I haven't posted here in so long, dear blogledites, and yes, I've had a lot going on in my life, but also I've felt sort of defeated of late. For those of you who've never done it, let me tell you: the self-publishing world can chew you up and spit you out if you're not prepared for it.

It was never my goal to make a fortune with this book. Let's face it: these days you only make a fortune if you write crap, a la The Da Vinci Code or Fifty Shades. My goal with my book was just to have people read it and enjoy it. I've been frustrated by how few people seem to be purchasing it not because I wanted to make $$$, but because that means so few people are reading it!

I've decided to take a philosophical view on the issue from now on. I write for me, and the rest is just details. People buy it or they don't; they read it or they don't. At least I know I've put out a high-quality product that I enjoy.

In other news, I got a new 5-star review! That helps.  :)  It came with this handy-dandy sticker...

You can find it HERE. I also received two new reviews from the lovely ladies at Famous Five Plus. You can find those HERE.

That's about all from me today. I'll try to be less of a slacker from now on!

So much happening!

Whew, blogledites, it's been an insanely busy week! My "day job" has been hectic as hell. I work retail, and here in NC it's almost tax free weekend. It's gonna be...interesting.

In BOOK news, it's been fantastic! Got 2 great new reviews this week, one from Sue Fortin at Famous Five Plus, which you can find HERE, and another from The Bookshelf HERE.

You can find current giveaways running HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Holy givin' it away, Batman, that's a lot of free copies!

Also, I discovered why I hadn't been accepted into iBooks yet. My author's bio contains a link to this here bloggity blog, and as you can see to the left, the blog has links to Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, and Kobo. Apple didn't like that, so I had to resubmit it with the blog link removed. Le sigh. Hopefully by mid-August!

I'll be going on another virtual tour starting August 13, and this one will include 15 stops. Hopefully not a lot of guest blogs, because I've discovered I'm not very good at thinking up topics.  :)

That's all from here, dear blogledites. Hope you're all having lovely summers!

New Review(s) and Interview/Giveaway!

Some exciting things to share today, dear blogledites!

First, a new review from TeAmNeRd ReViEwS, 4 of 5 stars!

Secondly, you can see an interview and a giveaway on Nikki's blog, Close Encounters with the Night Kind. You can find Nikki's fantastic review here! If any of you found your way here from there, then hi! *waves*

Also, in completely un-book-related news, I've become obsessed with nail polish lately. I think the way they're painted now is my favorite: Caffeine Fix polish (it's so shiny!) under Traffic Stopper Copper glitter. I'm like a magpie, fascinated by my shiny, glittery nails.
