And buzz is exactly what “The Glendale Witch” has created. I’m in writer’s heaven! Buzz implies continued interest.
Digital copies of The Glendale Witch have flown off the shelves (so to speak) at an amazing rate. Sales of print copies are slower, but that’s to be expected in this day and age, and I’m totally okay with that. This week I sold my first book to a Canadian reader, which technically makes me an internationally renown author, lol. I’m amazed and humbled by the response to my novel! I’ve heard from readers that range from age nine to well past middle-age and the response has all been positive.
This Sunday, 10/30, an article about The Glendale Witch will be featured in our local paper, followed by two radio interviews on 10/30 and 11/23. If you aren’t already my friend on FB, be sure to look me up at http://www.facebook.com/debi.blood for further updates.
Did I mention that I’m excited? I see Sam Elliot in the role of Truker, btw. I hope he’ll be available when casting calls go out. ‘-)

I can’t believe it’s been a month and a half since I’ve blogged. What a waste of empty blogosphere space. Not that I have anything incredible or profound to contribute, it’s just the principle of the thing. It’s just like all of those blank canvases of mine that stare at me from beside my boxes of paint every time I walk into the back room. They scream at me: Create! Create! Will ya just create, fercryinoutloud!
Actually, I’ve been creating. The past month or so has been devoted to getting my book, The Glendale Witch, ready for launch. We’re closing in now. Eleven days to go. The print and the ebook manuscripts looks perfect. My SO and an extraordinary writer in his own right, Mickey Mills, designed a fabulous cover and is handling all my technical issues such as the official website, getting the ebook up on Amazon and Smashwords, and also doing the lion’s share of the marketing.
The launch is Oct. 13th. Seems like an auspicious date to launch a book about a witch, does it not?
“Witch” me luck!

My novel, The Glendale Witch, didn’t make the third round in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest, which would normally be discouraging; but the two professional reviews it received were extremely encouraging.
One reviewer thought my exerpt was funny and fresh. The other said it was “just what the doctor ordered”. Both reviewers evinced a desire to read more than just the exerpt. Yet, The Glendale Witch didn’t get passed into the 3rd round where the full manuscript would have been available for reviewers to read.
So I’m encouraged; on the other hand, I’m confused. Befuddled, yet optimist.
I can live with that.
