Sir: The Awakening Advanced Copy of Chapter One
Hello, darling readers.
When you purchased Sir, I promised you a chapter from Sir: The Awakening if you visited my website. I’ve been having some problems setting up a downloadable copy (unless you join my mailing list, but that doesn’t help if you’re already on it; however I’ll get it to y’all somehow, promise), so I figured that I would just post it here. . .
Which I did. . .
For a day. Maybe two.
Then I went onto my Goodreads page only to discover that my ARC copy of Chapter 1 of Sir: The Awakening was front-and-center for all to see.
Sorry, y’all, but that flies about as well as a penguin.
I want people to go to my website. I don’t want people reading my blog from Goodreads. I don’t have a ton of time to write posts for TWO blogs (since, ya know, my darling readers want more books ASAP and I can’t be writing books if I’m contributing to two blogs).
So I may have to un-link my Behind the Curtains Blog from Goodreads, which makes me sad for the lovely 10 people who’ve already subscribed. I’ll try to remember to post some of my BTCB posts onto GR occasionally. And the unlinking is not happening immediately, but, this ain’t OK, yo.
And I’m really sorry to have to pull this ARC chapter before pretty much anyone saw it. Please, join my newsletter. You’ll get to read the first chapter of the next book. It starts the very next day from where we left off from Sir.
Since I have you, and apparently I’m a five-dolla ho, please don’t forget to leave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads for Sir. And you can be honest, I won’t cry (. . .much. . .)* Also don’t forget to like/follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (they all are @DLHessWrites, I tried to make it easy for you). I need all the help I can get, y’all, in order to get the word out. <3
I love and adore you,
*On one hand, I actually don’t mind – and kind of like – constructive criticism. Just don’t be a jerk about it (that’s when I cry, for realsies). If I don’t know what needs improving, I can’t work on it so that I grow in my craft – which needs growing, since the breadth of my experience in writing prose fiction is one short story class in college and helping someone else out with a couple of their books, like, three years ago. . . At the same time, I lurv positive reviews because it strokes my needy little ego, which feels fantastic. So, yeah. . . dealer’s choice.
Another thought? If you want to know why I did something or made a specific sartorial choice, you can message me on the contact page, and I can answer your questions in an author Q&A.
Anyway, I’m sorry about the FUBAR with just posting the chapter of Sir2 here and then ripping it away. Don’t hate me, please.
