I’ve a confession to make. I’ve been in a writing slump. Some may say such a thing doesn’t exist. That I’m probably experiencing writer’s block, but the thing is, I can write. I just haven’t felt the recent motivation to do so. Mind you, I’ve been working on a few things, here and there, but I’m not quite sure as to why I’ve been feeling this way, in all honesty.
I know a lot of you are waiting for the release of Well-Kept Secrets, book four in The Child of Calamity series. The book is done and ready to go. I just haven’t begun preparing for its release again. Things didn’t work out for the book’s February 28, 2016 release, and I’ve been sitting on it ever since its editing was completed.
I want very much to get all of these books I’ve been working on released. To offer my readers more of what they want. The lack of responses when a book releases has made me rethink everything, however.
I can’t help but wonder as to why things have been so slow lately. Am I doing something wrong with my writing? Is there something I need to fix to draw people’s further interest in what I do? I’d love to know, so that I can work on making things better for us all.
Writing is my passion. I’ll never stop doing it, but I also want to give my readers something they’ll enjoy. Something all of us will always be proud of.
I sometimes wonder if people wait for me to give away these books. It’s easier when we don’t have to spend money on something. I realize I did a lot of that at the beginning of this journey, and I wonder if I’ve made people expect that I’ll keep giving away my books for free.
Sadly, I have to make a living, too. Between trying to make ends meet, and being sick a lot lately (Flu’s and colds knock a person down entirely, by the way.), I haven’t been on any of my social platforms much. I’ve also been concentrating on my publishing company (Yes, I do have one.), since my books haven’t been selling much these days.
I love my readers and fan base very much, and I want to write for you all. To give you all more food for thought whenever you read my work. I know I’ll get back to writing more soon. To release stories that will draw you in from the get-go.
I apologize for the delay. I just . . . this slump I’ve been in has made me re-evaluate everything I do. I want this to work. To make something more of my writing. To branch it out further.
I plan to release Well-Kept Secrets and the rest of these books I’ve been working on, here and there, soon enough. It’s just going to take a little time, so I ask that you all be patient with me. I want things to be just right, you know?
I thank you all for your patience and support. It means a lot to me. I promise good things will be coming soon, and I’ll definitely make it worth your while.
Thanks for hanging in here!
