I had an idea for Ugly and the Beast the other night. I didn't get up and write it down and now it's gone. All I'm left with is the memory of thinking it was really awesome.
Sleeping Ugly should be back to me tomorrow for final edits on my end. As long as they aren't numerous or lengthy, I should be able to put this up for pre-order sometime before the 25th. Or would you rather I just put the book up for sale when it's ready?
Part of me wants to put books up for pre-order. Another part doesn't see the point. As a reader, I rarely pre-order books. I don't like buying something and then waiting for the cost to come out of my bank account at some future date. Cuz I might forget about it.
Obviously, I am not going to have Ugly and the Beast ready to send to AWE any time soon. So, I'm going to send her Unequal next, in order to have a fourth book come out this year. From a sales standpoint, I probably should've buckled down and busted my ass to get UatB out next, but apparently that's not how I roll, baby.
If you're keeping track, Sleeping Ugly will be my 12th published novel.
I had planned to do some marketing for the Once Upon a Djinn series this month, but since the stuff I had planned fell through, I scrapped the idea and went ahead and raised all the prices for those books to $3.99. Now I have to wait 30 days to hold any kind of sales for those, so maybe next month I'll do something sparky.
I still haven't done paperbacks for my last two books. Do any of you care? Cuz if I thought anyone cared, I'd be more motivated to get that stuff done.
My cover artist is doing a paperback cover for Sleeping Ugly. I'm still not sure if I'll go paperback with that book yet, but I'll have the option.
Okay. That's it. Does anyone have any questions? Comments? Wisdoms?
