My Babies Need Me…

I’m thinking of not doing anymore promoting for my books. It’s hard to get noticed when everyone is doing the same thing as you are. Getting noticed is so hard these days with online techniques, even for free. It’s become a detraction. I know I have to do this to get sales, but this is ridiculous. The writing of my novels is much more important than trying to get noticed when the books are not all finished. I have 3 more books to get done. With all this ‘advertising‘ I have to do and getting hardly nothing out of it in the ‘free market‘ it’s getting to not be worth it. I can’t shell out $35 a month or a week to get noticed. My boyfriend Jon isn’t made of thousands of dollars. We have bills to pay. Food to put on the table. On top of that, Facebook is a major detraction to me now. I’m not going to remove my Facebook pages, but I will not be posting anything until all the other three books are finished. If I have a gift to share with the world I must bare this burden by myself.

My books are not just stories.
My books are not just words on a page.
My books are not just something to read.
These books I’m writing, I’m baring my soul to the world of what is inside my mind.
I’m creating something different that I know people will enjoy.
These books are books I would want to read.
These books are my children and I’ve neglected them for far too long.

Book 1 – Soul’s Little Lie (DONE)
Book 2 – Soul’s Little Lie: Whispers in the Hall – (Work in Progress)
Book 3 – Soul’s Little Lie: Echos of the Lost – (Work In Progress)
Book 4 – Soul’s Little Lie: Behind Cloaked Mirrors – Mythia Chronicles – (Work in Progress)

I’m writing something very special. I’m writing something I love into a myth. And I can’t write when I’m detracted by something that demands false attention.

My books are my children.
Babies I give birth to from my mind and soul.
The only babies I’ll ever have.

Thunderclap Support Needed

My book is full of spiritual aspects. A diving into the soul of a broken heart and how her spirit guide brings her home, but at a cost and danger along the way. A blur of life and the other side and a redemption for all involved. This is the first book of 4 to come. I’m currently working on book 2 and hope to get it published later this year.
This book series is something extra special. I’ve written in to honor a certain boy band that is still going strong today. I’ve written New Kids On The Block into a myth. No, not a fanfiction. This is completely original with hints of the band in the story. Basiclly I took pieces of NKOTB of their personalities, some situations – that’s the Reality.
Then I wove it into something original – that’s the Fiction.
Next, by the time book 4 is done I would have created the Myth part of it.
It’s something different and it’s my baby. It’s the only thing I think of first thing in the morning and the last thing at night.
 
I only have 10 out of 100 supporters for this campaign. I need your help. Please don’t just ‘share’ the link, click the buttons from the page of your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr accounts. Yes, it will ask you to access your friends’ list, but that is only to send out the main message once I’ve reached 100 supporters.
From their FAQ – What if I don’t reach my supporter goal?
If you don’t recruit enough supporters by your campaign’s end date and time, your messages will not blast out. Be sure to actively promote your campaign to build support! …….if I don’t get 100 supporters my message does not go out.
 
This book series means more to me than anyone realizes. There is more than just a novel, I want my books to be bigger than anything I dream of. I dream, breath, eat, sleep, cry, bleed and scream and talk about nothing but Soul’s Little Lie Saga books and artwork to go with it and the possible movie script. It’s all I do day in and day out. I need this message to go out. It helps find more readers and get the word out by mouth how wonderful this book is. As a writer I need your support and it is no charge to you to pass the word around. Please.
There is much more to these books and I want them all to be shared. So, please click the links on the site and share with your friends, but don’t forget to click the support itself!
Thank you.

New Schedule for Book 2

As you can see from this photo, I’ve created a schedule for myself starting tomorrow.

0119161804-00

It is time for me to get back into the swing of my writing. After a hard 2 years living with my parents after my divorce, it was hard for me to fix up a set schedule for myself. Everything was hectic in my family’s house were I could not concentrate at all.

When I started writing the first draft to my first novel, Mythia back in high school from Sept 1, 1995 to May 9, 1996, I did a schedule for myself in my head. I pumped out nearly 200 pages in 9 months. During my marriage I went back into finishing up the first draft adding more to the piece which came to a total of 197,000 words, 23 chapters, 4 parts. From chapter 18-23 I think I wrote it in six months. It’s been so long.

Now, with Soul’s Little Lie book one done, that piece taking 9 months, taking weekends off and 2 to 4 weeks off (not all at once), I found myself doing a set schedule in my head. I had quite working at Michaels Crafts Store in Everett, WA from August 10, 2010 and found myself with plenty of quiet time to get the main draft done. I started in June 2010 and finished in February. Another 9 full months to finish a draft.

As for Soul’s Little Lie book 2 – this one has been a pain. I have all the chapters outlined and in order, but it has been hard for me to get back into the swing with the disruptive household back in TN and then the move back to Washington state. It was quite hectic for me.

What was also lagging me was I actually enjoyed having a set schedule. Keeping up on it, not missing a day at all from when I worked in retail. I can still have that type of discipline here at home with no worries.

Now, no excuses.

No, bull shit!

Time is NOW! Treat this book, with what is left, as a real work schedule as though I’m back in retail. Book 2 is almost done, say, 5 more chapters to go and book 3 is demanding to be born. Book 3 can’t happen if I don’t finish book 2.

Also, join me on Facebook at 3:45pm PST (5:45pmCST) A Platinum Event! Provocative Paranormal Online Multi Author Event! with other fellow authors of paranormal romance fantasy adventure writings. Giveaways, Q/A and more.

Hope to see you there!
