A New Direction

In the ten years since if first uploaded Southern Man to Amazon.com, I have sold enough books, of all my titles, to buy a Happy Meal. Well, it's not quite that dismal, but it's pretty bad. The problem is not my writing -- far more badly written fiction gets published and sells ... the problem is that I cannot stand to do marketing and promotion. And it just HAS to be done.

As P.T. Barnum said....

"Without promotion, something terrible happens.

So I am I'm learning how to promote my titles. I have made a Facebook author page. I have completely redesigned my author website, and it is ready to upload when I find a new webhost. I am learning about "reader magnets" and newsletters. I am going to republish some of my older books, and re-cover and re-blurb all of them.

There are other aspects of promotion and marketing I will have to learn, but this is a start. We will see how it goes.

Here are two of the re-designed covers, for my romantic suspense titles. All I did was add people to the cover, but the folks in my writers groups think this change makes them look more like romances. 

Meanwhile, I'm working on Book Four of the Legacy of Fortitude series... It is turning out to be a real heart-tugger.

And waiting out there in the future, the Walravens....
