Thank you for your support...I appreciate all of you--But!
Tonight I am absolutely tired. I had a book signing at the Black Expo today. I was only there three hours and sold almost 40 books which is good for a new self published author but I am tired. Book selling is hard work. When people want to buy your work you have to stand and talk to everyone. They have questions and want to know what motivated you, how long it took to finish the book, where else can I buy your book? Answering questions is not so bad, it's the standing on concrete and losing your voice. It is the being surrounded by several people and not being able to give everyone the same attention. I don't mind the talking but let me say this and I hope that I don't offend anyone..if you are going to purchase a book, please do because I certainly appreciate your support. I really do....trust me--you are my blessing. If you are not going to buy one, I still appreciate you for even stopping by to check us out. Thank you a million times. But if you are not purchasing and you just want to chat-please let me take care of the people trying to buy the book. I don't mind talking to you about my work, but please don't ask me about other authors and expect me to make negative comments, I will not do that. Please talk to me about my work and don't stand there bashing other authors. We are all trying hard to make a success out of what we love to do. We want you to enjoy our work and support us but please respect us and discuss our work and don't tell me negative things about other people. I am trying to be a positive black sister who support all people in their pursuits..it is unfair to expect me to participate in something that is wrong and unappreciated. Thank you for your continued support. Now I must get ready for bed so that I can go back in the morning and sell some more books......... oh yeah my lesson for today is this...God gave us all talents...let us use them and please support each other and let your talents soar--
