My cover for The Wild Irish Sea is now up on Amazon! (just click on the title of this post to go there) Also the back cover copy is up in place of the previous blurb that didn't mention my heroine's name. (Thank you to my dear editor for facilitating this change!)
I must admit that even after all this time, the Amazon "rankings" are still a mystery to me. I only know that the lower they are, the better, and as soon as the cover was posted The Wild Irish Sea's ranking went from 4 million and something to 150,000. I guess that's pretty good for a book that won't be released for another four months... All right, four months as of YESTERDAY.
That does feel like an incredibly long time to wait, and I'm very grateful to everyone who has already pre-ordered it. Also, please pass a little of your patience my way! I know, I know... I picked THE WRONG BUSINESS to be in if I had no patience (and I know I don't). Everything in publishing is hurry up and wait! It's worse than the grocery store, where I inevitably pick the slowest line. It's even worse than the security screening line at the airport!
So PLEASE, help yer olde Aunty out! Give me some suggestions or share some of your secrets. What do you do to help pass the time when you must wait? How can I cultivate my patience?
