It’s Been Awhile


I haven’t posted anything for close to two months now. After posting on a regular basis for a couple of years, I reached the point where there were only negative things to discuss and I didn’t want to go down that road. As my mother always said, if you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. So I stepped back and watched in amazement as other bloggers that I have followed for years, posted (and continue to post) at least once every single day, if not twice. I don’t know how they find the time, let alone come up with anything to say.

I chose instead to focus on completing my next novel, Hanging From the High Wire, and now I have. At the moment, it’s just over 250 pages. I am working on my concept for the cover. I’m thinking the main character should be hanging off the title. I have the perfect photo to use, so it’s just a matter of figuring out the proper graphics.

Of course, in the back of my mind I am already trying to work out how I can, and will, promote it’s release. Although sales have increased this year for one of my books in particular, I cannot decipher the rhyme or reason. I am not yet selling the way I want. I think, amongst other things, I am going to have to figure out that baffling maze that is Goodreads. No doubt it would help if our internet didn’t go out constantly.

Oh well, I am going to break through sooner or later. In the meantime, I hope you are all well and as always, suggestions are welcome. If you have some great promotional ideas, by all means, let me know!
