Note to Self: Publish in The Fall!

I kinda sorta get why so many books are published in the fall. Well, I'm sure marketing whizs have better reasons beside the October book shows, but from an Indie Publishing viewpoint, it's all about the summer slump!

It's not that I don't WANT to work on my launch of FRAMED, and certainly not that I don't want to hang out with the girls of THE SHELL KEEPER while rewriting the sequel. It's more that life seems to fill up with activity and obligation in the summer. More family hanging out, more BBQ's to make potato salad for, more day trips to the mountains. (Okay, so I'm planning more day-trips to the mountains!) How's a girl supposed to find the time to write!

Yes, yes, my writer's conscience...and fellow writers are telling me it's all about the placement of my posterior in front of my laptop followed by the tap-tap-tap of my fingers on the keyboard. And it's true, it's really that simple!

So...summer threw me a little there at the beginning, but I'm beginning to get the hang of its ways and next week is gonna be a fresh start!

Note to Self: review this post when the holiday season arrives!

  1. Enjoy your summer, I am sure you will settle into a pattern and find time to write.

  2. I'm trying hard to do so, LindyLouMac! You watch out for tornadoes! :)
