She wins all the books I publish this year!!
I’m absolutely and utterly amazed by just how far I’ve come in a simple year. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve let myself really feel like I’ve made a dent, or acknowledge the little things that I’ve active over the year. I want to say that it was because I was afraid of seeing how far I’ve come, to be disappointed, but it probably has more to do with my not caring in a way most newbies seem to this early in the game.
I don’t, in any terms, mean that I think I have a huge following, or one at all, but just having yous here, looking, entering…
Like I said amazed, this year, a year where I wasn’t all that pushy when it came to what I published, because, let’s face it, my promotional skill could use finer tuning. but I decided at the beginning on last year that I was going to take my time, and that’s what I’m doing, so if no one reads my books, well, they will in a couple of years, when I’ve actually stepped out and are seen.
The thing is, I am being seen.
This time last year I wouldn’t have even had 10 people click a few links on just a simple rafflecopter, let alone one that’s only a comment, and to have 10 people no, comment, just for me… I honestly, I’ve not got the words for it. I’m speechless with tears springing into my eyes. I kid you not, the fact that people are reading my blogs, are reading my books, even if it’s not a sky rocket… well to be honest I couldn’t probably live like this for – well, at least the next ten years. Once my kids get into adult territory my government, money will be stripped and it’ll have to work. Only I don’t want to look outside the house to work, I want this to seamlessly evolve from a hobby to a job.
It’s my goal. A ten-year one at that.
I want to thank you all again for the comments, I didn’t reply to them individually, because I, well, forgot, sorry, I’m actually really shit at remembering, though I think it has more to do with the fact that as a commenter I generally don’t go back and see the replies. I need to work on it. Maybe it’ll be my social goal of the year.
