What started out all those years ago as a glorified hobby, one that didn’t amount to a hill of beans at the time, has gradually rebuilt itself.
Like Frankenstein’s monster, built of odds and ends with a very limited knowledge of what would work, not to mention all the things that should work but for some inconceivable reason, don’t.
Just lately, the whole nine yards has snowballed, becoming something we hardly recognise.
Two years ago, we knew nothing of social networking and self-publishing, not to mention Amazon, Smashwords and Goodreads. Now we are writing and editing, blogging and reviewing, not to mention endlessly looking for places to promote our books.
All our efforts, I am pleased to report, are having some effect and our individual and shared platforms are slowly growing.
Our days are filled with questions and ideas, sometimes we are pleased with our progress, and other times frustrated with our own shortcomings,
I have a feeling that next year will bring more of the same and hopefully a little good news along the way.
So, next week we will down tools and take a break. Concentrate on family matters and leave the PC turned off.
We will be back in the New Year, and hope that every single one of all the wonderful people we have met (and you know who you are) have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…
