I watched About a Boy the night I finished writing Broken Magic. I watched it again the night I finished my final revisions and uploaded them to Amazon. There’s a pretty good chance that I’ll be watching it again tonight.
That’s right, friends and readers: Today is Broken Magic release day.
I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Broken Magic. It’s sweet and funny and awkward and a little bit wondrous. Whether you’re still in high school or have done everything you can to forget, whether you’re watching your own children enter the maw of their teens or are hoping never to have kids of your own; there’s something there for you in Broken Magic.
What’s next? The work doesn’t stop, at least not for me. I’m new to the scene, and I’m doing this on my own, and I don’t have the force of corporate marketing behind me. Finding readers without a name and without a marketing budget can be difficult on the best days. All I have on my side is the book itself, my loud mouth…
If you give Broken Magic a chance, thank you. You’ve made my day by reading it, honestly and sincerely.
If you’d like to help it find an audience beyond that, there are a few simple ways you can help. If you have time, leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads telling others what you thought. Be honest if you do! A sincere but mixed review means more than any amount of insincere praise. Simply lending your voice to the conversation will let people know that this was a book worth reading. If you really enjoyed it, invite someone else to read it! Lend them you’re copy if they’re interested. Don’t worry if they buy one or not. Every reader Broken Magic finds is as big a win as any sale.
Regardless, thank you for taking this ride with me, and for your interest in Broken Magic. Now, what are you waiting for?
