After much bullying by people who claim to be my friends I’ve published this blog. Their hearts are in the right place I’m sure; left side of chest and all that, at least I hope so it’ll make it harder to stab them in the back if it’s on the right.
Very few people know me and that’s okay; makes it easier to blend in.
Two years ago I published my first book Underground Railroad as an indy author. I know; EW! That book did alright as I toured a few states and mostly sell by word of mouth. With the recent publishing of my second book in the Verian series, Hybrid, my so called friends are harassing me into ‘promoting’ and ‘spreading the word’.
First in that step was offering UR for free for 3days in celebration of Hybrid’s release. 1330 people took advantage of that offer world wide though Amazon. The second step was spamming the hell out of my friends FB pages. Apparently this is the third step. I’ve been told, that I need to “build trust” with the public and that “the more they trust you the more they’ll buy”. Personally I’ve bought very few books from author’s I’ve “trusted”. I buy them ’cause the look interesting and aren’t on the best sellers list.
Don’t expect regular updates or the secrets of the world answered here. Do expect random things that catch my interest; like crocheting, knitting, clones lace, sewing, photography, moving, hiking and yes writing along with a host of other topics.
Until my next post,
