I am thrilled to be taking part in this blog blitz. ‘In The Wake of Death’ was published in paperback and as an eBook in August of this year. Billy McLaughlin has written a guest post for my blog, but first here’s what his book is all about.
Sometimes waking up is only the beginning…
He was left for dead on the side of the road. Now Marc Adams is awake and he can barely remember anything about his life before. All he knows is that his meddling sister has returned to his life, whilst his partner Joel is gone.
Marc is convinced that something has happened to Joel. Why won’t anybody believe him?
As he is pulled further into the pit of his subconscious, Marc begins to remember exactly what happened on the night of his accident.
Soon, he’ll be wishing he hadn’t woken up at all.
So, your book is being published!
How do you spend publication day eve and the actual day?
• What do you do the night before?
• The morning?
• Who are you with?
• Where do you go?
• What do you spend the day doing?
• Is publication day 1 the same as publication day 2? And so on?
• Do you have any rituals?
These questions are not set in stone; answer the ones you like and add in anything you think has been missed!
I haven’t enjoyed any of my publication dates so far. The first novelette was released when I was on my way to Birmingham on a coach. I hadn’t yet even told a single living soul that I was releasing it – not even my partner.
The publication date of my second book ‘Lost Girl’ happened to fall on a working day, so I didn’t do anything to celebrate it.
I think I will make a point of having some sort of celebration when I release the next book because it’s something I want to enjoy now that I feel more connected to it.
I have no rituals when I finish a book except to breathe. I get so engrossed in the writing that I thunder forward without really thinking about how I’ll feel when its finished. The new book is taking longer than any of the previous ones, but that’s because I haven’t given myself such a rigid deadline and because I want it to be perfect. Also, the story is brand new. It hasn’t been built on the carcass of anything that I had previously written. The only thing carried over in it is some of the characters who have now become mainstays of my books.
