You’re “first’ in “what” now?

As a member of several online writer’s groups, I confess I have a hard time keeping up with everyone’s latest blog entry, or review, or draft, or signing. It’s not that I dislike these folks, but it’s overwhelming when everyone touts every little tick on their charts. I can’t keep up.

However, I’m truly puzzled by a number of assertions that have come my way lately. Things like “My book is number two on Amazon’s “Indie-published, historical romance, world war 2, fiction” list. Don’t miss out! Or “three weeks in the self-published cruise-ship, vampire murder mystery top ten!”

Ummm…come again? Defining your genre is one thing but this rings a bit off-key.

As a member of Paperback Swap, I made copies of my book available to other members. Can’t hurt, right? Puts it in circulation. It’s been requested several times within days of being posted. Pretty cool, eh?

So with that in mind, I’d like to proudly announce that Paperback Swap members who requested “Running Black” have also requested “Dewey – the small-town library cat who touched the world”, “Type it! A linguistically-oriented typing program” and “The Twins take a Tubby.”

Thank you – thank you. I’ll be autographing copies in the lobby.

  1. Congratulations! 😉

    I have a hard time keeping up too. I’ve almost given up as of late, which my own blog traffic can surely attest to. To be honest, I’ve grown tired of reading about writing. It feels like such a circular discussion. I’m not sure what pulls me to a blog, these days. Pictures of adorable little babies sure don’t hurt! 🙂

  2. I feel your pain. I’m so stretched thin that I missed my writers group meeting tonight. I just plain forgot about it. It wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t the president of the club.
