out in the world
This month, I’ve been focusing on The Patch Project. This book has been out in the world since 2018, and I’ve enjoyed hearing all of the feedback, online and in person. My favourite review compares the book to a ’70s psychedelic film. It was a two-star review, but I love the comparison, and that the person felt strongly enough to leave a review at all!
I’m in the process of planning a reading for the spring, and looking at other ways to put myself out there as an author. Maybe I’ll start carrying my book around, just in case people want to read a chapter. Self-marketing is a huge part of having a book, but I’m terrible at it. At least I have business cards now.
I’m really enjoying working on my next draft of my work in progress. After this weekend, I’m going to take a couple weeks to overhaul the entire manuscript. We’ll see if I can keep to my goal of getting it out for beta reads by March.
The Patch Project is available online through Amazon, or locally at Juniper Books. I also have copies on hand I can sign. If you do give it a read, let me know what you think 🙂
