The details of my debut novel, The Big Inch, are coming in like confetti. From book cover designs, to marketing materials, to endorsements, to release party plans, all things that give me both cause to celebrate and a splash of cold water. (This really is my first rodeo.) I don’t want to miss a moment. As this is my first time to publish independently, I’m managing elements I’d previously assumed others would do. That’s both exciting and daunting. I must have more of a inner control freak than I ever realized because I do love managing the details of how this book is written, packaged, and released into the world. Here’s hoping I have fun learning from mistakes, and gather a whole lot of good memories to do it all again . . . down the road.
