Is There Life After Marketing?

Available in eBook or Paperback on Amazon

Until Darkness Comes, my debut novel, released last week, and I’m quickly discovering that writing the book was the easy part. Wow…so much to do in so little time. Blog touring and marketing can seem like a full-time job in itself. I remember a time when I had countless hours to write, and I now find the thing I love, my passion, is taking a back seat to other demands. I guess like with all things, it boils down to balance, and with time comes efficiency.
I find it interesting when I talk to other authors, they all seem to have their “favorite part.” For some it’s the writing, some it’s the editing, and others, it’s the marketing. I’d love to hear from you and find out what do you love most about being an author? J
I have been blessed by the support of my editor, publishing company and fellow authors, who have all taken the time to invest in me and support the launch of Until Darkness Comes. Thank you, everyone, for your support!
Have a great week!

What a BEAUTIFUL cover, Melynda, and CONGRATS! For me, there is a serious satisfaction in a book being written, edited, rewritten, edited some more, cover designed, proofs checked and double checked, up on Amazon, links working and then being able to market it. I won't call marketing my favorite part -- I think the part where I get a new idea at 4 a.m. and can't wait to start writing is my favorite, favorite -- but definitely I enjoy connecting wiht readers and bloggers and reviewers and learning the promotional side of the book business. A year or two in and I still have so much to learn, but I'm grateful for being in the game!!! Welcome and congrats on your success!!

The Marketing is the WORST part for me. I never feel particularly interesting in blog posts.
