The day I released finding Reese. was an exciting day.
This book took a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I had hosted a handful of release day parties for several colleagues, but never one for myself. I figured I wasn’t “current, relevant, or well known” to have a party. I always see the big names in pretty lights doing their thing, and I had that idea in the back of my head that no one would attend. Some of my peers told me to shove my lack of self-confidence up by behind, and give this party thing a shot. So I did, and I couldn’t have done it with the help of some amazing people within the Indie Book World. For all intents and purposes, it was a success. There were so many people in that event actively participating. I remember wiping a tear (or two) from my cheeks.
You want to know what made me cry the hardest? Somewhere in Canada there was an Indie author laying on a hospital bed while doing a takeover during my event. I tried to dissuade this writer from participating because to me their health is of most importance, not my silly release party. But no, she was insistent, adamant about being there. For that hour I choked back tears and asked God to bless her. I’ve never met S.H. Timmins, but from that moment, she stole my heart, and has my undying respect.
Yesterday I was informed by a colleague Timmins was interested in having a party of her own for the upcoming release of Buffed, book two in The Destinations Series. I was thrilled and excited, and didn’t hesitate when asked to co-host. While I haven’t read Timmins work, I am her fan because of her selflessness to this community. I guess the point of this long-winded post is to invite you to the Release Party for Buffed on Facebook on September 1, 2015, starting at 12 P.M. EDT.
I hope to see you there on September 1, 2015.
