After eight years, countless edits, one failed publisher and numerous mental breakdowns, How To Disappear Completely is finally complete. In two weeks time, it will be available on Amazon for the whole world to read, and it will only cost you $2.99.
I am both elated and absolutely terrified.
From the moment this book is uploaded, it will cease to be mine. It will belong to the reader. My intended meaning will become irrelevant. Instead, it will take on new meanings for each person who reads it. I hope it will mean something very special to them. But I cannot control that. Some people will dislike it, maybe even hate it. I cannot control that either.
As I wait for May 20 to roll around, I’ll begin sending out press releases and review copies. If you would like a free copy to review on your blog, Goodreads or Amazon, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For now, I’m going to sit back and enjoy not editing anything for the first time in about six months. I might even leave the house…
