Snapshots' release didn't go very smoothly. I had unmentionable typos and the blog tour had a lot of hiccups. At one point, I kicked the proof paperback across the room in frustation and anger. I gave it and another proof copy to a friend and told her she could burn them for all I cared. I didn't want to look at the book. All the excitement I had for release day turned black.
Those moments continue to haunt me. I'm afraid of another typo, bad blog tour or a slew of low reviews. During the release blog tour, I had two participants switch from reviews to promos because they didn't like the story. Doubt stays my hand when I consider sites that offer promotion. I'm not ready to handle another disaster after the last one made me loath my own book. I think I actually concerned a writing buddy that I was going to delete Snapshots and pretend it never existed.
How do I get over this fear?
