Beyond Control Release Date Reveal
A Guest Post in Three Parts by Kit Rocha
The awesome thing about self-publishing is that you get to set your own release date. When you’re finished with your book and have gone rounds with various flavors of editors and proofreaders, you get to send your book out into the wild whenever you want. No waiting! Awesome.
The terrifying thing about self-publishing is that you have to set your own release date. There are so many variables that go into getting a book ready for publication. What if you pick a date that’s too soon and you disappoint readers? What if you pick a safe one, and then you have a finished book that people could be reading now instead of in 2 months, on “release” day? Terrifying.
That’s why we’ve hesitated this long in announcing a release date for Beyond Control. It’s awesome knowing we can take as long as we want to get this book right, but it’s also a big responsibility to pick a date and decide, “That’s it. That’s when it will be out of our hands.”
But the day has come to pick the date. :) And since it felt like a pretty monumental choice to us, we decided to celebrate it. In video format.
Release Date: March 19th, 2013
(only 47 days to go. eeep!)
To celebrate our upcoming release date, we’re having a five day sale on Beyond Shame! For those of you who haven’t had a chance to meet the O’Kanes, here’s your chance to give them a try for under $1!

Putting books on sale is fun, but it’s just not enough of a celebration. So to throw a real party, we’re unveiling our most exclusive swag to date… custom O’Kane nail polish.

The Broken Circle

shimmer of sparkling gold. perfect for a sector four badass.
