Once you've written a book you might think your work is done, but that's hilariously wrong. Once its written, you have to edit it. Again and again and again. And then again. And some more after that.
Once it's in shape, then you have to market the thing, which is a whole new skill set. I'm learning, but it's hard to sell yourself. You feel like your mum is going to leap out from behind a curtain and tell you to stop showing off. Or that you're boring the bejeezus out of people (sorry).
But marketing is happening. I'll be launching the book in Australia in October, watch this space for more details on that. Then in January I'm heading over to the UK to promote the book there. Yes, I'm leaving the Aussie summer to tour the UK in the depths of winter. How I suffer for my art!!
Another fun fact is that once your book is out there it has a life of its own. This book has murders, blood and gore, but barely a mention of the old S - E - X. Yet several bookshops and now Google have it listed as e r o t i c fiction. IT SO IS NOT!! The genre of this book is dark historical fiction. I'm currently writing that fact on every social media outlet I can find. My serial killer ain't saucy!
