This Has Been A Depressing Week, Please Be My Sunshine

Got a rather disheartening email from my editor. Book sales have been down all around which is really rather disappointing. She said she'll have to start getting rid of authors and titles that aren't selling and as I haven't made a sale in months I'm beginning to panic. I have seven books total to this series and only four have been published. I don't want to lose this chance. I have been struggling with so many things lately. I am just ready for a break.

So please make my day and buy some of my books. My very livelihood could very well rely on it. If you need the links to my books here you are: Blood & Magic, Dragons & Magic, Centaurs & Magic, and Corvids & Magic.

I need more books sold, I need more reviews, and I need new and renewed hope! Everything has been scary and frustrating and filling me with anxiety. Everyone says what will be will be, but I hope it holds good fortune for me and my books. I don't want this series to die and I really don't want this dream to be dashed. Please help me keep it alive!

Show Me the Love, Please?!

I could really use some help. Book sales are down, most unfortunately. I haven't gotten paid in months so I could really use some sales and some positive energy in relation to my books. Even prayer and just sharing this blog post helps! If you need the links to my books here you are: Blood & Magic, Dragons & Magic, Centaurs & Magic, and Corvids & Magic.

Also, also, also! If you enjoyed my books, I do appreciate you telling me that you liked them, but please leave me a review. I need 20+ reviews before I start really getting seen on Amazon so in addition to book sales I could really use some reviews, as well. I hate to sound like a broken record or irritate people, but it is really important. I'm not sure why getting people to review books is like pulling teeth, but it is and I'm just exhausted of repeating myself. So I can only imagine how tired you of hearing it so please REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW!

Also, thank you for sticking by me and showing an interest in me and my writing. As an independent author and writer I cannot tell you how much I truly appreciate your support, but I do! Thank you. You guys rock!

Let's Push This Dream All The Way

Hello, all! I think those two pictures pretty much sum up how I'm feeling right now. Things have been slow, and I could really use your help in getting them off the ground. If you need the links to my books here you are: Blood & Magic, Dragons & Magic, Centaurs & Magic, and Corvids & Magic.

Please don't allow me to be silenced. I have three more books to go in this series, and I would love a chance for people to be able to read them all. Also if you enjoy my books whilst it is perfectly fine to tell me, please leave me a review so my publisher can know. So many have personally told me which means a lot to me, it does, but my publisher needs to know; too. Please help keep my books afloat and help promote the dream of an indie writer. I would love you forever.

Also if you haven't purchased any of the books yet and would like to, please feel free. I thank you for both your time and your patience. I appreciate each and every person who has helped me get this far. Now let's push this dream further and see it through!

Writing From the Heart

Hey, all! I think it's some time for some real talk. I think writing just for money and prestige is wrong. I believe writing should flow out of your heart and soul and be the essence of who and what you are because I feel that writers are truly pulled into their craft and chooses them rather than the other way around, and I've read some writers who can use language well but left me feeling empty or bereft of any emotions because their writing is clearly for the money. Do I want money? Of course. Do I want prestige? It would be nice. It's not my only reason for writing, though. I want to enrich and heal the world and help people as my favorite writers have done me. I want to give people worlds and realms of solace where they can swim or jump into on a hot summer's day, fall in love with over and over again on a rainy spring day, enjoy near a warm fire in winter, and sit beneath a tree with in autumn.

I am not a media mogul or famous person who has people working media and promotions for them constantly so they can come out with a book one day and it be on the best seller's list the next. I am a struggling, independent writer trying to make her dream of relying solely on her writing to make ends meet because I have bills to pay just like anyone else. I would love to be comfortable so my family didn't have to worry me and to be able to spoil my friends and family and give more than a measly few bucks to charities or go fund me's every once in a blue moon when I can afford to. I want to make this world a better place and at the same time have the world be a better place for me, too.

I hope that in time my writing only improves and improves and ages like fine wine (oh, and let's be honest I hope my body does, too).

Here are the links to my books: Blood & Magic, Dragons & Magic, Centaurs & Magic, and Corvids & Magic. I also write poetry, short stories, reviews, essays, etc. So please leave me reviews, buy my books, promote by word of mouth, wish me well and pray. I really just want to make it. I'm struggling so hard to make my dream of being a full time writer a reality. Sooner or later, I will get there, but I rather it be sooner than later. So if all you can do is leave me a review or give me a word of encouragement, I will take that. There have been so many negative words said about me and my books and not all of the positive things I've heard from what my friends are saying are in reviews to combat them so trust me - any kindness, at all, is appreciated. Thank you all and if you're reading this, thank you for being here. Have a wonderful day.

Please Give Me a Review? I Would Appreciate It.

Hey, all! I'm asking for reviews for my books. Some people have told me they enjoy my books, but reviews help me get seen and let my publisher know that you enjoy my books, also!

Here are the links to my books if you are not yet acquainted with them: Blood & Magic, Dragons & Magic, Centaurs & Magic, and Corvids & Magic.

Corvids & Magic was released March 2017. It has no reviews yet which saddens me. Of course, it's better than having five negative reviews, but still...I have three books to go on this journey. I really don't want to lose my voice because of lack of perceived interest so please keep sharing my links if and when you are able should you be interested and give me some reviews if you enjoy what I do! I really, really appreciate you.

Thank you for being here.

Book 4, Blog Tour, Reviews

All right, everyone! You can pre-order my book Corvids & Magic. The pre-order is for the kindle version of the book only. I had erroneously thought since I had gotten my paperback copy of the book already through Createspace that the book was already "out". Clearly, it isn't supposed to come out until June 5th. So I'm sorry for any confusion this may have caused, but I'm sure my publisher had a method to her madness.

However, I do have a form that you can fill out here if you would be interested in being a part of my blog tour. This is for anyone who blogs books and authors on a regular basis. Feel free to sign up, the more, the merrier! I would truly appreciate it.

Also, reviews! Please review, review, review! I cannot stress that enough. If you know a friend who has enjoyed my books then please encourage them to review. It's the only way I'm going to be seen as I'm an independent writer and this series is my first to be published. Book 4 out of 7. It's pretty exciting, but I would like to continue. Please show my publisher that there is interest in my books. Thank you all!

Guest Blog Post & Other Things

Wow! I hadn't realized that I hadn't posted anything in January, I'm sorry about that! Well, if you guys didn't already see on FB I had a recent Guest Post about my novel Centaurs & Magic which some may find beneficial. It talks about my thought process when making the novel and what I was trying to achieve.

Also, I had another recent review for Blood & Magic. It was four star review so I appreciated that. I know that my book clearly isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it is nice to know that some people are enjoying it enough to leave me reviews. I do appreciate the good reviews. The bad ones are always disheartening, but I know that there's no making everyone happy.

I hope everyone has a good day, and if you want to check out my books feel free to do so! That would totally make my day. If you have a review that you'd like to write - leave that, too. I do enjoy positive input and criticisms as long as they are constructive and not just rude.
