It’s May 1st, which means OUTBACK BLAZE should officially be EVERYWHERE!! I’ve already had reports of people seeing copies out and about in the wilds and hopefully today it’ll be downloading to lots of e-readers all over the place as well.
Release days are always happy experiences for us authors. I’d say they’re even better than a birthday or Christmas! It’s like the culmination of all our hard work is finally paying off. We can breathe a sigh of relief – our book baby is out in the wilds and there’s not much more we can do about it. Some people will love it (and post on FB or send gorgeous emails), some will not, but we’ve done all we can do.
I’m pleased to report that I’m already getting some gorgeous ratings and reviews for OUTBACK BLAZE.
The lovely Bree from 1Girl2ManyBooks posted one this morning that made my heart full. She said “Rachael Johns is fast becoming one of Australia’s most popular authors and with each release she justifies why – realistic, relatable characters, small towns with a great feel and storylines that keep the reader hooked and always wanting her next book. Waiting sucks!” The waiting she refers to is for OUTBACK GHOST the next Bunyip Bay book, which is out in October. To read her full review click here.
And don’t forget I have a fabulous contest running for anyone who takes a #shelfie (photo) of OUTBACK BLAZE in the shops. Post it on my Facebook page throughout May to go into the draw to win a Kobo Touch e-reader!!
Here’s a #shelfie I took of OUTBACK BLAZE in our shop!!
OH and because I’m feeling so damn chuffed today, I’m giving away one print copy of OUTBACK BLAZE (Aus/NZ entries only please) – comment on this blog post to win!
Happy reading folks. Thanks SO much for your support!
