Was working on the book and then got VERY discouraged with the whole thing and decided I needed to get a day job and forget being an author. So I signed up to take a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) class and try to find a job. Took the class, passed it and now waiting till March 28th to take the test to be certified. Still have lots of practicing and studying to do to make sure I pass.
In the meantime with the book I found out it needed a line-by-line edit – so hired a professional to do that. Was even more discouraging finding out how much work it needed. Sad. Just sad. BUT – pushed through and still pushing. The book is done now – and truthfully at this point I can’t say if it is good or not. Just not objective about it at all.
Yesterday I put it up on Amazon as a Kindle book. I am waiting for the final proof of the print version and then will put it up as a paperback. Right now the Kindle version is 99 cents but starting Monday for one week it will be free. So anyone willing to give it a look see – would appreciate it. Would totally, totally appreciate anyone who would write a few sentences (or more) review of the book. Apparently the reviews are the real judge of the book – and a definite deciding factor whether people give a new author a try.
I am sending out the free PDF version of the book by email for anyone who offered to review it previously.
For my part it will be good just to find out what others think of the book. I know you are all my friends so you are going to be a bit prejudiced but really – I need to know how to improve my writing and get better. So your observations will be very helpful. 🙂
On the other hand – truthfully . . . do I really want to know the truth?
Probably not. It did sound good to write it that way though. Like I can really handle people hating the book? Yeah, right.
Today’s forecast is rain. I decided it was time to turn on my happy light and get some happy rays. I also found out that eating popcorn increases one’s serotonin level. Made some last night. Now just need some dark chocolate and I should make it through the day.
