In 12 days, Amazon Encore will release my novel worldwide. I keep pinching myself to be sure I’m not dreaming. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear some new, exciting development with my book. Last week I heard that 5 local bookstores in San Diego are reviewing advanced reader copies, and if they like it, they will order some for their stores and consider setting me up for a book signing.
Yesterday I learned that the PR folks at Amazon produced a 30-second movie trailer to promote my book, and it’s absolutely awesome. I think it redefines “creepy”. Even I got goose bumps. A link to this video is on the upper right hand side of the home page. I’ve watched it a dozen times, and each time I do, I can see how perfectly my novel would adapt to a movie. One can only hope.
Today I found out that USA Today ran a feature article about Amazon Encore in their LIFE section and they mentioned my book and me. Another Encore author captured the limelight and was interviewed. And they also showed a photo of her book cover. Unfortunately, I played second fiddle. But I’m not complaining. USA Today ain’t exactly a penny saver.
I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring but I hope the momentum keeps building. This waiting game is pure torture. If only I could sleep for the next 12 days and wake up the day my book is launched. Then again, I might miss out on all the pre-release excitement. Now where did I put that bottle of Grey Goose?
