To Release or Not to Release? That's the Real Question

After a crazy October/November, the Thanksgiving four day weekend became a time of recuperation for me. Here it is, Sunday, and I'm still not feeling my usual energy. To be honest, I didn't leave the couch all day Saturday (which gave me the opportunity to catch up on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills--OMG!--but that's a story for another time.)

With all this downtime, I decided to start formatting my January release, Chasing Adonis, for its eventual uploading to Amazon. Well, guess what? I was done in less than thirty minutes! So there it sits, on my Bookshelf, in "Pending" status, ready to go with just a push of the button.

The question now becomes: Do I leave it there until January? Or release it a month early? What do you think? Here's the blurb:

Every girl sees her thirtieth birthday as a milestone, but in Adara Berros's case, her entire life has turned upside-down. She may not know it, but Adara is actually the reincarnation of Greek mythology's Adonis. And she's about to be drawn into a centuries-old game between the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, with her eternal love as the grand prize.

Detective Shane Griffin senses trouble when he investigates an accident involving Adara and a mysterious stranger named Ted. Having lost his sister to domestic abuse, Shane suspects Ted is not the charming guy he appears to be. After he discovers Adara is the key witness for a murder trial, Shane vows to put his life and career on the line to protect her.

When Adara's life is threatened, she and Shane go on the run. Now, mortals and immortals alike are all...

...Chasing Adonis.

Is there a reason to wait?
