Um, guys? I just realized something this morning: MY EPIC FAIRY TALE FAIL comes out in exactly one week! The release has completely snuck up on me, probably because I’ve been so focused on revising the third book.
How does it feel to have my second book almost out in the world? Exciting, amazing, and totally surreal. A few years ago, I was desperate to sell just one book. If you’d told me I had not one but two series in my future, I would’ve thought someone had replaced your brain with Jell-O.
So what will I be doing to celebrate the release? Well, I already mentioned that I’ll be having a launch party on March 2nd (all are welcome!) and I’ll also do some online stuff on the official release date including a Twitter game and giveaway, and maybe something fun on Facebook. Stay tuned!
I must say that this time around, I’m much less anxious about the book release than I was the first time around. I know not everyone will love the book, and that when I look back at the story, there will always be things I wish I’d done differently, but I’m learning that that’s all part of the process.
The fact that I have other projects keeping me busy is definitely helping me not stress too much about the second book. But, of course, we have to celebrate our accomplishments, so once I send my revision of UnFairy 3 to my editor on Monday, I’ll let myself really enjoy the fact that another one of my children is heading out into the world. And I’m going to throw her one awesome birthday party.
