Guys, look what my mum made me!!
This counts as fanart, right? Either way, this is some HIGH QUALITY MOTHERING. Thanks, Mum! 😀 ❤
Speaking of The Rose and the Mask, as if I’m ever not, Things have been Happening.
Things like AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE PROOF COPY WITH PAGES AND EVERYTHING
I can neither confirm nor deny rumours that I’ve been periodically stroking it and murmuring “my preciousssss” since it arrived.
I can, however, confirm that I found about twenty mistakes in it that were completely invisible on both my computer and my Kindle. Siiiiiiigh. Still, now is the time to find them, I guess!
And, if you like the cut of its papery jib, but also like not paying for things, you may be interested in the Goodreads giveaway I’m running:
As I write this, exactly 500 people have entered. Looking at how well other giveaways are doing, I think that’s… not bad? Not necessarily anything to write home about, but not bad. And it means that at least 500 people have now heard of it. Given how hard it is to get a self-published book noticed at all, I’m pretty happy with that. It’s giving me a very cautious sense that people might find something (the cover? the Beauty and the Beast link? the title? lol, definitely not the title) about it appealing, which is heartening. I’m still keeping my expectations extremely low about how well it will actually sell, but I’m starting to feel that I’ve at least done something right.
I’ll be back soon with more updates. In the meantime, if you missed it, check out my last post where I announce the release date (MARCH 3! IT’S MARCH 3! …Welp, ruined that surprise) and talk about how you can help with the launch if you’d like to.
