Hi guys, welcome back to the Coffee & Dark Reads reboot
I lost focus but the secret to success is picking yourself up again and not quitting
This week I briefly talk about how a sense of community can help when writer’s block strikes.
This week I discuss the way the writers mind works, why there is no simple answer to the question why do you write?
This week I read my first real published work, this was a short story in the charity anthology Lupus Animus and titled Acceptance. if you want to read the book for yourself the link is mybook.to/LupusAnimus
I am home from my last signing of this year, so let’s talk authors, readers, books and touching tables!
In this first podcast I introduce myself and tell you a little about the life of an Indie Author in the run-up to a book signing event, in weeks to come I will share readings from my books and tell you about the books I am reading and loving , plus I will have interviews with other Indie authors.
This week has been tough, Monday was the first anniversary of my grandma’s passing and in my determination not to get to broken up over it I have managed to stick my head so firmly in the sand that when I pulled it out I started panicking.
Saturday is Voices book launch, I am still tweaking, I am not sure if I am now tweaking for the sake of tweaking or if this is my self destructive side showing it’s head. Normally I function best under pressure and so I should be flying right now but of course I am doubting my own abilities and scared stiff but one way or another at least the Kindle version of Voices will be on sale over the weekend, I have delayed, rewritten, deleted and procrastinated so many times over this book, partly because it does mean so much to me and partly because of the dedication and the special little man who inspired it. There will not be a vlog on Friday instead on Sunday you will get a special one with the launch included.
I will be sending out a newsletter on Friday and there is still chance to pop over to my website and sign up to the newsletter to be entered in the draw for a copy of the book, everyone who opens the email gets their name in that hat.
There will also be a swag bag give-away for the actual event and another for responding on the Facebook page here
Quick vlog for you, then you can catch up on my resolutions for 2016 by clicking on the image below…
