Separation of Faith Is Going Live Today!
Yes, my friends, the day has finally arrived! Hallelujah! The next post (#65) following this one (which should happen between 10:00 & 11:00 this morning, September 9) will actually be coming from the social media group at iUniverse. At that time, you’ll see all of the ordering and social media pages in the blog’s right-hand column as you hover over the links. Each of the sites will become fully active at different times over the upcoming days. For example, Amazon’s availability might not be at 24 hours for awhile. The title is just beginning to feed into all the sources.
The novel will also become available directly through me (with customized autographs) on my Web site’s book store (www.SeparationOfFaith.com) as soon as I receive my initial supply (in a few days). Once I have my copies of the book in hand, I’ll need to get photos posted to my Web site and also add the ordering information to the book store. I’ll publish a blog post once that avenue is open.
If you encounter any problems trying to secure a copy of Separation of Faith anywhere, please let me know right away.
VIDEO BOOK TRAILER FOR SEPARATION OF FAITH AVAILABLE NOW FOR VIEWING AT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fy60sDqkEbs. Be sure to have your volume turned up so you can fully hear and appreciate the original melody. 🙂 This one-minute forty-three second project took months to complete. Enjoy.
Book Launch Party
My official Book Launch Party for Separation of Faith will be on Thursday, September 23, at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights, 650 Terrace Avenue, Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, from 4-7 pm. If, by some chance, you’re going to be in this neck of the woods on that day, please let me know so we can hold a spot for you. There will be food, drinks, fun, and lots of celebration that I’d love to share with you.
What a Day, Right?
I can hardly believe that this is actually happening at last! We’ve juggled a bunch of issues during the past five weeks, and I want to publicly thank the staff and management at iUniverse/Author Solutions once again for all the hoops they’ve jumped through to get this thing back on track. I was already a big fan of that company, but I’m an even bigger one now. If you’re a writer who’s considering an alternate path for publishing your book, I highly recommend the iUniverse route.
Of course, I also recommend that, whatever route you choose for your Journey, you make certain that your selection places a substantial emphasis on the editing of your manuscript! If you scan through the last ten months of my blog posts, you’ll see why I believe that the editing component of our publishing journeys is so critical.
Update on The Truth About Cinnamon
The proof of the re-edited version should be finalized by this weekend. Those changes will then need to be implemented by the publisher’s design team. Based on my recent experience with getting Separation of Faith back into the queue, I’m guessing that the Second Edition version of Cinnamon will be available by the end of this month, approximately. I’ll let you know. Meanwhile, the original version is still available everywhere and will remain so until the new one goes live. There won’t be any gap.
As soon as my initial supply of Separation of Faith arrives, I’ll take and post pictures so you’ll have a more three-dimensional view of what’s going on in this crazy place. Photos and videos of the September 23 Book Launch Party will follow shortly thereafter.
This time last Thursday we were at the hospital. Everything went well, and I was home that night. My drains were removed yesterday, so I feel bit like a new woman today. Perfect timing, right?
Squeezing breast cancer into all of this has become my biggest challenge. But I’m incredibly blessed that we found this early, that the type of breast cancer is one we believe we can bring under control, and that I’m being cared for at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York, one of the best (if not the best) places I could be in the entire world. Prayers of gratitude are said many times each day for all the things that are going well.
Stay Tuned for the Social Media Post Marking the Official Launch of Separation of Faith–and Have a Perfectly Fabulous Day!
