Sometimes there is so much to do, it’s hard to figure out how to start. Trying to keep writing while doing my blog, answering email, updating Facebook and Twitter is just about a full-time job. Add housework and outside work to that and, well, why did I retire?
Seriously, it has been an adventure thus far and I’m looking forward to more. I have just finished the final rewrite of my next book, “Amargosa Blues” but I have to figure out which way to go with it. Self publishing is the easiest, however that’s going to take a cash outlay and then I have to sell, sell, sell, which so far I have not been good at. I don’t know what works and I don’t get the feedback that will tell me how I’m doing. For instance, I’ve had maybe five people drop by this blog since it’s been open, so I guess this is not a big factor in selling my book. However, I did put a PayPal button in the novel section, maybe that will help. Twitter, who knows? Facebook? I get a lot of cross talk, but I don’t know how it helps the book. I suppose I’ll just have to keep working at it.
Anyway, time to move along. I do have somewhere to go this morning: Starbucks.
