Dear Henderson House supporters,
Happy April! I hope wherever you are spring is springing.
Here is a quick update on Henderson House:
Inkshares has been very forthcoming about their backlog after suspending new releases due to the pandemic. I corresponded with Avalon at Inkshares yesterday and she said they will probably not start on anything new until late summer.
If anyone is interested in reading the revised final chapters, please message me!
All the best,
WE DID IT!!!!! Thanks to your support, Henderson House won the 2020 Inkshares All Genre Contest! We were number 1 out of 383 entrants. I’m so grateful to each and every one of you and pretty darn excited, too. Now the work of editing, designing, marketing, and launching a book begins.
WHEN WILL YOU GET YOUR BOOK? Inkshares estimates that the publishing process takes nine months to a year. With Covid-19, they suspended new releases in the latter part of 2020. I don’t know if that means they are gearing up for more releases than usual in 2021 and early 2022, or if my book launch might be delayed. I will keep you posted.
The GOOD news is that I will have a team of professionals managing that process for me and helping Henderson House get the best launch possible! It also gives me time to start working on the sequel :) Who’s ready to see Frank and Bessie get married, Florence head to Tulsa and Mrs. H. move to Princeton?
HOW CAN YOU CONTINUE TO HELP? Gee, thanks for asking:) Henderson House can continue to take Pre-Orders. Pre-Orders are ESSENTIAL to hitting BEST SELLER benchmarks. So please, keep sharing the link to my Inkshares book page and encouraging folks to reserve a copy.
Also, Inkshares is known for securing audiobook/film/TV deals for its properties. I need to provide Inkshares with COMPS - what books or movies do you think are comparable to Henderson House? Please let me know. I could really use your input.
WANT TO FOLLOW THE JOURNEY? I will send major milestone updates through Inkshares. If you are interested in following all the ups and downs of this publishing adventure, please visit my website and subscribe to my blog. https://www.carenmcvicker.com/
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my dream of becoming a published author come true ❤️
