Four Days to Book Launch: Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall

Four days to book launch
I’m a bundle of nerves. I’ve never launched a book before!

Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall is my second novel, but I didn’t launch book 1, All Hallows at Eyre Hall. I just uploaded it to Amazon on 1st May, 2014, hit the ‘publish’ icon, and crossed my fingers.

Fifteen months later, I know better. I’ve met plenty of other authors and bloggers, seen what they do, learned from them, discussed matters, and I want to do a ‘real’ book launch this time.

I’ve organized four main events for the launch:

1- The first thing I did was make Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall available for pre-order on Amazon, just over a month ago.  I uploaded the final version, with trembling fingers, last week. It had been read by seven wonderful, talented, and generous beta readers, and edited twice by a most patient and enlightening editor, Alison Williams. This has been a good idea. I have already sold 50 copies. That means that 50 people are eagerly waiting to download my novel on Friday! They make me feel happy, excited and responsible for their enjoyment.

2- The second thing I’ve done is get in touch with some of my wonderful blogging friends, others will be receiving mails this week, and asked them to help me in my launch by allowing my book launch to appear on their blogs. This will be happening for about a month. I’ll be reblogging, so you’ll be able to meet all my supportive blogging sisters, and some brothers, I hope!

3- The third thing I’ve done is organize a Blogging Party for next Friday, 28th August, right here! Being the ‘clever’ person that I am, I know my limits, so I’ve looked for someone who can help me with the Party, so I’ve asked Suzie Speaks to do so, and she’s kindly pointing me in the right direction. Thank you Suzie! More news soon.

4- The fourth thing I’ve done is organize a Facebook Party. I’ve been to several hosted by writer friends and I’ve had fun, so I decided to do it myself. Although I’ve had an Author Page for about a year, I’ve also had a personal Fb for over seven years, and I have 350 friends. But, I have no idea how to organize a party. Again, I’ve looked for someone who can prepare a Facebook Party far better than I ever could. Becca, Jess, and Katie at LovingtheBook to help me. You’re all invited. More news soon, but it will be from 6 – 8 GMT on Friday, 28th August.

More news soon! Don’t miss out! There will be prizes, and fun and games! Stay tuned!
