This year has quite literally ripped past me with the speed of somethin’.
I think I had it in my head that by June 2015 I would surely have sold at least 100,000 copies of my book! I would be getting ready to retire and devote myself to writing on a full time basis and begin the process of publishing others and building a giant of a company built on free thought, passion and creative genius!
I don’t expect much, do I, considering that I released the book in February 2015.
I am, of course, being a bit of tool here.
Realizing that public speaking was going to be a part of this journey that I’ve chosen and having done it a couple of times and in that process became a pool of human slush while I trembled and quaked before the masses (I’m exaggerating, of course), I joined Toastmasters.
I am trying to discover the key to distribution in book stores. I have expanded distribution online and a small book store in New Westminster is carry a few copies of my book.
Now I contacted Chapters who referred me to iUniverse and everyday for close to two months Jessica Abbney has left me a message. I will call her back, but what this iUniverse thing is appears to like an Authorhouse type thing where you pay them to publish your book. I’ve published it. Now I just want to distribute it.
My hot water is back on, though it’s still rather tepid.
I am finishing up physio and beginning active rehab to assist in recovering from the accident. At this very moment, I’m exhausted.
I’m getting out and going for walks and end up being in absolute agony as the hips have a tendency to lock up on me these days. Oye!
Also I’ve been practicing my writing of prose and poetry.
Have I mentioned I’m a little tired?
Keeping a clear head is paramount these days.
In the meantime I’m ordering and selling books on my own and I’ve been humbled by the gracious comments that the book has garnered and I’d like to share this with you from the Amazon site.
