Celebrating the Release: The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare by M.G. Buehrlen

The day has finally come. My debut novel, THE 57 LIVES OF ALEX WAYFARE has been released into the wild.  I AM SO EXCITE. Here’s how the process felt for me (and I’m sure many of the other OneFours) along the way. And check out the invite to my Twitter Launch Party at the bottom of the post. I’d love to see you there.

While plotting the book:

Upon finishing the book:

Querying agents:

Signing with an agent:

Going out on submission:

Selling the book:


Revision Hole:

When early reviews start rolling in:

The day before release day:

Release day:

The day (and let’s be honest, the YEAR) after release:



Even after riding that constant emotional roller coaster, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. It’s simply the BEST career path in the world. (I may be a bit biased.)

So grab some cake and coffee, put on your PJs, and come celebrate with fellow release-day author Shannon Messenger and me for an online Twitter launch party tonight (March 6th) at 9pm EST!

We’ll be answering your burning questions, playing a little truth or dare, and giving away door prizes throughout the night. We guarantee shenanigans. And photo/video evidence of our dares…

We’d love to see you there!
