I released my newest contemporary romance and that was just as exciting as the day I released Return of the Rose over a year ago. I am working on the third book in the Lizzy Gardner series and loving it. I am also half way through a third contemporary romance, but that book will have to wait its turn.

The BEST part of my indie author journey has been connecting with readers. What an amazing high that is!

Thanks to all who have taken the time to read one of my books, write a review, comment on my blog, offer congrats, or email me to tell me I have a new fan.

No matter what YOUR dreams are, don't let anyone tell you that you can't succeed. If you are self-publishing a book and you are not seeing the sales that you were hoping for, try not to dwell on low sales. Keep writing, keep writing, keep writing. And you MUST believe in yourself. As writers, there are too many factors that we have no control over as to whether our books will sell well, or not. Worrying about the ups and downs will only make you crazy. Just keep writing.

Don't be afraid to try new things. Stay positive.

YOU CAN DO IT!

As always, I love the fact that you're so honest with your numbers. I appreciate that, and I'm sure many others do, too. Best of luck with your new book!

Thanks so much, Elisa.

I noticed that your 'favorite books' widget listed the Ekhart Tolle book 'A New Earth'. I liked that one a lot as well.

Theresa Ragan said...

Hi Jeff, I LOVE that book! I always have it nearby to read a few great quotes or wonderful passages.

Just read your "Having a Baby". Really enjoyed the story. Very well written thanks. Looking forward to other books about all the brothers and sisters.

Hi Gail! Thanks for the nice words about Having My Baby!! I can't wait to write more books about the Baylor family.
