For a while, a feeling had been nagging me it. I worried it wasn't as up to par as I thought when I published it. At first, I ignored the suspicion. I had hit publish, the book was finished and I had to live with that. The readers would judge if it was good or bad.
But during one of my bad moments, while I was hating everything I wrote, I hit unpublish. I made a decision that the book wasn't good enough.
Now, I'm not saying when I published Snapshots I wasn't confident in it. I had betas, hired an editor, and read through it multiple times. I believed I had written and edited it to the best of my abilities. (I will never publish a book I half assed.) Even now, I know this to be true.
Despite that, I believe unpublishing was the right thing. Snapshots needs more polishing. It's not bad. (I've had a few friends tell me they like it the way it is. They were being truthful. If they hadn't liked it, they'd just stay quiet.) But it could be better. (Another friend said that in different words.)
The blurb is getting reworked as well. I feel the current one is too vague, yet gives too much away. Does that make sense? MB is helping. She is the mistress of blurbs. Cover might get redone too. Angela is plotting something and every so often she messages me about it.
I'm not entirely sure about this journey. It could be a giant mistake. People could get pissed off that I published then unpublished and reedited. Only time will tell... unless you have TARDIS and can take me to the future to find out. ;)
