She was just meant to be a job, a soul to be delivered for judgement.

After a close call with demons, I’m realising she is so much more.

An Update on Me

For what seems like a long time, I finally feel like things are on track but I’ve had a rough couple of months and it will most likely be a little while until things are back to normal.

  • Have there been less giveaways?
  • Have I not been as open on Instagram and Facebook?
  • Am I not online as much?

It’s all because I have had a tough time and I don’t want to burden readers with that stuff. It’s not your fault I didn’t have a job, it’s not your fault I felt so depressed and anxious I didn’t want to get out of bed for most of the last month.

Why am I telling you now? Because I feel like you deserve to know why I took a step back. It wasn’t just the fact that I had no job, it was a lot more than that and unfortunately, it all hit me at once.

I had to pull out from two events I had been really been hoping to attend, not only because I didn’t have any income but because Amazon decided to be snodbitches and remove Australian authors from getting their paperbacks, then came the closure of CreateSpace forcing me to look into alternate means of publishing paperbacks so I could attend signings. When queried with Amazon, they directed me to order paperbacks from the Australian store which does not have ‘Order Author Copies’ on the site. So in order for me to grab my own books (books I have slaved over and spent close to $500 or more on already), I’d have to spend $26-40 per book, not to mention shipping, to get them.

Yes, I tried IngramSpark but their format is different so I’ve had to reformat my interior file. I did, thinking this would be great, the company is in Australia which means faster delivery and cheaper since it’ll be in my own currency but I couldn’t get that far. No matter the guidelines I follow, it doesn’t want my interior file. So…I became frustrated but will I give up? No. This is my dream, I want to publish my stories, because they need to be read. I know I have great stories and I will continue to publish no matter the bumps in the road.

For now, I am going through a writing phase where I will write and write, until I feel comfortable publishing again. At the moment though, I am re-writing the Fallen from Grace series because I want to push them into 1st person like my other books and because I feel it easier writing this way. And thanks to my pal Lou at Gray Global Creations, she has re-done all of my covers and they are SMASHING!

Authors and Bloggers, please reach out to me if you need anything like a media packet or a giveaway for your new release/party. I can offer things that don’t cost money to me and still help you with your new release.

Readers, please reach out to me if you have any concerns, want to buy a paperback, want to ask me about future signings or anything really. I’m always happy to chat 🙂

Until then,

Be kind to one another and keep on readin’.

New Year Blues…

What does it mean or even what does it say about an author when they are thinking of leaving the game? Don’t get the wrong idea, I still love, breathe, desire, crave writing and reading but I am completely lost in the marketing side.

It’s not easy, yes I get that, but for the past 2 years I have relentlessly promoted, marketed, paid exorbitant amounts of money to get my books out there and I have yet to see even a 5 cent profit. Do any self-pubbed authors make money? It’s putting a strain on me financially, and emotionally.

For those few who review my work and love what I write, I am boosted up and can’t wait to release the next one until it comes time for the arc review and I cower in the corner, turn off social media until I am ready to face the facts. Being an author is full of doubt, fear, emotional turmoil and just a little bullying – yet another factor of why I could do without it.

Why stay?

Well, I have thought about it at length, and have come to the conclusion of this:

a) I have met so many amazing people in the same boat as me and yet they don’t appear to be breaking down and failing at life every week. They build me up and set me on my way only for me to fall again a few months later. I cherish those friendships, and would never want to leave it behind.

b) the feeling of holding a book with my name on it feels f*&king amazing. I did that, it may have taken me four months of anguish, but I DID THAT.

c) even though it is emotional and wrecks me financially, I feel like I belong in the community. I feel love, and friendship every time I open my app. I’ve never felt like I belong anywhere before.

d) people love my writing. They may be few, but they are loyal and I could never ask for better readers. They also build me up when I am low, although they may not see the side my fellow authors see, they make me feel alive and without even knowing they do. I heart all of my readers, even those who don’t like my words and write me reviews which take my breath away – you still read my book, you still gave me a chance and for that I thank you. All I could ever ask is to be given a chance.

In conclusion, yes, I feel isolated at times, and cranky at the world. I face pain and anguish at the corner of every scene and chapter but I couldn’t give this up. Once I’m in, I’m in for life. The only thing I can do to help myself out is to listen to the words everyone tell me, not to think so literally about everything, not to give in to negative people and to just be me.

After watching someone I greatly admire, Meryl Streep, take a stand at the Golden Globes and mention a quote from another person I greatly admired, Carrie Fisher – I’ll take my broken heart and make it into art.
