Promotion Day Two!

Indie authors can’t do it alone. We are dependent on supportive readers who are eager to share the hidden gem that they have discovered.

On day two of my 99 cent promotion, I’ve been blessed by many who have shared a Facebook link, forwarded an email, or told a friend about my books. Actually, it’s very humbling, indeed.

I also have been re-tweeted by books sites and cross-promoted on sites like PeopleReads. It’s been a great first day and I’m so thankful for readers who care enough to help.

Two days left. Let’s sell a few more books!

Working for Every Sale

Being an Indie Author isn’t easy.

And yet it isn’t necessarily hard, either.

What it most certainly is, however, is time-consuming.

As I approach the one year anniversary release date of “Beauty Rising”, I beginning to understand one thing: I have to work for every sale.

And as I said, it isn’t easy.

The trajectory is more like a roller coaster rather than a rocket launch. I learned that vividly a couple weeks ago when I had my best sales day ever – and it wasn’t with my new novel – it was with my debut novel. (more on this in an upcoming post)

What is easy is to do nothing. That’s super easy. Write a book, publish it and do nothing.

But if I want to be a successful author, an author who one day could actually write to make a living, I have to work for every sale.

So this is a post of re-affirmation. I’m not going away as an indie author. Sales may climb or fall, but I’m going to continue to do what I love – write. I’m going to continue to do what I don’t love – promote, simply because I believe in my writing and I am humbled by the overwhelmingly positive reviews from readers around the world who have read my works. They have given me courage to go on. It could be easy to get discouraged, but I won’t have it. I’m incredibly lucky to be able to write and have people want to purchase my works. I am indebted to each and every one and I will continue to write stories which are worthy of purchase.

Writing is the easy part. Spreading the word is the hard part. But it is the hard parts of life which make everything worth it, right?

So once again, thank you to all who have purchased “Beauty Rising” and “The Recluse Storyteller.”  If you like it, please recommend it to a friend.
