My Author's Life
Anyone that tells you that being an adult is easy is lying. I'm 53 and you'd think life would be getting less complicated. That I'd learn to go with the flow, but that's not the way it is. I'm mature enough to realize I'm responsible for my own schedule. It's not the things that make it to my to-do list that adds pressure to my life. It's all those other things I know I should be doing and aren't. For instance, I'm a writer. That means readers expect me to produce books. From a business prospective, if I want to stay relevant in an already oversaturated market, I need to consistently publish something new. I also have to promote my books because, hey, these books don't sell themselves. That means time on social media, finding creative ways to attract potential readers attention. This is in addition to a fulltime day job, my family, and an active church life. There are days where there isn't enough of me to go around. I feel like Michael Keaton in the movie, Multiplicity. Where is the machine that let's me duplicate myself so I can accomplish more? Unfortunately, real life isn't a movie. I can't tweak the script to make things go the way I want. All I can do is take it one day at a time. Sometimes, that means stuff doesn't get done, and I have to be okay with that. Anyways, apologizes for being late with the newsletter. I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July.
I had 2 non-fiction projects that consumed my time, and I'm working on a 3rd. If you're an author, or considering becoming one, check these out. If you know any authors you think can uses these, please spread the word. Marketing romance books is hard. Spreading the word about non-fiction workbooks is even harder.
My next non-fiction project is a step-by-step, how to guide for writing romance novels. If anyone has any questions they've always wanted to ask, let me know.
