After selling over 800 #ebooks, the next story in my bestselling series is now online free to read at hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/forgestriker-hit-series.html#.WqvWnujFLIU
I would not have said I was a romance author
This week, I contacted http://www.austinmacauley.com/us/about-us, while I did not get a YES. I DID a get a reply to my e-mail which is more than I expected, so I am taking this as a plus.
The reply came after I sent a ten-page sample of my romance (Aliyah). I approached them because I am seeking publishers of Jewish fiction.
The irony isn't lost on me
How often does somebody say that they have time on their hands?
The irony for me is that after this month I won't be online, so I will have time on my hands, even if my hands are in braces most of the time.
Will I be missed?
As I won't be writing after this month, I will probably be using the time to catch up on reading I should have done over the last decade.
I will also be playing some video games, not the Pro Evolution series, or John Madden series I use now to relax but games like
As this post disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-indieworld/existentialism_and_whiskey/ shows, I can still surprise people by my reading habits.
The weather this week in the UK reminds me of my final visit to Canada disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-indieworld/it_is_like_canada_today/
The Kirov Theatre
Not many people would think I had been to the opera; I went once here in Bristol.
When I was at school we visited the Kirov Theatre, the image I was left with is one of the poverty of people living near while this opera house has money to spare.
This week, my page on Disqus https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-indieworld/sci_to_channel/ took a new breath of life, linking with the channel https://disqus.com/home/channel/scifi/.
The traveller is at home
In the past, at this time of year, I would be looking forward to one of the visits I used to make usually to Cheltenham for a music festival.
Now, all I have to look forward to is attempting to avoid debt and perhaps saving for some DVDs of foreign films https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-indieworld/foreign_films/.
I don’t take a lot of notice of the ratings on Amazon, but when I am in a state of doubt about my ability as a writer, to see my selection – not the books I used to write – have days of big leaps is heartening for me.
A fourth blog
For a while, I have been thinking about opening a fourth blog on Wix, some people tell me that the more coverage I have, the better my sales opportunities become. I wish I could believe this.
One reason for not starting on Wix is I tried several years ago and did not like the site; I have no expertise in HTML coding which would have helped set up an impressive site.
I have three blogs ongoing now not to mention writing on various pages on Disqus, and to be honest, I am thinking of closing my blogs down. I have been blogging for over 10 years, and have seen little – if any impact on sales – the only thing about the blogs is it gives my readers a free read.
