I feel like I've been a little lax on the blogs of late. To be honest I'm not entirely sure who reads them but I like to keep folks updated, so I try to check in.
I'm sort of knee deep in trying to market. It is very hard to self market. Word of mouth is everything. It takes one person to trash my work and I'll never be credible again, but it takes 100 people to like my work to start making headway into the mainstream. Of course my ultimate goal would be to make enough money writing books to support my family, but right now every single reader and fan is a huge success, so to all those that read these: THANKS! You have no idea how much you mean to me and how much I value you and your feedback. Yes I welcome random feedback. It's how I improve as a writer.
I have a third book in the works. I wasn't going to publish it even though it is one of my personal favorites because I always thought it was fluffy dreck. I sent it to a friend whose opinion I value only to find out its good. So now I'm in the process of rewrites to clean up the things I don't like and make nice and shiny. I don't know when I'll have it out but I'm shooting for July. After this one I'm done with the finished work sitting idly on my hard drive and will turn to unfinished work giving them life.
The way I look at it, as long as I love what I do, I'm just going to keep pumping the books out and hope others enjoy what I do as much as I do. This has been a dream so far and it just keep growing. :-)
