The Writer’s Angst of Launching Books – Jamie Davis

The Writer’s Angst of Launching Books

Every time I have a new book come out, especially one I’ve put a lot of personal value into, I get more than a little anxious. I’m not gonna lie, I’m probably not a lot of fun to be around. 
 
I know. I shouldn’t judge myself based on the success, or failure, of a book. I don’t have any control over what the reader response is going to be. 
 
That is the crux of what it means to be a writer (or any other kind of artist). You invest yourself in a project, giving it your whole being as you become invested in the characters and what they mean to each other in the story, and to you outside it.
 
Cyber’s Change is special to me for a lot of reasons I won’t go into again. If you want to understand why this project holds such importance, go back and read some of my previous posts here prior to this one.
 
Cyber's Change Book 1Ultimately, the fate of Cyber’s Change about to be in your hands and the hands of other readers. It’s a little different from what I’ve written in the past. The biggest part of it is there’s no magic, just advanced technology of the near future (2055).
 
HOWEVER, this series still contains strong female characters in tough situations dealing with a world that pushes back against them in many ways. In that sense, it’s very much like a lot of my books. You’ll have to tell me.
 
Cyber’s Change is available for $0.99 until the day it’s released. Now’s your last chance to get it at the pre-order price just before release day next Friday, April 5, 2019. 
 
Read it, enjoy it, and let me know what you think in a review if you want. And thank you!
