Well, I’m slowly getting back into writing my novel – one or two paragraphs at a time. Not exactly astounding progress but better than the standstill I’d reached. Hopefully it will improve. A recent visit to my doctor has resulted in a change in dosage of one of the medications I’m on. It means much lower pain levels – bliss! Unfortunately, they do tend to knock me out, too, so less time for writing. Over all, though, I’m feeling more inclined to write. I think that comes out as a gain.
I’ve been amazed at the success of my last ebook, Thief, and it’s really good news as I had other stories featuring some of the same characters/places in mind. In fact, I’ve almost completed a kind of prequel story. More news on that will follow when I publish the ebook. All I’ll say about it for now is that I hope that it pleases those readers who enjoyed Thief.
I’m staggered by the increase in the number of kind folk who have shown an interest in what I’m getting up to. The numbers of Twitter “followers” and Facebook page “likers” have increased enormously since the beginning of this year. As to this blog, the number of visitors from launch in February to 31st December 2012 was 651. At the last count, since 1st January 2013, the number of visitors was at 645! That’s a huge increase! Visitors have come from all over the world. I thank you all for your kind attention. I am trying very hard to interact more with many of you, through Twitter, Facebook and blog follows. Naturally, like many of you, there are often times when I become engrossed in writing, or Life gets rather complicated, and I neglect my online activities. I’m sure you all understand. If I seem less than attentive, you have my apologies.
If there is anything lacking in the progress of the last two months, it’s a dearth of reviews and comments. Obviously, I would love to receive reviews of my ebooks, through either Smashwords or Goodreads. Such things make a big difference not only to how successful a book is, but also to the motivation to continue writing. As to comments, I would be very pleased to hear from readers of this blog, on any post made. Such interaction is heartening, to say the least.
Be well and safe, all.
