Launch Week Fun!

A big thank you to everyone who helped me launch Three Shots to the Wind! I am so blessed to have so many people in my life who support my writing career.

The week started with A Day in my Life post on Dru’s Book Musings. It was fun to write something from Vivi Slidell’s point of view.

On the day Three Shots to the Wind released I had two exciting events. The first was a radio interview for Joy on Paper. Author Rita Moreau interviewed me and the time flew by! You can listen to the interview here. Scroll down on the website just a bit for a link to the interview!

That night I did my first in-person bookstore event in over two years at the amazing One More Page in Arlington, Virginia with author Libby Klein. The seventh book in her Poppy McAllister mysteries, Antique Auctions Are Murder, came out at the end of February. I was flustered and panicked just before leaving for the event. This is live. I need bookmarks. I need shoes! But I pulled it all together and we had so much fun chatting! You can watch the interview here. It’s a bit jumpy in the beginning but settles down.

Then I was on fabulous author Tara Laskowski‘s blog What Scares You? She asks such great questions. You can find out what scares me here.

Yesterday I visited Jungle Red Writers. I talk about two of the things that inspired Three Shots to the Wind. Here’s a link to the blog.

A special thanks to my readers, reviewers, bloggers, and people who shared my social media posts. It meant so much to me! Wickeds, I love you and can’t wait to see some of you at Malice. A big thanks to my family who go out of their way to make me feel special.

Readers: Do you have a favorite kind of launch event?

31 Thoughts

  1. Personally, I like the in-person book signings the best. Whether it is the official launch event or just the “standard” book signing event as part of a tour. I like these events best because I can buy the book and have it signed while getting to have at least a few seconds to actually speak with an author.

    I’ve done Facebook launches over the last few years (mostly because of the pandemic) and they have been fun but they don’t replace the fun of an in-person signing.

  2. You’re a busy bee, sounds exciting! I like the Facebook events, fun way to get to know the author and other followers. Personally, my most favorite launch event is when we get our camper on our campsite for the first day of the season!

  3. Congratulations on the release of “Three Shots to the Wind” – another fabulous book! Enjoy all the excitement and fun!

    Love them all! Just wish I was able to attend more in person ones. They always sounds like so much fun.

  4. I love the energy of an in-person book launch (I am going to one tonight!), but I really appreciated the online launches during 2020/2021, because I was introduced to so many more authors whose in-person events I probably would not have attended.

  5. Sounds like a perfect way to launch such a great book! Congratulations

  6. Online launches. They give me access to writers I could never travel to see in person. It’s so much fun to see and listen to the writer.

  7. Congratulations again, Sherry! Can’t wait to meet you at Malice! Your success is so well-deserved. Everyone loves your books and this second series.

  8. Congratulations, Sherry. Sounds like Three Shots to the Wind is off to a great start. I don’t do Facebook events because they stress me out and make me unhappy. But I do like to mix it up with in-person events and Zoom events for places I can’t get to.

  9. I love in person events, and got to go to two in February. It was wonderful to do them again. There aren’t as many as there used to be in So Cal, so I appreciate all the virtual events I’ve gotten to do the last two years.

  10. Super congratulations, Sherry! I am so happy for you that you were able to have an in-person event! I love parties for launches, especially at libraries!

  11. I love them all. I am pretty laid back. It is all fun. Thank you for sharing. God bless you.
