But that means I didn't get to do the proper buildup or promotion for the book.
The release happens whether I'm ready or not. A much wiser than I am writer friend reminded me that the release of a book is not a sprint. It's a marathon. This one day is not the only day the book will be out there. I spent the month before the release of the first book in the series, The Art of Love and Murder, on organizing promotion. This time, I'll spend the month after.
It's a marathon, after all.
Writing murder mysteries is all in a day's work until an obsessed fan brings Phoebe's stories to life.
