New Year New Start

Okay i’ve been very very lazy in recent months keeping this blog up to date but i am going to do my best to rid my self of my procrastinating ways and keep you informed of my writing woes.

Recently my good friend Gabi published ‘Deadly Obsession’ on kindle and has done wonders promoting and marketing her book that its put me quite to shame. Don’t get me wrong i am pretty good at promotion, just as long as it isn’t me!!!

I guess i have read so  many great unpublished novels from excellent word workers that i really can’t compare my own work to theirs on an equal level.

I am just about to start another story which i will try and put up regular excerpts from in hope that you will give me constructive and honest critique along the way.

Since I will be opening my new restaurant soon time will be a tiny bit stretched but then they say when you want something done give it to a busy person, which i’m definitely going to be.

  1. Hey Verity. I am glad to see that you still exist. How did your adventure with Kindle go?
    I just published my kids book titled “Pippy, The Miracle of a Dream” in late November. It’s on Barnes and Noble.com and on Amazon. I’ve had the trouble with marketing but everyone says to just be patient but I want it to soar!! What is the best way to market it in your opinion?
    Well, best of luck to you.

    • Hi Bob, sorry i’ve been out of the loop for a while but just starting to get back into things now, thanks to my good friend Gabi. I’m still really learning the ropes as far as marketing myself is concerned, i seem to be better at promoting other people than myself. Everything Gabi says is pure gold in her comment because i’ve found my sales have grown since i attached my blog to my facebook page(which i used to never use) and created a page for the book itself. It seems the online forums and the social networks are the place to be. I’ll add the link to your book to my site then it will give you an outlet here too. i hope you are well and look forward to taking a look at ‘the miracle of a dream’, take care. V
