Slow and Steady… Slow and Steady

I did a bit of networking over the weekend. It felt good talking about my novel to people. What surprised me was how interesting that was to someone. During a car ride, he proclaimed to me how ballsy it was that I’ve put myself out into the world. It doesn’t feel that way to me. Well… it does but not nearly as emphatically as he felt. I know it’s hard on the nerves (every day, I know…) to essentially say to people “Listen to me!” and wait for them to reply, but it’s part of the gig. Especially when you’re self-promoting. But it’s not something I think about often. I’m never afraid of sending my daily e-mails to reviewers. It’s more “…this again?” It’s like having a sink full of dirty dishes. It’s there and if you don’t take care of it, you’re in trouble, but it’s full of so many damn dishes. But it’s part of the gig. I’m not sure what all that had to do with courage. Oh wait, it makes sense. I just feel that people should do more instead of say that they will or think about it. But that’d mean I’d have to share success space. Hmm…

New Nine Inch Nails this week: “Hesitation Marks”. And the home release of Rob Zombie’s latest film, “Lords of Salem”, comes out also. Longevity is an interesting thing.

Give my novel, “Lie”, a try. It’s a surreal dramedy about four women who go on a getaway to help one of their own through a tough time. The first four chapters are available to read for free, courtesy of Goodreads, and the rest of the novel is only $1.99 wherever eBooks are sold. Thanks.
