I've been trying to chart my progress as a published writer. The ups and downs, the frustrations and the joys. A while back someone said that if you have more than one book out you can gradually build a fan base. That basically has been my goal. True, I only have two novels out at the moment, but don't worry, there is more! *G* And with each novel I hope I learn something new.
The first learning curve was how to edit a heck of a lot better, along with really focusing down on what is important to the story. "Games' has a couple of flaws but at the time I didn't realise they were flaws. Not to say it isn't a good book--take a look at the reviews. I know people have truly enjoyed it.
What I have noticed, however, is that the numbers have jumped with the second book. By that I mean, both people buying and people taking interest. I am hoping that is because they did enjoy "Games" and want a look-see at "Voice of the Land". Whatever the reason it gives me a great deal of joy.
What I have been doing is quietly twittering, blogging (yes, prob too much but I was so excited by that review yesterday), and just being 'there'.
I am excited about our official launch on FB on sat at 3.pm. EST. There may not be a ton of people going but the ones who have already signed up are going to make it a lot of fun. Do come along; the more the merrier! Just look for my name and you'll find me. There is a Goodreads giveaway but I should think of something else as a prize just for coming. Any ideas?
