In my mind I'm like this sparkling unicorn. Full of magic and miracles and devoid of the impossible.
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.
