It’s been one year since I published my first novel on March 14, 2019 – “When Shift Doesn’t Happen”. Thank you to all my “fans” who took the time to actually read it, and a special THANK YOU to those who went the extra mile and left a review on Amazon (if you purchased it) or on GoodReads (if you got it for free). If you have not left a review yet, why not? What is holding you back? I would appreciate your feedback and comments about the story, the book cover, the blurb on the back, and ways to improve my writing. I know you are an expert about writing and will have some good advice for me.
Hindsight is always 20/20. It seems my marketing mostly reached family and friends. But then again, I did not spend a bunch of money on advertising. I ignored to old saying of “you have to spend money to make money”. I made a whole whopping 162 bucks! Writing is definitely not a get rich quick scheme for me, and I am still over $1,000 in the hole. I think I gave away more books than I actually sold on Amazon. But, I am happy about it. For me, I started something, I completed it, and in the processed I learned a heck of a lot about the writing and publishing industries. It is like a new world opened for me and I still have a long way to go.
“What did you do since you published your first novel?” you may ask. To explain my silence, I wrote a couple of post. Read the post about “Writers groups” to see what I have been doing, and “Next Up” about what I am currently working on.
