Hello, family and friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
I decided to write this blog because it’s something that’s been weighing heavy on my mind, though, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only author who feels this way–no matter if it’s their second release or their fiftieth.
When I published “The Right Design,” I was beyond nervous. Not only was my book–my baby–something I’d put my heart and soul into to make it as perfect and likable as I could, it was published into the world. Though, strangely, I was more nervous when I published “Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop” last month. Having it be my second novel, I often wondered–and still do–if it’s as good as my first one. Will the cover stand out? Will my characters be relatable to my readers, and what kind of reviews will I get…? As you can guess, the list goes on and on. However, since it’s been published, I’ve received nothing but the highest compliments on the cover and have read reviews saying how the reader can relate to Khloe, Gabby, and Connie, (most of them being from people who I don’t know). So, what does all this mean about being an author? This is what we do–it’s what we expect. We know not all our books will be the same, nor how our readers respond to one over the other, but it’s our job, and don’t we love it? I know I do!
As for what’s next for “Cards From Khloe’s Flower Shop,” I have several upcoming book tours (which I’m thrilled about), and I’ll be distributing paperback copies to those who want them (if you do, please email me for a signed copy). 🙂
Until then, I’m keeping up with writing my next release, which is going great, by the way. When it comes time for its release, I hope you love it as much as I’m enjoying writing it.
