It’s now been a full week since I published my novel. Sales are trickling in at a slow and steady pace, and people continue to be extremely supportive, presumably because they haven’t reached the really fucked up parts in the book so they aren’t scared of me yet.
I had a little book launch party with family and friends, which was kind of a weird experience for me because I haven’t had a party since the days of pass the parcel and musical chairs. I really enjoyed it though, especially this spectacular cake!
That’s my book cover rendered in chocolate! Completely edible, completely delicious.
I hope the coming weeks continue to be successful for my little book. There is still a lot of work to be done in terms of promotion, but for now I’m content to take a well-earned break from words. I’ll worry about becoming a best-seller later.
After the sugar high has passed…
