Rethinking My Approach...

Well, I can officially say that I suck balls at marketing. I feel like I'm stuck and no one even knows I'm here. This is a bad position to be in for a writer. I feel like I've been going in the wrong direction.
I am thinking about taking a new approach to how I reach out to readers because right now I am getting nowhere with my sad little blog entries. I want to be able to be more interactive with people and get feedback for my writing. I want to know that my audience actually cares about what I am rambling about!

I was thinking of creating a monthly newsletter where I can be more candid, offer "bonus content", giveaways, give the inside scoop, and of course tell my secrets too!
You will have the opportunity to give feedback and ask questions. I would love your input! If you have read any of my books I would love the chance to know what you think. I am used to the good and bad. I'm not scared!
Maybe a few off topic posting favorite recipes :)
I'm still currently brainstorming ideas but at least this will seem more personal than posting on my blog because I will know that someone is listening.

Would you be willing to sign up via email and join me for this little endeavor? I would love to know what you think?

I am being completely neglectful of my blog lately BUT I am making amazing progress on book #2 of my Distortion Series. For anyone who likes romantic suspense I am hoping to impress you!!
If you want to know how my writing is coming along I update my progress regularly. You just need to click on the Work-In-Progress (Distortion Series Book #2) Picture on the right side bar to see how things are coming along.
When I write I put a lot of thought and consideration into my first draft so when I'm done it only needs a quick read-through before I send it off. So it may seem that progress is slow at times but not to worry I'm very excited about how it is developing!

When I was tucking my youngest son in bed last night he asked me why I write.
I responded by asking him what he liked to do that gave him a wonderful sense of happiness.
He said "Watching Pokemon." 
I told him writing was my "Pokemon"
He gave me a big smile and said "Oh wow."

I Am Very Excited To Announce...

Degrees Of Distortion, book one in my Distortion Series has officially been accepted for publication!!
I am very excited to bring this series to life!
Soon my editor will shine this manuscript up for me but until then, here is a little (unedited) teaser for you...
"Lexie stepped down the front steps that groaned loudly in protest, alerting the owner of the sleek black sports car next door. His attention drew to her as he swung a black duffle bag over his shoulder. She froze like a deer in the headlights. He was tall and shaped like a man that did nothing but physical activity. His intense eyes were staring back at her and her heart throbbed so loudly she could feel it in her fingertips.
He looked like how she pictured it would be like to come across a lion in the wild. He was captivatingly beautiful and terrifying at the same time. He gave her a friendly wave and unlike her seemed completely at ease.
Her flee response screamed at her because she knew that if she tried to engage she wouldn’t be able to form a coherent thought. She was too drained from the night before to muster up a proper conversation. She gave a small pathetic wave in response and quickly walked up the driveway, toward the main dirt road. She could feel the heat of his eyes on her back and she forced herself not to look back no matter how much she wanted to."

Have you been wondering what I'm up to?
I've been hanging out with one of my best friends ;)
...always there for me no matter what time of day. We have a great relationship! haha (One of my very favorite inventions!)

I'm writing whenever I can find the time. I need to keep up with the story formulating in my head. I've been avoiding distractions...I used to start my day checking my social media. I would find that hours pass and I haven't accomplished any writing because I get sucked into marketing attempts. A necessary evil BUT my main priority is writing my new series.

I think its the best plan in the long run.I still need to work on my wow factor to win over readers. My "Distortion Series" is me putting my best foot forward. Hopefully my determination is leading me down the right path.
