Today, on the latest episode of “A Self-Published Author’s Diary” podcast, I am answering two questions I’ve received from a reader named Amanda (Thanks, Amanda :-)):

  • Did I always know I would write for readers?
  • And where does that confidence come from?

I go back into my junior high writing of poems and my high school writing of romance and my later years of fanfiction writing to answer the first question. And when it comes to the second question and the confidence aspect, I try to analyze a bit where that confidence comes from. 🙂 And how fleeting it is throughout the process.

I talk about my very scientific writing process of “ooohhh” and “yay” and about my love for romance books. Readers pick up those books knowing what the ending will be and yet we still get so enthralled by them. I think that’s really a testimony to the magic and the art of writing romance.

I also mention the podcast “My Imaginary Friends with L. Penelope”‘s latest episode which I recommend for all writers struggling with their manuscript: https://lpenelope.com/podcast/

And I give an update on my upcoming plan for #TheLeftoverBride cover reval…Don’t forget #TheLeftoverBride is available for pre-order for only $0.99.  Choose your favorite e-retailer here: https://books2read.com/TheLeftoverBride

Trying out a new book review strategy and SO MANY emotions about the release of #SweetsForLove A self-published author's diary

Today, I share with you my new (to me) strategy to get advance book reviews, using TikTok, Instagram (and relying on my newsletter which I've always done) and contacting readers from Netgalley who have reviewed a previous book in the series and who mentioned they'd be interested in contacting with me. The first #SweetsForLove reviews are raving! 🙂 Oh and you can get your own copy here: https://books2read.com/u/3Gwzpa In addition, I have created a #SweetsForLove Bingo 🙂 (bit.ly/SweetsForLoveBingo) and I have a #SweetsForLove Team (Facebook group and discord channel). And I'm also explaining why this release week is *very* emotional (in a lot of ways). I'm pretty calm about the release itself but knowing my book touches readers and makes them smile is … an amazing feeling. And I may be slightly reflective right now.
