Release Day!–What all it entails

Today is the big day! Dragon’s Future: book 1 of the Dragon Courage series is now available in paperback and eBook via amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iBooks. So, what happens today? For starters, I have a guest post on Mother Daughter Book Review in which I share a section of the book where Ruskya learns a bit about his dad and becomes a trainer of dragon riders. I also have an interview on Book Nerd Paradise on YouTube that lets you get to know me a little better and I read a 6 minute section of the book when Ruskya meets the mysterious dragon rider. The next set of happenings was set up by my wonderful book manager, Pam Labbe. She helped organize a book blog tour through CBB Books. Dragon’s Future is also featured on Night Owl Reviews. Then later on today, 4pm EST to 8pm EST, there will be a Facebook party. This is where you just log onto the link and interact with authors. There will be a new author every half hour and each author will have some kind of a giveaway. I’ll also have several giveaways as well. The one who invites the most people who attend will received an autographed copy of Dragon’s Future. The top two people who interact the most over the course of the party will receive either a the dragon oil warmer or the dragon jewelry set.

I will also give away a large swag (that’s book related merchandise) package:

Besides all of this, I get to keep up with Facebook congratulations, Twitter tweets, and other miscellaneous social media contacts of well wishes and trying to get the word out to the world that Dragon’s Future is a real book!

The problem is that besides being an author I am a wife, mom of five (three of whom are still at home), and a teacher. That means that I also have housework that needs to be done, organizing kids so they don’t run a muck, and picking up a van from the school for a leadership conference that starts tomorrow. I think I have my work cut out for me and I had better go make breakfast, wake up the kids, and get started! Thanks everyone for the support you’ve shown me so far and “may your dragon fly true!”

What's your take?
