Report on My First Book Launch
Okay – So I have to report on my day yesterday. It was Launch Day for my new children’s book. And can I tell you guys something? I was not prepared for how very VULNERABLE I would feel.
I felt like I was putting my baby on an airplane all by itself, and was not even completely sure of the end destination. I was on pins & needles all day long! But every time I checked my rankings on Amazon, the numbers just kept getting better and better. When I checked at 9:15 PM on Monday evening, my book was ranked #20 in one category, #45 in another category and #5 in a third category!!
(Any ranking under “100” is considered a Best Seller on Amazon!)
You guys – I was in “purple puddles” on the floor!
It Takes A Village
The saying goes that “it takes a village to raise a child.” Well, I believe that it takes a Village to launch a book! So many of you volunteered to join my Launch Team and help “make this happen” – both for me, and for my book.
During this time when we have all felt so isolated, I can’t even tell you how AMAZING it felt to know that I was not truly alone. You all rallied together for a cause. You exemplified the phrase, “We’re all in this together.”
It’s Not Too Late to Check It Out
