Whew. Not sure I'm ready for IWSG after coming off the A to Z Challenge. A month long blog hop like that requires a break–even if I did write my posts ahead of time. Honestly, that's the easy part. The tough part is visiting and commenting. It's very draining, but also very fulfilling.
Anyways, onto my insecurities.
Writing and publishing a series is a new experience for me. I've only done stand alone novels and there is an added pressure to series. When I released Zadekiel, I got worried people wouldn't buy because they hadn't read Michael, so I ended up hawking that more. Sales for Zadekiel weren't good because of that, and I wondered if I botched release day. And now I'm paranoid about how I'll do with Jophiel. How do I not mess it up? Did I screw up? The free promo I did on Michael on Zadekiel's release has resulted sales and borrows for both though, so I guess I did something right.
Releasing a series presents challenges stand alone books don't. I'm open to tips on how to handle Joe's big day when it arrives.
Oh yeah, before I forget. Anyone like to help with Jophiel's release day? He will be on his best behavior (or Gabe will punch him.)
