It has been several months since my ‘cozy romance novel’ was released on Amazon and it has been a wild ride. It isn’t easy being a working writer, also navigating a full time job in software sales…add in my music and art…well it has been nonstop.
Writing a romance novel and finding success on Kindle and with local bookstores has always been a dream of mine. Even before I could write I asked my Grandma Ruby to jot down my story ideas and create colorful illustrations.
Writing and publishing a book is HARD WORK. Even with creativity and courage – it can be difficult to figure out the publishing puzzle. I’m grateful to have found an excellent editor from Reedsy and have great feedback so far online from reviews…still it is a hard space to get into as an indie author.
I have tried Amazon ads, Facebook engagement, Twitter…At the end of the day I’m still figuring it out. To date – I’ve been blessed to have over 500 downloads and gotten a few royalty checks that paid for the FB ads.
Longterm I’d love to transition to spending my career focused on writing and my art business, but it is a long process.
I hope to have more Cupcake stories coming soon to whet my readers appetite and I’m regularly blogging on my Travel blog (adelelassiter.com)
I’d love for you to download a copy of Solitude Lake and post a review!
