I set a date

I’m going to release Broken Crown on Amazon on September 5th.  Why?  Well, I don’t know about you, but I have to have a deadline.  If I keep telling myself I’ll do it when I’m done with everything, I’ll never get done.  I have a job, a husband, a life.  Things will always come up.  So, I set a deadline.  There are still a lot of things I have to do to get there.

I still have to actually convert my book to an eBook.  I’m not very computer literate, so it’s proving to be a challenge.  I also am still trying to get the hang of the whole social media aspect.  I have to promote myself, which is actually a pain.  I don’t want just any followers.  I want people who will be in love with the story.  And since it’s not out there yet, I have to guess at who that would be.

I also still need to get my author page looking like an author page.  One that  looks legit.

All in all though, I think it will go fine.  I could probably just upload it, hit publish, and see what happens.  I mean, I’m sure others have done just fine with that.  But I really want this to work.  I really want this to lead to an actual career as an author.  So, i’m going to give it every fighting chance I can.

And I Cried

I told you last week that I was back, and I really meant it.  I had posts lined up, exciting things to tell you, and it was going to be awesome.

And then my dog died.

I cried for three days.  We had her for nine years and she was sweet, and loving, and our girl.  But, she was sick.  Very sick.  She wasn’t going to get better and she was in pain.  I couldn’t do it anymore.  So, we went to the same vet she’s always gone to and they helped us.  She’s buried in the backyard, under a tree.  I still think I have to let her out, give her a treat, and all the other things we’ve done the last nine years.

The silver lining in the whole thing was a few days later when I checked the mail.  The vet sent us a condolence card telling us that she was sorry.  

That’s why we go to them.  Not just because they are the best, but because they actually care, about our pets and us.

Tomorrow I will go back to regular posting, telling you about self publishing, wattpad, and the crazy songs I’m listening to right now as I write.  Until then,
