The nerves are setting in | Pre-order time!

Hey, how are you?

We (my co-author and I) have been waiting a very long time for the moment when we put ‘Shona’ for pre-order on Amazon.

It will be available to pre-order Saturday 2nd November

We are excited but boy are the nerves setting in!

We made sure that it was planned well, edited by a professional editor 3 times, beta read and proofread. The front cover was professionally designed so…what is there to be worried about?


Anybody who has self-published knows how hard you have to work not only on the writing of the book, but the marketing side of things. Luckily for me, I love the marketing stuff. But I seem to putting so many expectations on what makes a successful launch and what is a failure, but then I have a word with myself and say that it is a journey not a destination.

We have LOADS of books either written, being written or planned for after Shona, we are in it for the long haul and are approaching it like a business and I need to remember that it’s ok to be scared and vulnerable sometimes, especially when you have put your heart and soul into something like we have.

Have you ever felt scared or vulnerable when launching your business/product?

Let me know in the comments section.

Take care, speak soon,
