Hi Readers! Since it’s release week for my debut psychological thriller book The Long Shadow on the Stage, I wanted to update all my followers with how the week has been going. First, thank you to everyone who has already purchased The Long Shadow on the Stage! I also appreciate everyone who has supported me this week by posting reviews, sharing social media posts and purchase links, as well as those commenting, messaging, texting, and emailing with their support and congratulations. I’m so thankful to have the best readers!
I’m incredibly happy with the reviews and overwhelmingly positive feedback I’ve received so far. Writing and publishing books has been my dream ever since I was 8 years old, so I still can’t believe I finally made it happen. I plan on writing and publishing many more books, so I know this is only the beginning!
If you would like to read the author interviews I took part in with several book bloggers or read a few excerpts from my book, you can find all the links to those here. There are also several 4 and 5 star reviews on Goodreads and Instagram.
Since Amazon and IngramSpark don’t update their sales dashboards right away, I’m still not certain how many books I sold during release week (plus, I don’t plan on sharing this information with anyone except my husband). However, I have a few goals I would like to accomplish with my debut book. My first goal is to earn back the money I’ve invested in The Long Shadow on the Stage within the first year after publication. I would also like to reach 100 reviews on Amazon, although that goal may take a few years so I’m not setting a timeline for that one. If you would like to help me reach my goals, please consider leaving a review on Amazon and Goodreads after you’ve read The Long Shadow on the Stage and spread the word to other readers who you think would enjoy it.
Thank you all again for your kind words, encouragement, and support!
