The last 2 weeks were like a pit of madness to us. I was anxious about the short story release and how it would be received. There was also planning regarding marketing and another series strategy. On the day of release, I was obsessing about the sales and the reviews and simply trying to be on as many social and non-social pages and events to attract positive attention.
Spoiler alert: Reviews are so far good, mainly 5*
It is so draining. People say social media are an addiction, and I feel like I fall into a rabbit hole, constantly checking if I’m not missing out on something that could help our writing. This and juggling the real-life, very demanding job while also trying to be a human being and spend some time with my family took a toll on me, and my daily word count and writing detracted. That is annoying, with my character I like things to go as planned, but at least now I have 4 almost free day to catch up with my word count and make it better.
As for the big release of out 300+ pages novel Autumn Chaos we hired the professional editor, she is a wonderful person who likes our style of writing and I believe will be perfect champion for our work. We also contracted the digital artist to design cover and hopefully soon we will do a big cover reveal. But right now I need to focus on writing and finish Winter Dragon so we can keep with planned publishing schedule.
