I know things ebb and flow, come and go, etc. but in the last week or so my numbers have been really low when it comes to people reading this blog. At least, that’s what WordPress is telling me when I go to my stats. I could lie and say I don’t look that often but I look every day. It’s addictive.
I am preparing to release my third novel so this is no time to be losing people. Part of the problem could be that I’ve been avoiding Twitter. I just don’t find it as interesting as I used to. In the beginning, I could keep up with everyone and there seemed to be more of a connection. Now I don’t recognize most of the names, and it’s cluttered with quotes and people trying to sell me things. Half of the time when you comment on something you don’t get a reply until hours later because their tweet was automated. I keep telling myself to spend more time there but myself refuses.
As long as I’m complaining, I don’t understand why no one is buying my first book, “Searching for My Wand”. It is a very entertaining book with great reviews. “On a Hot August Afternoon” has sold much better, and sure, I’ve promoted it more but show some love for the first born. At the risk of being a shameless promoter, here’s the link for both books.
If you have any suggestions on how to build my audience, or things you’d like me to blog about, be sure to let me know.
