Publication Day!

So today is my official publication day! You may be tired of seeing my cover already, but I can't NOT write about the publication day, right? It feels good to finally be able to call myself an author rather than just a writer. I see that it is #12 on Amazon under Cyberpunk new releases. That's a decent start.

I had a note this morning from a potential reader who said the book intrigued her, but she won't buy something without reviews. I wrote back that Amazon wouldn't allow reviews until the book went live. I do hope that some of you who have already read some of it may be willing to post reviews, since that will really help.  Actually, any sort of publicity can help a book with its launch. Word of mouth really does work! The most exciting part was getting a note this weekend from the great Hugh Howey, letting me know he loved the cover and blurb and had purchased a copy!

    1. Thank you, Alex! Yes, I've gotten some ratings on Goodreads, but not many reviews yet. It's hard to get people to put up reviews.
