Career decisions

I have to care less about the marketing and more about the work, or I'm going to go crazy. That's my new strategy in a nutshell: write more. It's become much too easy--and time consuming--to spend all my time perusing FB and doing takeovers and posting in groups in the hopes of selling a couple more books, getting a few more likes. It's too much and while I love the community, I can't do it anymore. I want to be a better writer, not a better marketer, and so the time to redirect my energies toward reading and writing has come.

Oh yeah, that feels good. ;) 


  1. Yay! I can't wait to read the next thing!

    Marketing is important, but isn't it also the next book that sells the others as much as anything? I say you spend the rest of the summer break reading and writing when you feel compelled. Then you can get back to the work of writing after your girls are in school.


    1. Yeah, one book feeds the next. And I think your suggestion is a good one, though I don't know that I can hold back writing that long, LOL. But the down time from writing will be spent reading instead of stressing over the next sales thing. :)
