Actually, April is a big month for everyone with Avengers: Endgame being the crowning event of cinematic history. Period. I’m not arguing on that. But not only is April the culmination of eleven years of the MCU which I am super duper excited for, but I’ve got a book coming out and a Bookbub on an old book. And–
Wait a minute? I haven’t announced that new book on here, have I… Whoops. Okay. Before we go any further, let me cach y’all up.
After spending all her twenties attending the weddings of her close friends and peers and having nothing but bad luck in the area of love despite her best-laid plans, Spring decides she’s done with relationships. She’s skipping the love and marriage and headed straight to the baby carriage with the decision to get artificially inseminated.
But at a table in the farthest back corner of the reception venue of her best friend’s wedding, she meets the best man, Bilal, and they click over a mutual admiration for art and geek culture.
He’s not looking for a relationship. Even if he was, he just broke off an engagement two months before he was supposed to say “I do,” and he’s not willing to talk about it.
Huge red flag.
It’s easy for Spring to overlook, though. Not only is he a nice guy, but he sees past the woman that doesn’t need anyone to take care of her and to the woman that wants to be taken care of anyway.
What they decide to start together is supposed to be casual, giving Spring a chance to enjoy the fun of a relationship as long as it will last before she carries out her baby plans.
However, slowly but surely, the line between casual and serious starts to blur, and Spring has to start thinking about the tough questions. Do she and Bilal really want the same things out of this? Does it really matter?
Just maybe, for once, what she plans for and what the universe gives her will be the exact same thing. And if it’s not, dare she hope for something better?
It’s a two book series. I’m hoping to have the sequel out in July (don’t quote me on that). I even already have the title for the sequel already. If you read the All the Things series and enjoyed it, then you need to read this one. Like you really need to. Just trust me on this one. M’kay?
Anyway, back to April. I’ve got a lot of promotions line up for Best Laid Plans launch week at the special launch price of 99 cents to remove as much barrier to purchase as possible and have a huge but spread out volume of sales. I even contemplated getting a Bookbub featured new release, but because of their inability to give me any concrete data about the effectiveness of that particular run I passed.
And lucky I passed on the featured new release because Bookbub just emailed me to tell me they’d accepted All the Uncertain Things for a featured deal on April 23rd. I wasn’t even expecting it. I just kinda randomly submit for a deal every few weeks just to see what they say and this time they said yes.
So this means not only do I have a new release with a big promotion schedule, but also a Bookbub exactly a week later with three other books that people can pick up, one of which is a new release. Bruh!!!
I don’t think God could have made this any sweeter. It perfectly and conveniently came together nicely. A new book release and a Bookbub featured deal which is going to give my author name more relevance. The Bookbub will also get me some traction going on Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and ITunes for the All the Things series which I’ve honestly been neglecting.
So yeah, April is looking like it’s going to be a good month for me. Except for the beginning of law school finals, but I’m not going to focus on that negativity.
