For all of you seasoned authors out there, you guys have this all down… I am still recovering from the startling fact that a book needs to be raised after you are finished writing it. But, believe it or not, I have emerged unscathed and actually quite perky from the endorsement phase of book raising. I am very, very happy that we were able to finalize the paperwork for “The Cheese!” and this endorsement will be on the cover of the ARC for Grace: A Child’s Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery, along with Jeff Foxworthy’s very kind and thoughtful quote.
I appreciate the doctors who took the time to read what I sent, the cancer foundations who responded with positive encouragement, the celebrities who surprised me with their warmth, and each and every person who supported my project with an endorsement! It was such a successful endorsement campaign that I have been forewarned of “Endorsement Fatigue.” I guess that this refers to readers inability to cope with reading endorsement after endorsement. My thought is that it is better to gather too many and pick the ones we like best. Promise I won’t “fatigue you!”
There are a few more “floaters” out there that I would love to bring in. Hmmm… calling all floating endorsements! Front and center, please !
And then come ARCs! The end of May… the end of May.
This is fun. Yes, this is really fun!
