Many, many thanks to my WordPress family of authors and bloggers who brought some serious “noise” yesterday for the release of Free, a Novella.
This story was a simple online-short… okay, it was supposed to be. But who knew Lennie Porter, super-mom, super-daughter, and uber-businesswoman had so many issues?
But I gave her free reign and followed along.
Then people started reading it…
…and I was like, “Uh oh!”
Lennie, the introvert, had an audience.
The short story plodded along for months, navigating through technical difficulties, family drama, and health misadventures (hers and mine.)
When new elements and new characters entered the story line, I decided to publish the online-read as a novella, but since it wasn’t a “new” story, I also decided to forego the bells and whistles of preorder/blogtour/blah, blah, blah, and opted for a quiet release.
Shut the front door!!!
My WordPress family and Twitterbuds (I just made that up) LIKED, blogged, reblogged, Tweeted and Re-Tweeted, and as my daddy would say, “Made a whole buncha’ noise!”… and I felt like a rock star! WOOT! It’s not about the sales and list rankings… but about the people who don’t need to think twice about reaching to support.
Thanks to you all, this little story had a memorable release day!
Much love to you all!
