Hi everyone. It’s certainly been a while since my last blog, and admittedly I’ve been a bit slow on keeping you up to date. The truth is, I’ve been trying to get the next book in The Landon Mysteries out for the end of the year, I’ve also been buying a house and trying to crack on with jobs so I can sell my business.
I’ve also been unable to post promotions in the larger facebook groups, because apparently spelling out certain words can result in the page being banned. I’ve never heard of this before and to be quite frank, if reading the word VIOLENT or MURDER offends you, then perhaps you should give up your reading hobby altogether. Especially if your preferred genre happens to be crime or psychological thrillers.
Geez, what is the world coming to?
When I first started writing, having authors as members of your reading club was something to be cherished. I, like any member want to feel included and be able to participate, but lately I feel these groups have become like a lot of groups in life where, unless you’re hugely popular or famous, then they/admin don’t really want to know. I’m certainly not going to grovel. I work hard on my writing, and it can be disheartening at times, when I do giveaways and hundreds of people take advantage of the opportunity to read one of my books for free, and I don’t even get a thank you. But I will persevere, because I do enjoy writing.
This isn’t meant to be a moan by all means, but it is the reality. It is an ungrateful and mannerless society we now find ourselves living in. I guess, that’s one reason why I prefer to write in the past.
