Public Service Announcement

Being a self-published author is not easy. I don't pretend to know everything and I don't pretend to be super successful. But what I can do is offer can a few simple and easy tips that made my life easier and may work for you if you'd also like to become a self-published author.

1) RESPECT your editor

2) RESPECT your formatter

3) RESPECT your cover artist

4) RESPECT anyone who does anything for you. (Proofreaders, fellow authors, ARC readers, your street team, your newsletter subscribers, bloggers, PAs, VAs, etc.)

5) RESPECT your readers.

6) REMEMBER, readers don't owe you anything. They're giving up their free time to read and review your book. The reader/writer relationship is give and take. You give your readers a little love, they'll give you a little love in return. Not everyone, but the good ones will stick around. And while I understand that there will always be freebie hunters - those who want to take a free book and run - if you keep working hard enough to find those loyal readers, they will find you... especially if you follow rules 1-5 and build good ju-ju.

Success won't happen overnight. And I can promise you that it hasn't worked that way for me. But I feel good about the author I'm becoming and I'm proud to say that I know plenty of my readers by more than their name and face and last review on Amazon.

I feel good about the road I'm taking. And I'm excited to see where the next few months will take me.

Still not excited? Check out the official summary!

Eleven. A name. A title. A sentence passed. If you aren’t a Beauty, you’re less than a person. You’re a commodity known as a Potential… and you only have so many chances to qualify as a human being.

In her seventeen years, Eleven has seen the best and worst in humanity. She’s been passed around and abused by the bad. She’s hoped and dreamed for the good. And she’s despaired for the hand she’s been dealt. Now she’s been purchased by a wealthy man who has the ability to improve her life and help her become a Beauty – if she can put up with his erratic and controlling personality for long enough, that is. Complicating things is the appearance of a stunningly beautiful young man with amethyst eyes who treats Eleven to the rarest form of attention for a Potential: kindness.

Does Eleven trust her powerful owner to help her escape this life of servitude and enslavement, or does she gamble everything on the enigmatic young man who seems to offer her more than she could ever imagine possible?

Hehe, hopefully I got you now! Be sure to pre order your copy today and don't hesitate to spread the word! Please and thank you!

What does it mean to be human?

Lily Evans is about to find out. On what should have been a day of great happiness she is diagnosed with a rare and unbelievable disease: she is shrinking, possibly without limit.

As her life starts to spin out of control and the world starts to grow around her at an uncontrollable rate she is forced to confront her greatest fear - losing the man whom she loved from the moment she saw him.

Release Day is Tomorrow

So... This is Me. releases tomorrow and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Though I'm not exactly sure what I'm so nervous about sometimes. I know that I'm still building a brand here, so I'm not expecting hundreds of sales, you know?

I guess... what I'm looking for is growth. I want to know that I'm always moving forward and that each time I publish a new book, I'll sell a little bit more than the last one, and hopefully get a few more new subscribers to my newsletter. That's really all I want, and even though I'm pretty sure that this book will do better than the last, there's always that feeling that it won't be enough, you know?

I put my heart and soul into my work and all I want is for some people to buy it... and maybe like it. Hehe, maybe even love it and want to try something else by me. That's really all I'm asking for. LOL... such a little thing, right?

But yeah, I just wanted to say that.
Tomorrow is release day... and I'll admit it... I'm nervous.
