When exactly is my release date?

For those of you who don’t know, Wisdom & Folly: Sisters (Part One), will be available November 1, 2015.

That’s in seven days! I know! I can hardly believe it!

Why haven’t you heard this before now? Well, I’ll tell you.

I had planned this huge Facebook release party and giveaway (I have a stack of books to give away, people, and not just my own). I had dreams of titillating blog posts a month in advance, hyping up the release of my very first ever book. And it all worked out perfectly.

In my mind.

Not so much in real life.

Why didn’t I tell you a month ago, as I had planned?

Well, I honestly had no idea if my book would make it to its own release party!

Life happened. Edits were late. I ran into some problems with my cover. (My cover artist is amazing. No way could I have figured it out without her! Sara Helwe rocks!) Formatting took forever. And I didn’t want to tell you my book would be out on a certain date when I honestly had no idea if it would be.

Then there I was one day, scanning Amazon, and lo and behold there was MY BOOK. I can’t even tell you the crazy rush of emotions I felt when I saw my name and cover and BOOK on Amazon for the first time!

It has finally happened, dear readers. Finally.

Yes, I know there is a long road ahead. There is marketing, and letting people know my book exists, and marketing, and writing more, and marketing, and honing my craft, and marketing, and becoming better at what I do, and–have I mentioned marketing? (Pretty much my least fave part. I just want to write!)

But right now, I’m going to sit back, sip my hot chocolate, and revel in the fact that my five-year journey to publication has finally resulted in–publication.

Happy dance!

Oh, yes! Wisdom and Folly, Part Two will be available November 15th.

Thank you for your support, I love you all, and I’m so stinkin’ excited!!! :)

But most importantly, thank You, Lord!

In Him,

Michele

P.S.–Just so you know, you can pre-order the ebook of Wisdom & Folly: Sisters, Part One on Amazon, B&N, and Kobo, and Part Two on Amazon and Kobo. The paperback should be available for pre-order soon! Woohoo!

    Congratulations, Michelle! God bless all of your efforts!

  2. Couldn’t be happier for you, Michele. You write and edit and rewrite and pray and rewrite again and pray some more without it seeming anything is ever going to be real-until NOW! I hope this exceeds all of your hopes and dreams.

  3. Michele, congrats on your new book!
