I'm treading water. Everyday, I'm working hard yet I'm not really going anywhere. Not a day goes by when I'm not working on Book 2, not reading a friend or crit partner's manuscript, not promoting REMOVED or working on other things for it like a book trailer and researching blog tours. Just this week I was turned down by two blog tour hosts, and while I totally understand why they decided not to work with me, it still did nothing for my motivation. I realize that my book is in a niche. It's different, but honestly, it's not that different than ANY OTHER Young Adult dystopian on the market right now. Just look at the reviews. I'm getting 4 and 5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads.
Anyway, with the leaves falling from the trees and cool weather settling in, I feel like life is slowing down. I'm having trouble staying on top of things including the posts I have planned for this blog. I have a few half-written, and I need to just get in and finish them. Once those are out of the way, I'll be promoting Book 2. I have a cover reveal planned for October 22! It will have a blurb and everything, and I'll get it up on Goodreads right away. I just need to summon the energy to get it going.
If you find my motivation, please send it back to me. I miss it.
