‘The Beauty Of it All’ follows on from the previously release I Haven’t Lived At All. It acts as a testament to the importance of living each day as it comes, leaving yourself open to new opportunities and rolling with the punches.
Drawing a link between starting to live and finding the hidden beauty in life, ‘The Beauty Of It All’ takes a lighter and braver dive into the world, although the theme found within I Haven’t Lived At All remains strong.
Today I released ‘The Beauty Of It All’ on Kindle (all be it with no warning and no previous promoting!- more on this in a different post)
Please do take a look, give it a try and don’t forget to leave a review. Help me spread the word!
Wow, 6 days until “I Haven’t Lived At All” is officially released, until I can officially drop into conversation “oh yeah I’ve released a book,” and for that sentence to be true. That’s pretty crazy, right?
I realised earlier that a few weeks ago I began Vlogs…and then I think after filming two of them, I sort of just stopped. This was mostly due to lack of time; working full-time and then returning home to bad lighting/feeling like I just wanted to get straight into my pyjamas was too strong of an urge to resist. However, I DO have a week off work next week, so I’ll be posting a couple of videos then (and hopefully I can get a couple of friends to help me out with this.)
I’m just thinking out loud really, sorry.
As the release date gets closer, I feel my need for caffeine rocketing up. I’m hoping this means that I’ve planned the release date well, and this is when it’s SUPPOSED to be released. I also hope this means that I allow myself a day or two to just sit back and (attempt to) relax and try to feel good about the fact that my book is out there etc.
I’m kind of excited about being able to look at back at this in a few months and to see how far (if at all) things have come, being able to take my focus back on to writing and perhaps feeling a little less terrified of this entire process.
I currently only have 5 copies left ready to send out in time for the release date, so if you want yours by 14th August place your order now!
After these 5 have gone, they will still be available for purchase but there will be a slight delay as I wait for more to be printed.
Look out for a complete list of places you can buy the book, this will be posted on the 14th!
In the mean time, head over to my BigCartel order store and place your order now.
Firstly, I’ve been working on a MOBI. format for Kindles, and it’s pretty much ready to go. The release date for the paperback book is 14th August, I’m leaving it up to you guys to decide if the Kindle copy should be released at the same time or if I should roll them all out together? I’m leaning towards rolling them out together, but if the consensus says otherwise than who knows…
In other news, I received my first batch of posters yesterday! I have mine proudly stuck to my wall now 🙂
If you want one (why wouldn’t you?!) you can order them here.
Also just to remind you, once my facebook page hits 200 likes I’ll be launching a giveaway, so keep on spreading the word!
I’m going away (to Amsterdam!!) for a few days on Monday, so I won’t be online at all, but it would be great to come back to the 200 like target 🙂
I’ve added a new page to this blog, titled “Inspiration,” I’m a sucker for a good quote or song so I wanted to document them here!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
(I have just realised that the launch date is about 6 weeks away…oh my!)
I feel like it’s been a while since I posted an update, I’m not sure if it really has been that long? There’s really not that much to update you on; apart from the exciting news that I’ve now posted copies of the book to pledgers!
If you’re a pledger and you selected a paperback copy of the book as your reward, you should receive your books soon!
Typically, after I had posted the books it was pointed out to me by Yasmin that there was a small error in the contents page; this was caused by a slight change in formatting during printing and was something I failed to notice! So the first few books will have this error in, but the second run of printing will hopefully be error free! Can you tell I’m a newbie at all of this? I hope this doesn’t bother anybody too much?
If you’ve received a copy, either electronic or paper, I’d love to hear what you think! Please do feel free to rate my book on goodreads too!
My first interview was also posted yesterday! Take a look to find out a bit more about the book, and a bit about me too!
If you’d like to host an interview with me or a promotion of the book on your website or blog, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I should be able to open up pre-orders for Kindle copies of the book in the not too distant future, as well as sharing more details about the package options.
In the mean time, check out the paperback pre-order!
