Bringing Rayven Godchild back from her chill spot in the wings was great. Under this pen name, I released some steamy titles, mainly the Confessions and Secret Lilies. Under my own name, I participated in the Twisted Earths anthology as well as the first-in-series boxed set, Fantasy Uprising. I also released Beacon, the first book in the Ripped Ties series.
2014 was awesome in many ways. I even jumped on my 2015 goals and was filled with so much excitement until I filed my taxes. There are some realities that are hard to bear. In my reality, I have a feeling there would those who would advise me to stop writing and publishing. Sadly, my sales are trending in such a way that revenue gained won't help me meet the goals I was so hopeful for accomplishing for 2015.
I pondered a Kickstarter, but I could not, in good conscience, do one when I have an obviously difficult time bringing readers to my books or doing the things to increase awareness and intrigue in my stories.
So, I've started looking for a second job, something part-time that will allow me a few hours through the week to do some reading, writing and critiquing.
I had some bold aspirations for this year. My hope is that I don't have to toss my 2015 goals altogether, but rather, adjust them out for a longer term to still see them come to fruition... just not all of them this year.
This means I may be a bit sporadic with my blog posts. Not because I don't like blogging, but rather becasue a part-time job will add a bit of a time-crunch to things lol!
I will write. I will publish. You'll still see me... just less of me.
For those of you who've been with me since I started this publishness journey, I truly thank you. For those who've just discovered me, I thank you as well and hope you can all bear with me as go through a few changes to improve both my life and writng-life situations.
Because I don't want this to be felt, seen or interpreted as a bad thing, please have a slice of deliciousness :-)
