The Art of Soft Releases...
These books hold a lot of meaning to me.
First, Dominus is the conclusion of a series that has been really important to me. In some respects I am thrilled to let go of the series and move on to new things. In another way, I am sad to see Nesy and Aydan go. They have been a part of my life for more than three years.
Quiet Kids releases exactly three years after my very first book. It's exciting, and I can't believe everything that has happened over the last three years.
I am doing some promotional activities for both books in October, but for now I am happy with soft releases. You know, when a book releases with little to no fanfare. Both books have had release dates move around and shift, resulting in some issues with my promotional calendar. So, to make sure I didn't have to again switch everything around, I decided to hold off and wait until mid October to celebrate the releases and promote the books. I have no idea if this will prove to be a wise decision. I guess time will tell.
What do you do to promote your releases? Do you prefer big fanfare or something smaller?
