Giving Birth!!!!

When all the little ends are tied up, cover finished, back of the book blurb done and the endorsement edited, that’s it, you hand your precious bundle over to the publisher, and sit back and wait, and more often than not, find something else to keep your fizzy, busy mind occupied. The pressing of the button, that sends your manuscript off, is the final act, the conception, and now all you are doing is waiting to give birth, life to your written words, so they fly out off the pages and engrain deep into your readers minds. and take them into another world, your world, well that’s what all authors hope and pray for!!! is it not?.

And what then, may I ask, well, yes what do you do then, sit on your hands?????? well, think about it, books dont sell on their own, that’s when the work starts, you’ve worked hours and hours to produce this little beauty, which after all is part of you, yes you!!!!!!!!!!!!! and now you have got to sell it. Where do I start? was the very first question I asked, bewildered by not knowing what to do!!!! what did I do?? make loads and loads of mistakes, wasted very precious money, and at times felt like a complete fool, why?? I hear you ask, good question I reply, quite simply this!
I didnt trust myself, I bowed to others high up in the publishing business, listened like an amateaur, taking in all their information, telling me exactly how and why things should be done the publishing way, because that’s the way it should be done, so what did I do,…….. exactly what they said, and guess what!!! it didn’t really work.

But interestingly enough, although I was a debut author, a complete and utter novice, I learned from my mistakes, took note of everything and everyone around me pushing me into the wrong direction, and vowed sincerely, that when I give birth to my second book this time, there’s only one person pushing me on, telling me what to do, directing my thoughts and actions and selling my book with great gusto,and it will be someone with accumulated knowledge and wisdom, who’s that? I hear you ask, well you know who that very important person is????? its Me!!!!!!

Dear keiron from Taunton, so sorry for your loss, thank you for your lovely email, and it was lovely speaking to you on the phone, glad I could help, you know where I am if you need me again.

Until later!!!!

Blessings.
