Guest Post by Skye Turner author of Alluring Turmoil
The past 2 months have been like something out of a movie.
I went from working in my home as an Indie editor and being a domestic goddess to being an Amazon Bestselling Author.
This is Thankful November and I am beyond thankful for the blessings bestowed upon me.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a quirky, speak my mind, no filter kind of woman.
Some people love it, some people hate it, but I am me and I don’t see the point in hiding or changing who you are to make others happy.
Loads of things have been going on with me. I’ll try to jot them all down and also give y’all the dates of some totally awesome stuff, you are not going to want to miss!
It’s been a whirlwind week.
To be honest, my life right now, doesn’t seem real. I kind of feel like I’m in a tunnel underwater, with my head all fuzzy, and my senses out of whack.
My debut novel released early (on Amazon) one week ago tonight. And it’s been nuts.
Today is Alluring Turmoil’s official release day!
Sales are GREAT and I couldn’t be any happier.
Currently I’m #1092 in the Paid Kindle Store! This is out of over 80,000 books! So, yes I am stoked!!!!!!
Alluring Turmoil comes out in 3 days. I absolutely cannot believe it. I have been a crazy person the past few days and as it gets closer and I scramble to do all of my last minute things and make sure my “i”‘s are dotted and my “t”‘s are crossed, I’m certain it will be worse.
Today is the day and here it is…
My day today started off pretty shitty.
I uploaded my book to Createspace last night to get an idea of what it will cost in paperback and it completely messed my formatting up.
Apparently any book over 400 pages has to be formatted completely different for print than for ebooks. Who knew?
Not me for sure! Continue reading
Whew. Yesterday was a crazy day.
Sunday, I received my book back from my editor with final edits, so I spent all of Monday and yesterday morning finishing those up.
There is nothing more exciting than having an editor send you notes and write in the margin of your book that she was so into the story, she was having to read ahead and then backtrack to edit, because she just had to know what happened before she could concentrate on edits. 🙂 Continue reading
