It's a new year and as with every year, I am motivated and pumped. This year WILL be different. It's my second as an indie author and I need to make some decisions. I have a few goals and I and going to see them through. First, Velvet Dreams, the first book in the Red Velvet Trilogy will be out in the next couple of months. It should have been out over a year ago and for that I am still kicking myself in the ASS!!!
A Vampire's Touch, the prequel, had good success and became a bestseller on Amazon. That should have been my big sign but instead, I wanted to try every option, got pulled in other directions and decided to start another series in the erotica genre. 50 shades was hot and I thought that was the way to go. BIG MISTAKE.
I needed to make a sound business decision based on numbers and sales, I didn't. I truly believe if VD had been released close after my bestseller, it may just have flown higher on the ranks. It sure had the potential based on my previous numbers.
I have learned my lesson and I hope that readers from A Vampire's Touch will hold on for just a few more weeks. It's been over a year and you will probably need to re-read AVT to remember all the cool stuff and what is yet to come.
This trilogy is different in that there is a unique element to these vampires. The politics are soaring and so is the lust factor. I plan to release A Vampire's Touch in print and have signed copies along with bookmarks as giveaways in a future event. This is huge for me. Holding a printed copy of my book? Holy shit
I hope you will stick with me on this crazy ride.
It's hard to believe 2013 is almost gone. Shy of two years ago, I began the publishing journey. I still can't believe I actually did it. This is a work in progress and I have yet to learn all there is. I'm still adjusting to seeing my books live on Amazon! To hear the feedback from readers is the single most satisfying thing. I'm grateful to all who have followed and stayed with me.
May your holidays be filled with love, good health and prosperity.
