Hey guys! Laura A. Grace here and bringing you another blog post!

BUT!

Today is different.

You guys, are you ready?

Are you prepared for this?

I am revealing the title of my upcoming debut.

BOOM!

To be writing this blog post¬†is very very surreal. If you’ve¬†been following me on social media this¬†week, I’ve been¬†dropping all these fangirl things and¬†book related things all in preparation¬†for today’s post.

So, I’ll jump right in!

I’ll tell you the name of the title. I’ll¬†also tell you when it’s going to be¬†releasing, the cover reveal sign up link, and the Goodreads link because it’s officially on Goodreads.

Cool fun fact!

I was actually already on Goodreads and I had no idea until I went to make my author Goodreads page.

Sort of cool, sort of¬†like “Oh my goodness I’m really on¬†Goodreads!”.

Yeah, let’s jump right into¬†this thing!

You’re probably really¬†wanting to hear the name of the book¬†first before I go into sort of what the¬†book is about so I guess I can enlighten¬†you or entertain you today. ūüėČ ¬†(And it’s¬†really hard because I’m actually going¬†to show you the title page of my author¬†proof that came in the mail which means¬†I have the cover right here, but I can’t¬†show you!)

I really really want you to, however, I¬†will show you the title page so you’ll¬†be able to see the font that I’m using.

Okay, right here we go!

There it is! Dear Author: Letters from a Bookish Fangirl.

It’s so pretty!

It will be published under my imprint Unicorn Quester Books, LLC.

I’m excited this book Dear Author: Letters¬†from a Bookish Fangirl is fifteen letters¬†from me to authors. It also has¬†illustrations and they are so¬†adorable, they are so cute, they are so¬†much fun!

Anybody who has seen them has really really loved them so huge shout out to Hannah S.J. Williams who was my illustrator for my illustrations.

Like I mentioned, Dear Author is letters¬†to authors and it’s basically like a¬†whole bunch of love letters from me to¬†indie authors specifically.

When I was doing research on categories of what category my book should be in on Amazon, I found there are tons and tons and tons of book that are geared towards authors and writers of how to write better, how to write in general, how to self edit, how to promote your book, how to do the best wordbuilding possible.

There are so many¬†tools and they are amazing, fantastic¬†tools! However have you ever had one of¬†those days where you’re just like you’re¬†doing the best that you can? I mean the very best?

You’re giving over a hundred¬†percent to do the best that you can and¬†then feel and/or then be told that for¬†whatever reason, it’s not good¬†enough.¬†That you could be doing more.¬†That you¬†could be putting 200% in rather than¬†just a hundred and five percent.

Somedays, on those days you don’t need to be told¬†what you could be doing better.

You’re¬†doing the best you can and Dear Author¬†is what I wanted to share with young¬†writers, writers, and authors that you are¬†doing enough. You’re doing the best that¬†you can and I don’t want this to be a¬†book that tells you you need to be doing¬†all of your writing better. Or you need to¬†be copying this set author because¬†they’re making a bunch of money or they¬†seem to be very successful on a certain¬†social media platform.

NO!

You are doing fantastic!!

There are future fangirls that are ready for your story.

That is what I want to¬†convey. What my hope and my passion for¬†this book is (because it’s very much a passion¬†project for me).

I wanted authors to keep going.

I want writers to keep writing and to know that there is somebody, somebodies, who care about their story.

That they want¬†those words¬†to empower them and to encourage¬†them. Sometimes to lift them up, sometimes¬†remind them to keep going, That the¬†journey may be hard, but it’s worth it in¬†the end.

So as I looked at all these¬†different books teaching how to (and I’m¬†not knocking those books!), I want¬†there to be a different kind of book¬†that says “Hey, I see what you’re doing. Keep going.”

Dear Author: Letters from a Bookish Fangirl is exactly that.

It’s¬†joining these books, these ranks,¬†to encourage authors to keep¬†writing.

I¬†can’t wait to show you the cover in two weeks!

On November 4th,¬†the official cover¬†reveal day, I’ll be sharing¬†this book’s shiny cover, the pre-order links, the¬†Goodreads link, and the official launch date,¬†which is December 3rd.

If you’re totally¬†interested seeing the shiny cover (because it is so shiny! I love the colors.),¬†then totally sign up below!

Cover Reveal Sign-Up Form

You can share the cover on¬†any social media platform. I’ll send you all the links, I’ll¬†send you the cover, and I’ll send that all to¬†you a few days before the cover reveal date.

In the meantime though, if you would like¬†to do something fun and you’re like “Laura! I¬†want to hear more!” I can tell you that¬†the brief little tagline is on Goodreads¬†right now. ūüėÄ I’ll leave the Goodreads link¬†below, but know it’s totally on there to add to¬†your TBR!

 

I can promise you that this book will not be another book in your author toolbox telling you how you can do better, what you need to do better.

No, you are doing awesome, keep going. Here is all my feels, here is all the things I felt, and I really want you to know because I want you to keep going.

It’s truly a book I feel like is for¬†any writer no matter what stage they may be in.¬†From the very beginning of your¬†idea just now forming to I already have like ten books on Amazon.

I totally fully believe¬†in this message and stay tuned because¬†I’m going to be sharing a lot more fun¬†stuff with this launch! I’m hoping to do some¬†videos.¬†I’m definitely going to have some pre-order¬†swag goodies! (Shout to my street team for the idea to do stickers because that’s just one of the goodies!)

Thank you SO much for reading this post! Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and so encouraging. I totally would not be here without you guys! <3

Don’t¬†forget to check out the Goodreads link as well as sign up for the cover reveal!

Remember December 3rd is the official release day!!

I can’t wait to share this book with¬†you! <3
