The Day Has Finally Come

It’s been a really… Really… REALLY long time coming, but my book will finally release in TWO days!
July 23, 2021 is the big day. I thought it would never arrive.

This has been a very long journey. I’ll be sharing more about some of the ups, and downs, and how this book almost never happened, in my newsletter, that will come out on July 23rd as well. So if you’re not signed up for my newsletter yet, you’re going to want to do it now. I’ll give you a peek into the writing of my next book as well.

For now, let’s take a look at Under Penalty of Death.
If you haven’t yet seen the trailer, here it is:

I’m so impressed with how this came out. I’m not a big fan of book trailers. They leave me … dry. I’m not sure how else to explain it. But this charges me up. I wasn’t going to do a trailer, but I looked at Fiverr “just to see” When I saw her other work, I was so impressed that I had to see what she would do with my book, Her base price was only $30 and let’s face it, a new author needs all the help they can get! I don’t know her real name, but her Fiverr account name is a1spidey. and I left a link embedded in her name.
I think she did an incredible job. I’ve asked her to be a guest on my blog, so you can look forward to that blog in a few months.

Self Publishing is a lot more involved than you would think… or more than I thought it would be. This last month has been so crazy with so much to do, I swear I haven’t gotten a full night’s sleep since May. I’ve learned so much and I almost feel like I actually, almost, kinda, maybe, know what I’m doing… Yes, I know that was confusing and you probably had to read it five times, just to understand it, Welcome to my world… lol

I want to invite you all to my Under Penalty of Death Launch Party. I’m having two, so be sure to schedule time to go to one.
July 23rd, my actual launch day, This will be on FB in Marie’s Muse here
July 24th, both will begin at 3 with online games and teasers with a live event from 8 pm to 9 pm ET. This will be on FB in my launch group. Here
I will share secrets about writing this book, why it took so long to write it, along with prizes, swag and even free books!

Remember, it all starts July 23!!
