My last two posts were movie reviews, and I know you’re probably like “Wait, WTH is she doing???” and I’ll tell you… I get bored very easily. It shames me to say, but with everything on my plate, there are still times when I have to just sit there and scream “I’M BORED!!!” and I have to do something different. I figure that if you guys and girls really want to get to know me, that’s something you should be on the look out for.
As for the title… for me, it’s a real confessions moment. I have written 2 novels, the first of which was so badly edited, I had to take it down… then there’s another that is on sale, but I’m doing the tortoise vs the snail thing here. A few friends of mine are all excited for me, they think that because I wrote a book I’m awesome (or maybe that’s just my delusion LOL). But what they don’t know is that I’m still new to this. Like… ALL of this. I’m no good at promotion. I get annoyed when I see people posting on twitter about their books like every other tweet… or I go onto message boards and they have people answering honest questions with “In my book…” I don’t think I could do that.
Then there are some people that are just like “Buy an add” well, here’s the problem… at this current day and time, that’s not possible. That’s also why I don’t have a professional editor… they’re expensive!! Then there is the whole figuring out the different formats for different devices… Really, it’s hard for a girl to figure out!
Anyway. I don’t want anyone to think that I’m just sounding off just to complain. No. I’m happy to say that I’m in the market for a beta reader. I’m trying to hit a few old fanfiction places and seeing if I can lure one of them to help me out. Then I’m trying to be more active on Twitter. I have about 65 followers and I ❤ each one dearly. Then there’s my facebook family! I’m gonna start getting in touch with them a lot more. OH! And there’s a few review blogs that I’m going to start lurking on, and seeing if I can get my stuff reviewed.
So I guess what I’m really trying to say is that I don’t want anyone to give up on me. I’m still trying to get the hang of this. Oh, and if anyone DOES have a hang on this (especially the formatting thing… Smashwords is killing me LOL) drop a line!!!
See ya in the funnies!!!!
