I’m sick. Not only of working for “The Man” and trying to make sense of everything while trying to find my place in a society that says I had to get a college degree, but doesn’t give you the opportunity to find jobs immediately after graduating. I’m sick of all that, but I really just have a cold. Hopefully not the flu.
I’ve given out a few copies of the sequel to Daylight Hours to some test readers and I’ve gotten some really positive feedback. It’s definitely helped revitalize my creativity. I was worried that anyone who read/enjoyed the first book, wouldn’t like the second in the series. So far, things look good.
As all of my test readers will attest to, I need to fix a lot of grammatical errors, but I feel that the novel is right where I want it to be. I’m still doing another couple of revisions because I battle with perfection. You all do see the problem with being a perfectionist when you know that nothing you create will ever be exactly the way you envisioned it. Look at that. A paradox.
I’ve been posting new chapters of Daylight Hours here for free every Monday and Wednesday for the past few months. Spread the word, people. Chapters 1-22 are here to be read for FREE. Considering that I’m considering trying Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing services, read the chapters here while they’re still up. Trying Amazon’s KDP Select would would make Kindle the only way to read a digital copy of Daylight Hours. It’s got it’s benefits, like being able to promote the novel for FREE downloads for 5 days out of every 90. I’ve heard positive things from the sheer number of readers who download Kindle books immediately simply because they’re free. Hopefully this would be a good way of getting Daylight Hours to more people who will hopefully enjoy the novel enough to write a review.
There are some cons: No more Daylight Hours for Nook and I’d have to take down the free chapters I’ve posted up so far here on the website. The paperback will still be available at Barnes and Noble as well as Amazon.com so that’s good.
Decisions, decisions…Who knows what I’ll do because I sure don’t. All business aside, I’m looking forward to Christmas because two days after I get to celebrate my 6th year with a certain amazing woman who somehow manages to put up with me.
This cold better vanish before then.
