I’ve been thinking about doing a mailing list. But I don’t know if it’s even worth it. I don’t really have a following. I’m hoping I will soon. But, it’s very difficult to get. Especially when people can’t even do a simple like or share of a post. Which is honestly sad. I don’t know why it’s so hard to help support somebody. Just takes a simple like and share. But I know I have to do most of this by myself. And whining is not going to change anything. Though it does discourage you because you wish people would care. Care more at least. So I’m not sure what to do. Some people tell me to do a mailing list but I don’t see the point. People hardly even care about my Facebook post. I wouldn’t mind doing one when I actually have a following.
I don’t know …. advertising and marketing is so expensive and hard to do. You have to constantly be at it and honestly it’s exhausting. Especially one no one ever cares. Except for maybe one or two like just my mom. I’m very grateful for those who have bought the book. Though I will admit I had to guilt-trip most of them in doing that. Which is pretty sad and shouldn’t have to be done. But I’m trying to focus more on just so if I ever tizing in not caring about no one paying attention. Most time I don’t care and I just keep advertising and marketing. I know I can do a better job at it. But sometimes you get down because it feels like all of your effort is for nothing. But I know it just feels that way. It’s going to be worth it.
Because someday I’ll have a marketing team to do it for me and they’ll be people saying oh remember me? And I’ll be like yeah you didn’t even like one of my post. Haha. But seriously though I’m just frustrated. I’m very grateful for those who do support me or try to get the word out for me. I’m happy for those who bought the book and who share it. I’m glad I have the small little baby fanbase I have. And I’m hoping it’ll grow quickly and fast.
My next novel is with a beta reader and I’m so excited. I love the book and the series. I can’t wait to have it in my hand and show everyone. Definitely going to be fun. I wish it hadn’t taken this long to get it out though. That’s a bit aggravating. Can you tell that I have absolutely no patience? But I’m grateful that it is almost here. I’ve been trying to work on other books because the more I get out the more people notice. I’m just hoping for better things and hoping that how quickly. I love to make a living on my writing. But I guess that’s every right to dream. New paragraph. Enough with the constant self-pitying because it does nothing. 🙂
