It's official. They said it would take 24 hours after submission for it to be approved but I checked at noon today and there it was! Must have done something right.
I've been trying to keep up with all the places I need to put the information - I was able to Tweet pretty much right away but had to wait until this evening to do Facebook, to check and comment on my posted tweet. I'm going to have to make a checklist so I know what was said when to whom - but maybe it will be easier on myself if I start here, first, then Twitter - which also goes to Facebook. I know I'll get the hang of it eventually. Soon. I'll hold the Good Thought.
A lot of this is going to depend on people liking the book and telling their friends (not to mention buying it as a holiday gift for their loved ones of all ages. Over 10).
And, of course, the number of folks who choose to become members here. It's crazy. I'm really resistant to putting up a Facebook "fan" ?"group?"? page because I can't think of what to call it. DRAGON SOLSTICE has a Facebook page but since, until today, the only product has been the podcast (which seems to confuse a lot of folks) the lovely folks who have joined haven't done much commenting or sharing with their friends, which is frustrating. And I can't call another Facebook page "Nance Crawford" - already done that. Maybe "Nance Crawford - Writer" - if they'll let me.
Ah, well. Tomorrow it's laundry and watering plants and preparing the print version (which is no cupcake, let me tell you).
