A New Launch Date

So I had to make a change this morning, and if you’re reading this from your web browser, you’ll notice that my countdown for the release of Loving Riley has been postponed to April 26.  It may still drop sooner than that date but for now, I have to pick a date that’s within the 30-day window that Amazon allows.  I have yet to find out how it’s going to be for other retailers.

Why the delay? Because my editor just confirmed that she won’t get done with my manuscript until March 24-25 at the earliest.  And with possible changes and revisions required, I want this book to be the best it can be and most of all, keep the same mood and spirit as its predecessor, Loving Ashe, which was written at least two years before Everything She Ever Wanted.  She’s also the same editor who worked on Loving Ashe three years ago because I like keeping the continuity for my projects.

So if you’ve preordered your copy, my heartfelt thanks and my request for patience on the release of Book 2.  Now I just have to remind myself not to keep rewriting things until she returns the manuscript with edits and recommendations…

  1. -hugs- Step away from the book. Seriously, step away.

    Open up something new. Work on another project. Think about something else. Anything else.

    I know. It’s difficult. And I get told this all the time. Pot, kettle, black.

    Good luck!

    1. Thanks! I actually opened a new book to work on this morning. But it’s my fault for setting the launch date and then forgetting to tell her. I thought I had but when I reviewed all my emails, I apparently neglected to add the date.

      1. Good for you. 🙂

        Yeah, it happens. At least with being in charge of your own launch date on Amazon it’s something easily fixed. People will understand. They want the best book possible.

  2. It’s always better to take the time to get it just right than rush it. I learned that with my second. My publisher rushed it and it’s been a problem ever since, and will continue to be until I get my rights back because she refuses to correct the mistakes that are in it.

    1. I hope you get your rights back very soon! That would drive me crazy knowing how I stress over the littlest things.

      That’s on my to-do list today and I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that my featured Bookbub will still pay off in preorders.
