The Edge of the Woods: Launch Day!

IT’S HERE!

Banner 1B

Well, it’s kind of been. It’s 7:52pm and I launched this morning, woken up at 6.30am by a text from a friend who’d just ordered her copy. Which was sweet and exciting and fuzzy in the ‘Jesus, what time is it?’ kind of way.

But here we are. My first novel has gone live. It’s out there, like one of those baby turtles who has to scuttle (crawl? Land flap?) its way to the ocean and try not to get eaten alive. And like a million year old mama turtle, all I can do is watch and refresh the KDP reports page.

…bad metaphor?

Anyway.

It’s been a great day, with lots of people saying lots of lovely things and being all around very supportive. Thanks to them The Edge of the Woods is sitting at #1 in the Australian Kindle store under the Young Adult Women & Girls category, #860 in the Australian Kindle store overall and #33,274 at Amazon.com. Which is pretty cool!

So now we press on! A friend asked a while back that when I publish I make a blog post about my self-publishing process, so I’ll spend some time on that over the next few days, but otherwise it’s on with Book #2 and following up some leads and opportunities re: actual paid work.

It’s been a big day! Let’s all kick back with a beer and a good book.

You could always try mine, if you’re into that sort of thing.

  1. I’m really thrilled for you Cei! You’ve pursued this goal with so much dedication, hard work, research, writing and re-writing ’til I imagine your brain bled and devised a great strategy for getting your book out there. You’re wonderful. John
