An Author I Am

A few years ago, when I published my first book, my daughter looked at me and said, “You’re an author now?”  My reply was, “I guess you can say that.”  I didn’t go to your typical publishing company.  Mainly because I couldn’t afford their service, still can’t. But I done the next best thing, thanks to an awesome friend for the tip, and done it myself online.

I figure one of these days I’ll get to that point where I can go to the bigger businesses and get my name out there through them.  Until then, I’ll have to do it on my own.

But when my daughter said that to me, I couldn’t picture myself as an author.  At the time I was associating the term author with such people like J.K. Rowling.  And I was nowhere near it.  I dream that one day I’ll reach that level, but until then, I’m just little ole me.

My first book did sell great at first.  Huge thanks to my hubby who promoted it at his work. 🙂  But that’s what I’m lacking.  Someone to promote my work because I suck at it.  For me to promote myself I feel like I’m bragging, or trying to shove something into people’s faces.  And that’s not me.  Hence the reason why it hasn’t sold in a while.  But I’ve come to the realization that in order for me to get my name out there and to sell loads of books (present and future books), I need to start.

So here it goes…

Click on the image and pick up your copy today (the $14.99 one). The other options for buying my book is not associated with me so therefore I’ll never get paid for those purchases.

The One

Now I can concentrate on writing the sequel to this one AND finish the other book I’ve started during November when I signed up with NaNoWriMo.

That was an experience to say the least.  It was my first time joining the site, and one I will join again.  If I don’t get the book finished before then, I’ll finish it off with their help again.  The cover to this story I already have.  It’s the cover to the sequel I’m still working on. Hopefully with a friends help, I’ll have that soon and will have something to promote yet again.  So stay tuned.

Speaking of writing, I best be off now.  I have my usual duties to get done around the house before I can sit back with another cuppa tea, sit back and start writing.

Thank you for popping by to read my posts,,, ❤

Until next time.

This & That

Welcome December

Well, December is finally here.  Didn’t take long.  So now I have to make a list of things that I hope to accomplish this month.

  1. Gut house
  2. Decorate house
  3. Write books
  4. Stock up on booze (by the time I’m done writing, I’m gonna need it)

Even tho NaNoWriMo is officially over, that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing on the new book.  I’ve got the chapters listed out to help keep me on track.  Plus, I feel this will be the book everyone will love. 🙂

And now that I’ve experienced my first one (NaNoWriMo), I’ll be sure to have something already in the works instead of starting from scratch.  Even though, that’s probably how you’re supposed to do it, but with my daily things I found it a little hard to write every day for a month.  Especially where you have to have 50K words to be rewarded with your ‘2015 Winner’ banner.

The kids started eating their chocolate countdowns today.  I found the one that goes right to New Years this time.  They usually stop at Christmas Day.  Gotta love the extra few days of sugar, LOL

Anyway, I must get back at my lovely housework. *note sarcasm*  But someone’s gotta do it.  I might have to take my wand back to Ollivanders shop to get it checked out.  The cleaning spell don’t seem to be working with it. 🙂

Until next time,

K ❤
