Embarrassingly large photos of my face: 1
Hungry For You launched a week ago and so far it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions. I go from loving the book, to wondering why I ever unleashed it on the world (and charged people money for it — the cheek of me!). Then I skim through the book and realize that actually, I’m pretty happy with it.
I haven’t sold a heck of a lot of books in this first week, but considering that I have no reviews yet and haven’t done much in terms of promo, I’m pretty pleased to be averaging on more than one copy a day. As book reviews begin to trickle in, I expect to see a boost on sales — and hopefully the exciting Valentine’s Day tie-in MCM is planning will create some buzz.
Speaking of MCM, he’s promised me a cookie if I get to 25 sales, and keeps holding the number over my head like a bully. So if one of you could be so kind as to grab a copy (from Kindle or Smashwords) then I will take a photo of myself with a suitably large cookie and laugh in MCM’s face. (If I get to 50, I’m open to taking photo requests.)
On the topic of photos, that mysteriously large photo I mentioned in the round up? It’s over on 1889 Labs, where MCM interviewed me about HFU and asked some silly questions about socks and zombies. Go check it out.
