This morning I am preparing to do edits on my new book. I am not ready to release the name as I am really considering writing it in another name. But what I am working on is the promotion of Backroom Confessions. Although I have started my own company to promote myself, figuring why try to solicit a traditional publisher and still have to do the promotion myself, this I think is smarter. But it is so hard...Everyday I have to do something, mail a media kit, make a call, read email, and write, edit and write. On top of this still maintain my job that pays for all this. Writing I have found is easy, getting the word out about your book is hard. But I try to remember that nothing good that comes to you is easy. Yeah right! Some writers are fortunate enough to write that one book that takes them to the top- what a blessing! So I trudge along....Today I have to finish the edits on a manuscript that I have written 100 plus pages on. When I finish that I have to edit the new author that I just brought on, then I have to complete several assignments for my job. Wow! Already my butt is tired and hurting from sitting in this chair. But any level of success comes with hard work, but I must continue to do what I can to one day achieve my goal...So let me get back to writing...My break is over.
