Well, not quite a month since my first eBook made its appearance. It’s been an interesting journey so far. Finally getting the hang of Tweeting. I don’t think I was prepared for how interesting this journey would be. When I was younger dreaming of becoming an author, it was before the internet. I saw myself touring the country, going to bookstores to do signings. I don’t think even the big name writers do that much anymore. They do have the option to go on television talk shows though.
It’s a double edge sword having social media and the internet. I can reach people easier, and go places I can only imagine, but I almost wish I could have started publishing when actual book tours still occurred. When I told a friend that they do them virtually now, she seemed a bit perplexed. She only uses technology as much as she has to. I on the other hand have always been a nerd when it comes to technology, and possessed some natural abilities for figuring it out. That has saved me more than once.
I think the trick with social media and writing is figuring out how to balance them. I’m still working on that. I’ve been so gung ho about marketing my novella, I haven’t made as much time for my next book. When I don’t write, I’m not in my happy place.
Right now, I’m working on a short novelette that I hope will be published in LS Books’s Afternoon Delights. Something quick to keep me motivated to finish up Strange Magic, Book 2 of my Spellbound series. Eventually, I will set up a newsletter and provide and easier way to follow me. Life is a bit chaotic at the moment.
I have some more promo events coming up. A guest blog spot on my editor’s website on April 2nd, and an Author Q&A on All Romance eBooks Café on April 24th. I will be posting more information and links as the dates get closer. Both are opportunities to get to know me better as a writer and why I have written Wicked Magic.
For those of you buying and reading Wicked Magic, thank you. The next installment will go up to a heat level 3, and will give a better idea of where I am taking the series. It will be populated with witches, magic and some shape shifters. I hope you will come along on the journey with me.Share This:
