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. ‘-)

Considering that we’re still 6 days away from the launch of The Glendale Witch, I’m not sure how it’s possible but the Kindle version is flying off the shelves. Good thing there’s an unlimited supply!
Seriously, I have no clue who sneaked over to Amazon to avail themselves of the unlaunched ebook, but I’m extremely flattered and humbled. Whoever you are, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Remember to post a review – what you liked, what you didn’t like, whether or not you’d like to see the sequel.

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!
