The Ebb and Flow of Being a Published Author…

Yesterday was a bad day.  I had already had some insecure feelings about INEVITABLE and its future as a bestseller starting this past Sunday.   My premonition was confirmed when I received an email at 4:30 yesterday afternoon from my publisher that stated that all book signings would be delayed due to Borders filing Chapter 11.  Undoubtedly, this has caused a lot of instability in the retail book world.
So I felt like crap last night and decided that I am giving up marketing and it’s pointless, blah, blah, blah.  But then, something great happened.  Another book blogger replied to me and here’s what she had to say:

Hi Kate-

Not sure if you check Twitter a lot, but last night I posted that your book kept me up late! I could NOT put it down. It was so incredibly fantastic and I can't thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to read and review it for you. I am still thinking about it this morning. It was so intense and I loved every minute of it!!

My tentative date for your review posting is going to be Tue 4/12. If not then it will be Thu 4/14.

Thanks again!


Today is a good day J


  1. My Stalker is reading your book now, she bought it after reading my review! Chin up! Also, I forgot to ask, can we do an Author Spotlight? Pleeease? And if you're feeling rich we could also do a giveaway for a signed copy (I love hosting giveaways!) - but you'd need to send one... because it doesn't make sense to send me a copy only for me to send it on again...

  2. Kate,

    I'm @bleedingheart88 on Twitter. I wanted to let you know that I just finished Inevitable (in one sitting) and have posted a review on Amazon. You can check it out if you'd like:


    Now, I'm emotionally spent from that read and I need a nap. Congratulations, this book is absolute proof that you deserve success in your writing!


  3. So glad that I was able to help lift your spirits! :) I agree with Michele. You deserve SO much success. Inevitable was such a phenomenal book! One that I will think about and recommend a million times over! I CANNOT wait to see what you have for us in the future. My review goes up on the blog tomorrow! Hope you enjoy it! :)


  4. P.S. I hope my review is able to do its amazingness justice! :)
