I dunno, some stuff

I'm at a point where I just don't care about trying to market.  What I've done so far hasn't had a huge impact.  It's been two and a half months, and I've gotten no word back from any of my review requests.  I've done the things new authors are supposed to do, and I'm not meeting people, not gaining readers.

Okay, so I've had a couple people tell me they like my book.  That's something.

But I want more.  I want to hear from more people.  I want to know what they liked, and what they didn't.

Considering other issues in my life, I just can't care enough about promoting right now.  It's fucking depressing.

So I plan on focusing on just my writing.  I've got things to work on that matter more to me.

Though, I did join Literotica in hope of cross-promoting.  Because posting stories is a great way to get more readers.

  1. Don't give up, Raven, sometimes these things take time. I'm sure you have more readers than you're aware of.

    For now I think you're doing the right thing, concentrating on your writing. You have an awesome talent!

  2. Well thank you. I'm sure you'll love the book...when it gets there. >.<

    It's just very rough to be a storyteller, and need the validation of the audience, and to get so minimal response.

    Though, I just got a guest writer spot on another site. Details on that tomorrow.
