Oh, and a Happy New Year to friends, readers, and followers!
Thank you to all my followers for helping to inspire me to keep writing every day.
I wasn’t expecting to gain many readers and I like to think I would keep writing anyway. However, having readers to interact with definitely gives me that little extra oomph — so thank you all for that.
Here are links to my most recent followers.
In the future, I’ve been considering posting “Shout Outs” to my most interactive followers. 🙂 Everyone deserves some extrinsic motivation! 😀
When I first started this blog I didn’t really know what I was getting into. My intention was to encourage myself to write more, connect with other writers and readers, and build a platform for my “brand”.
Gaining followers that not only shared interactions with me, but also inspired me with their own writing, which is just icing on the cake!
I have a lot of New Year’s resolutions for 2018 and I plan on sharing them in upcoming posts!
One of goals is to write more often on this blog, even if it’s really brief. Another goal I have is to write more book reviews. It’s important to support other authors. Books are important and I’m going to make sure my actions speak this truth.
After all, I had mentioned that I would be doing reviews for books (for example, Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older) I recently read. Unfortunately, I was also in the process of republishing my first book that was orphaned after my publisher went out of business. And then when I tried to be an Indie publisher (mind you, with a full-time job, and three sons) I got disheartened with how poorly I felt I was doing compared to other authors like this guy. My husband ADORES Chris Fox. Chris has a lot of good advice, but he’s no longer in the trenches like little old me so . . .
Anyway, if you write reviews, you’re awesome sauce.
If you’re an avid reader and aren’t putting in that extra effort, please consider it! Writers NEED YOU!
My first middle-grade fiction novel was released about 10 days ago! 🙂
So far, I’ve had two purchases! 🙂 🙂
Whoever you are, I thank you much! I’d be honored if you wrote a review.
On Monday, my proof copy arrived and I’m looking forward to writing the second book of the series, “Moondust”.
