I wanted to kick off a new year with an update about my upcoming novel exploring my life in public relations hell.
This year, I made great progress and I am working on finishing the 13th draft of my novel. After I complete two more drafts, I will publish the first volume of my novel series later this year as a digital and paperback book. I also plan to look into Amazon’s new hardback book service with this book.
I love how my novel is coming out. I started this blog in early 2019 to cope with my growing dissatisfaction with my long-time public relations career. It has been a lifeline for me, helping me deal with my ongoing job frustration.
Finally sharing my frank views on the dark side of the public relations industry and just how nightmarish and heartbreaking it can be to work as a publicist or public relations executive has proved a liberating experience for me.
I was hoping to have my book out sooner but a combination of financial difficulties and the impact of the covid pandemic delayed my novel’s launch.
However, with recent developments and trends in the job market including the Great Resignation, this year is the perfect time to share my novel.
Once I publish my first PR hell novel next year, I will begin working on the second volume of my series for launch in 2023 or 2024.
Stay tuned for upcoming book cover reveals and other book launch details later this year.
I wanted to give a quick update on the status of my Life in Public Relations Hell book based on this blog. I am thrilled to share that this weekend I completed the first draft of my upcoming book.
I love how it is coming together. It is turning out to be an epic novel — 55 chapters and more than 600 pages — detailing the funny, crazy, strange, heartbreaking tales from my long-time public relations career. As you can already tell from my blog, I hold nothing back in the frank and honest way I describe the up and downs of working in public relations. Not all of the chapters in my book will end up on my blog as I will save some exclusively for my novel.
I plan to take a short break before starting on the second draft of my novel. I am planning that this novel will need about 9-10 drafts before it will be ready to share. So, that should take me about a year or two before my novel is ready to publish on Amazon, etc.
So far, it has been an incredible journey exploring my angst, heartbreak, frustration and honest feelings about my PR career and the public relations industry overall through my novel and this blog. I can’t wait to share as this will be only the first volume of many planned novels depicting my public relations experiences.
In the meantime, please return to my blog periodically as I will be sharing a new post of a chapter from my upcoming novel each month or two as I work toward completing a final published book.
