Writing as a job

Let me start out by saying, yuck. I hate this part of the process. Inevitably, every time I finish up a book, I have to retool my marketing of the Dairyland Murders Series. This means this is (at least) the sixth time I’ve had to go back in, look at where I’m selling and where I’m not, and try to figure out how in the hell to sell more.

I repeat, yuck. I love the writing. That’s the fun part. Honestly, that’s the easy part, because I am the god of my story. I have the power. I determine everything, settings, characters, plot twists, crime scenes, sex scenes. It’s all mine.

That being said, I can’t make you buy my books. I can’t make you notice me in the sea of all the information that constantly bludgeons you (pun totally intended) every waking moment. But I know I have to try.

So, as with every new book release, there will be changes. I’m finally getting around to setting up my author page on GoodReads. I’m probably going to have an email list set up soon on this blog. I may even change the look of this blog. It’s been a while. I’m pretty sure my website header is not smart-phone friendly. Who knows? With any luck I might even get interview in a podcast. That might be kind of cool.

Stay posted, those of you who might actually give a crap. I’m comin’ for ya.
