Today’s the Day! (March to Bestseller – Nov. 7th )



My last post was grumpy.

I don’t like being negative and grumpy…

But I often find, when I am, some people understand exactly what I’m going through.

And I don’t want to shy away from critical, important issues just because they’re uncomfortable or negative.

And I’m a Capricorn (on the cusp with Sagittarius) so I swing widely between zealous, blinded-by-starlight enthusiasm and cautious, billy-goat criticism. That’s fine.

But nevermind all that…

I was basically complaining because people don’t listen to me even though I know my shit; and the problem was these huge Facebook groups where everybody has an opinion but nobody knows what they’re talking about.

That’s why some friends of mine set up a private Facebook event, with dozens of bestselling authors, so that you can ask them whatever questions you want and get live answers. It’s going to be sweet. But it’s ONLY today (March 7th), so go there now and see what’s happening.

There are also a bunch of cheap books.


And also…

In other news, my online book cover generator is so close to done…

It’s not totally finished but I’ve started making training videos, I think you’ll be impressed.
