Wouldn't it be nice if that were true?
I've been at this author game for a while now and it is like a game. I think I know the rules and they change - whether it's Amazon, Facebook or even the recent GDPR changes...something is always changing. Just when I think I have it sorted something new comes along and I have to figure it out.
The writing is the easy part, at least for me. That's where the real magic happens. I love starting a new book or a new series because that's what I'm in this for. I love the characters and going on the journey with them. A lot of the other things are things one must do to sell books.
Unlike a lot of authors I quite like social media, I like people and interacting with them. I love hearing from readers and
I like connecting with other authors.
I don't however love doing newsletters and some of the pure marketing aspects of being an author in the 21st century and as I have what amounts to a full-time job sometimes I have to make decisions about how I spend my time. I'm pretty sure I often make the wrong ones or my book sales would be better than they are but a girl can only do so much.
Still, I do like blogging and I've been running this blog for over 5 years now so I have made a vow to myself that I'll get back in a rhythm as of June or next week.
Expect: Musical Monday, Taste of Tuesday, Writing on Wednesday all to make a reappearance as well as posts by other authors on these and other topics.
