The Day After Thoughts

Technically Lark was released on February 5 but because most of us are asleep in the  middle of the night, nobody knew about it until yesterday morning. So I'm counting today as the day after release day.
Komal posted on my Facebook wall that I had broken into the top 5k last night! And while Lark is currently sitting at #6,774, it's still exciting to be in the top 10k after one day and being an indie book with no professional "compaigning" or anything.
Currently, it's only available on Kindle but at some point this weekend it should be up on Barnes and Noble. I'm not really sure why they take so much longer to process than Amazon but they do (Amazon takes 12 hours, B&N says up to 72 hours!).
I also received my mock up for my paperback cover and hope to have that available early next week (if not this weekend!).
I've been obsessively checking to see if anyone has posted reviews yet. I kind of had to laugh at myself because it's not like everybody can just drop what they are doing and not only read my book but write a review about it but I'm super excited to see that 6 people have reviewed it so far! And LIKED it which is even cooler! That has to be the best feeling in the world!
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to everyone who has read, reviewed and spread the word about Lark. I have pretty much been smiling and wanting to jump up and down like a giddy little school girl for the last 24 hours. I'm surviving on very little sleep but you'd never know because I'm just so happy that my book is a BOOK, it's out there and people are reading it! It's an amazing feeling!

I'm taking a break this weekend from writing the sequel because we are going to be in KC for a Yellow Ribbon weekend but it's back to work on Monday and hopefully I can get into the groove and have a first draft finished in the next few months.  I'm very excited to continue Mia's journey!
