I, with the help of three young ladies and my daughter-in-law taped the Turkey Shoot commercial. Now I have to think of a catchy name. I need something that will draw readers to this video and my book. I will have to think about that because I have been a flop at naming my books. My second book is called Bloody Angle. Now to me that is a great title and I know that it is a great book but the vast world is not interested.
I have always wanted to write. Create a book that would capture readers and make them wanting more of my tales. My mother told me that writers do not make money so I majored in marketing management. This career field was not something that I wanted to pursue but it made my mother happy. It took many years but I have come to the realization that my mother was right. Well this writer has not made any money.
My editor knew the frustration that I was going through with all the rejection letters and gave me the name PublishAmerica. I filled out the paper work and sent a sample of my work and to my great surprise; they wanted to publish my books. It is hard to find the right words for the elation that ran through me. The words that I had waited to hear were said about my work. Of course, I did not read the part where it said that I was responsible for promoting my books. PublishAmerica did a wonderful job on the book covers and I was pleased. Now I have a new problem because I have these great books but promoting is not my forte. I should have paid attention in all of those marketing classes and read the contract.
It is hard enough to be judged by your work but to have your work dismissed because of the publishing house is not fair. I have two great books that will not be read because they have been labeled vanity books. Every book that is published is a work of vanity. Authors do not write for the sheer pleasure of writing. We write because we want people to acknowledge us, buy our books and praise the authors for their great style, usage of words and intriguing plots.
This blog is a wonderful place to vent or rejoice because my audience is faceless and does not pass judgment on my words. In this place I can bare my soul, cry my tears and not be forced to explain my feelings because there is no one out there to criticize or commiserate with me. Explanations are not needed for my voiceless audience.
This is my horoscope for today. Today is great for setting up travel plans or for actually taking off. You are so connected to the world as it is that you should find obstacles merely distractions -- and temporary ones at that!
I am connected to the world? I have been waiting to connect to someone. I will be waiting world for you to let me know that there are people out there that would like to connect with me.
