I have been reading some other sites and blogs the past few days. I have been on a break from marketing. To be honest, I am tired of seeing funds leave my pockets with little return.

I am in the middle of writing my third novella of a series. The first two were easy. The books were very manageable, in fact. This third one...not so much.

This week, I am a … Continue reading Growing Pains…Getting Off Track and Refocusing
I know, it is a part of the self-publishers life, but PLEASE HELP! I am so tired of the marketing full- time, writing part-time and going nowhere. When can I sit back and relax? Watch the money come in? I know the answer. I just don't like the answer. I fell into the trap that … Continue reading Growing Pains… More Marketing? Ugh!
