How very true this is.
I’ve made many, many mistakes in writing, editing, producing and then publishing Wheeler. So many regrets, they stick in my throat and make my stomach burn. I lose sleep to their haunting.
I deeply regret releasing something that wasn’t completely ready, all because my ego wanted it to be relevant. I let my emotions overrule my logic, which, for true, isn’t something that I have allowed in the past. I am not a sentimental person and while my expressions are many, I keep my true emotions in check. (Yes, Mackenzie is more me than than even I initially thought. Yet another noob mistake.)
Working on this novel, and the follow up, for the past 16 months has screwed with my internal wiring. Maybe it’s the hormones of being on the cusp of menopause. Maybe it’s the realization of so many people reading my words, my thoughts, opening my soul to -at last check, 207 people… and now you, the person reading this- scares the living daylights out of me.
When I’m scared, I make mistakes. Lots of mistakes. Tons of… ok, maybe not tons, but a lot.
I have an opportunity to make up for those mistakes.
On November 5, 2016 through November 12, 2016, on both Amazon.com and Amazon.uk, I’m running a Countdown deal to launch the Second Edition: ‘Wheeler: The Course of True Love Never Did Run Smooth‘. The Countdown starts with the Kindle version at $.99.
If you, the person reading this, had received the Kindle version in the period between July, 2016 and September, 2016 – please get in touch with me. I owe you a free copy. Not that the story itself has changed, it’s matured.
Email me, tweet at me, leave a comment here. Let me make it up to you.
