Erin Green Author - blog
As always, I stayed up until midnight to witness an ebook copy safely arrive on my Kindle - I can then sleep knowing the ebook versions have been safely delivered without a hitch. Though I rarely sleep for long, given that publication day feels like Christmas day once did as a small child, so I was up early preparing for the day ahead. Most will wonder what for? Publication day can be pretty hectic as you juggle answering social media 'best wishes' messages, flower deliveries from publishers, emails from bloggers/reviewers who had read your book ahead of publication, book signings for friends/family and for me, a day out! I never stay at home on publication day; I always plan an 'author jolly'. This time, I took off up North, so wanted to hit the road early to be ahead of the morning traffic. I got my wish and juggled my day answering a multitude of well-wishers and enjoying celebratory bubbles.
An unexpected highlight of publication day, was having three orange best-seller chart flags showing on various books throughout the day!
I was thrilled to stay overnight in a beautiful hotel who gave me a gorgeous room - the four poster bed reminded me of my favourite childhood fairy tale, 'The Princess and the Pea'. My trip concluded the next day when I travelled home to find that my final book delivery had arrived enabling me to package, parcel and post book 'giveaways'.
Finally, a huge 'thank you' to every reader who pre-ordered or has purchased since Thursday - you make my dreams come true each and every time!
