So, things have been slightly manic here (which doesn’t really excuse my tardiness on this blog. My apologies for the tumbleweed if you’ve checked in) – but onwards to some very exciting news! I have a release date for The Making of Gabriel Davenport. Please mark April 8th 2016 in your diaries as the day my book baby flies its nest. If you have a look in my sidebar, there’s a link there to try your hand in a Goodreads giveaway to win one of three signed copies!
About ten minutes ago I received the actual proof copy. A proper hold-in-your-hands-smell-the-pages-book ❤. My hands are still shaking. I just need to read it through for the final time and check for anything amiss, but as soon as I’ve done that, my book will be live, and just waiting for the 8th April.
It all seems a little surreal. It’s been a long, exhausting slog and many months filled with a roller coaster mixture of anxiety, unbridled joy and far too much tea! But would I do it again? *
In a heartbeat.
* The sequel is just about ready to send out to beta 😉
How exciting. Date marked in my diary. Congratulations, you’ve done it!
Thanks so much, Nadia 🙂 Your support has been such a blessing *hugs*
I shared you on Facebook and IG – alas that will lessen my chances of winning a signed copy, the sacrifices one must make for friends xx
You are amazing! Thank you so much ? True friendship comes with forfeits 😉 x
Brilliant! Awesome! Can’t wait to read it. And I hear you about doing it all again. And again. And again. 😀
Thank you, dear Aura ? I think the words flow in our veins. There’s no way out 😉
This is huge! You’ve really pulled a blinder, Bev. So excited – can’t wait to read. (Now where’s that Goodreads link…)
Thanks so much, Jenny ? Seems like there’s loads still to do but it’s creeping ever closer! Fingers crossed for you in the giveaway 😉
Haven’t entered for the giveaway – not on Goodreads yet and don’t have time atm. Cool though – would much rather buy a copy!
Aw, you’re so lovely ? When you have time, make an account. It’s very good for seeing what works in your market, and you can convert your reader account to an author one when the time comes, and then you have a ready made fan base 🙂
Just commented on your IG post. Congratulations!!! This is so exciting. 😀 The book looks fantastic!
Thanks so much for the kind words and support, Nicole! ❤
This is a book I won’t miss. The cover, the story, everything about it seems amazing. Congratulations!
Thank you, Sarah! I am so appreciative of all of your love and support, and I can’t wait for you to read! 🙂
Surreal indeed to hold that copy of your book for the first time. For me, it was my 6-year old son handing me my book and saying something like, “Here you go, Liz Madrid.” Congratulations and I’d love to share the news on my social networks!
Thanks so much, Liz 🙂 I remember when I opened my proof copy and it was like ‘wow, did I do this?!’
Your support will be more than appreciated!
I am so excited for you on this amazing day. I can only imagine how you are feeling right now. Congratulations on not only having your first book launched but having a second one ready for betas. That is impressive. Hard work always pays off. Way to go!
Hi Jillian 🙂 This didn’t show up on my notifications so apologies for the delay in replying. Thank you so much for the good wishes, it really means a lot that people are taking the time to support me! It’s a very surreal feeling having a book actually *out there*, but I love it 🙂
Can’t wait to read it! =)
