, while I made the decision to move it into publication, I did not publish it. And I would like to thank all those that helped me get All She Wants for Christmas out because it never would have made it without you.
Now, I give it to my readers. Some who know me. Hopefully many who haven't met my writing yet.
A beautifully organized blog tour starts on the 3rd. Stick around and find out more about George, Ben and their story.
Here's hoping you sit back. Enjoy. And have a wonderful, magical holiday escape.
It's all okay.
