Without new books to promote, what's the point???
Which means, I've got to focus on writing The Wolf and the SEAL. It's the 8th book in the series, and what with the blog tour, it's been difficult for me to do much else but keep up with that this month after work and keeping up with student lessons.
But it's interesting to see that when I think everyone who might be interested in the series already knows about it, to see how many have never heard of it and are quite excited about getting started. :) Which shouldn't be a surprise to me since I'm the same way with even authors who are really big time, and I've never read them. Then I'm prowling the stores, hungrily looking for new books to devour--because even though I LOVE writing my own stories, I LOVE reading others' too!--and so I'm always finding authors whose stories are new to me. And having to get everything they've written.
It's really rewarding to get notes from fans who have devoured your own books and their only regret is that they read them too fast and have to wait another 3 1/2 months for the next one to come out. :) And they want to know what else you're working on in the meantime!
I wish I could write faster! Sell faster! :) And have them come out once a month. :) But ohmigosh, the blog tours would eat me alive. Okay, so that's a very good reason not to have them come out that frequently. Besides the fact it takes me longer than a week to write and edit a novel length book. LOL
I'm at Fumbling with Fiction today. Actually I received a Google alert or wouldn't have known I was there at all...so please drop by and comment if you have a moment!
If you're looking for an easy way to track your Amazon sales for across the world, here's a neat little place that does this for you. When I had time, I would peek at sales in France, Germany, Japan, the UK, and Canada. But this is pretty neat because it does it for you all on one page. I was amazed to see the wolf and vampire titles doing so well in France. And that The Vampire...In My Dreams (vampire YA) is doing so well in the UK. And Heart of the Wolf has even sold in Japan! So, if you're obsessed about sales ranking, it's kind of a neat little site!
I just received another bear order--this one for a different Celtic clan bear. So besides writing all weekend, I'll be working on another Celtic bear! Hope you have a terrific Thursday! And keep thinking good thoughts! Off to ship a book for a fan, because Heart of the Wolf is in its 3rd Printing!!! And temporarily out of stock!
