I've wanted to be a published author since I was a kid. My dream came true when I had a short story published in the literary journal of the junior college I attended. My next success came a few years later when I had a short story published in the literary journal of the university I attended. Both journals were in print, but the overall readership and distribution...I'd be surprised if more than 500 people read either story.
That was more than 20 years ago when ebooks were in their infancy along with audiobooks and a new creature called an "e-zine."
Electronic magazines were starting to pop up, trying to collect the musings of writers in thematic volumes before the blog boom. But did these pioneering e-zines cultivate or crash the dreams of the submitting authors?…Continue
Last week I had a few bad days. A conflict at work was niggling at me. Things weren’t going well with an editor. Work on my latest book was dragging. The stress turned into a giant migraine, making me cancel my classes for a day—something I detest doing.
I spent Thursday nursing my headache and feeling sorry for myself, saying dumb things like, Why is everything going wrong? Then I asked myself a question: Under these circumstances, what would Diane Lockhart do?Continue
In a previous post, I recommended doing one thing per day, every day, to promote your book. If you took that advice to heart, you're probably currently in the process of building a "marketing checklist" and might also be wondering what to put on it. In addition to the items I suggested, here are three additional ideas to include:
Easy. I’m not going to.
That question was the subject line of an email that taunted me from my inbox. At first I didn’t want to look at it. After the official launch of my first book, I was riding high on the positive waves of the newly published. There had been an amazingly well-attended party, the line graph on Author Central began shooting upward and there were great reviews -- three of ’em! I did not want to read about rejection in any form whatsoever. No sir. Not this girl. No way.
And then I gave in, because we writers are nothing if not our own saboteurs. I got a momentary reprieve: the link in the email led me to a collection of other articles about dealing with rejection. Still reeling from acceptance, I was hesitant to stick my toes…Continue
I know those Kindle lists are fickle, so I'm enjoying it while it lasts! Thanks to all who have given it a try!…
I love this post and can totally relate to it. I am not as fortunate to have circumnavigated the rejections quite yet but know in my heart my day in the sun will come. My main criticism comes from the place you most need support from, your partner. Never having even read my work it was instantly disregarded as a waste of time. With age comes obstinacy and having alwats been a determined person I may have consigned my efforts to a plastic storage box, for a few years, now it is back amongst…
3 ways Spain has influenced my life
1. While walking along Las Ramblas with Abra on our aforementioned college students backpacking around Europe trip, we found the inspiration for the tattoo we would get to commemorate our trip. It was the various moonscapes of the many spray paint artists along the street which motivated us to create a tattoo of a world with wings. It displays Europe…
