Hello Indie Authors!
This is Episode 16, and it's 6/19//2019 as I record this.
Today we're doing Book Launch, Part Two.
But first Author Life segment:
- Life has been getting in the way and I haven't been working
this week on my manuscript. Trying not to beat myself up about it.
I told my husband I needed a week off to get ready for the
vacation...and remembered I often needed a week off AFTER a
vacation to get caught back up. So, note to self--vacations take a
huge chunk out of writing and revising time. And brain space.
- I'll be heading to Minnesota and Wisconsin this weekend, seeing
both family and friends. Most of the friends I've seen within the
year, but my family--some of them--I haven't seen in ten years or
even, in the case of my youngest niece, haven't met at all. So I'm
hoping to reconnect with that part of my family.
- This episode will conclude Season One of The Indie Author
Mentor. The podcast will resume mid-July (the 17th) for
Season Two. I'll be planning out the next season during this short
hiatus, so if you have any requests for topics or any questions,
please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Had my monthly review with an author friend of mine. I like
these because they always get me back on track and
- I'M READING: In fiction, White is for Witching. Don't know if I
like it yet. Non-fiction: YNAB. Nearing the end of them, so I'm
thinking about my next reads, and because I'm going on vacation,
I'll be bringing favorite authors and lighter reading. That means
probably Sarah Addison Allen and Louise Penny, and the like.
- No NEW PATRONS this week, but I hope you'll consider becoming a
patron and helping me reach my FIRST Patreon goal. To earn $125 in
monthly income from Patreon. When that happens...extra bonus
Q&A episode for Patrons only.
- Think of it as an inexpensive mini coaching session
booksandtravel podcast, tex thompson's newsletter is either
hilarious or inspiring, most times both. Go to thetexfiles.com to read about her and
sign up for her newsletter. The blog is funny, too.
