On Saturday night, after receiving my cover and contemplating over whether or not I should wait a few days and organize my release, I decided to jump the gun and just publish it already. My dear friend Liz encouraged me, asking me what I was waiting for…after all, I’ve been posting about this book for nearly 4 months now. Probably longer.
So, to Amazon and Smashwords I went, eager to hit publish and make it all happen. Amazon likes my computer, Amazon accepted the upload with ease. In no time at all, I had my book published to Amazon. You can now buy it for Kindle, whether you’re in Canada, the USA, or the UK. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can get the Kindle app for your tablet or phone.
Smashwords gave me trouble. Lots of trouble. My computer kept losing the signal in the middle of the upload. I asked my mother-in-law if I could borrow her laptop, and she said yes.
So, the next day…I went to do just that. I touched her computer, started to upload the book, and it crashed.
Yes. It crashed. That’s the third computer I’ve crashed by simply touching. I am seriously cursed when it comes to computers, so much so that I should probably buy myself a Mac Book. I’ve heard that even I couldn’t break one of those.
Luckily, Liz is coming to the rescue! She’s helping me get the whole thing rolling for Smashwords, so Collide will be available soon for Kobo. I hope.
In the meantime, it is on Amazon for Kindle, if that floats your boat. I know some of you have said you don’t have e-readers, and that’s totally cool…I used to use my smart phone and the Kindle app…but if that’s also not your forte, I will be putting it on CreateSpace to publish once I format it for that.
I’m so excited to have you guys read it and hear what you think!
