Omg, I just realized I never told you guys that I did a podcast a couple weeks ago! I’m so sorry. It’s been a little crazy. Here is that podcast if you’re interested: Podcast.

The ladies who interviewed me were super nice. If you happen to look at any of the other podcast interviews, I really enjoyed most of them and they cover every aspect of the writing world. Especially when it comes to independent authors. The topic I chose was all about social media and the importance of it. If it’s not your thing, I would suggest taking a listen to understand why we need it when it comes to marketing ourselves.

So in case you haven’t been keeping up, my second book is out in less than 2 weeks! 8 days to be exact. I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW CLOSE IT’S GETTING! I’ve been trying to get things ready with it and perfecting it before it goes public. But let me just say how incredibly grateful I am to my ARC readers! Of course I didn’t have a perfect, error-free manuscript and they told me! Just little things here and there, but sometimes it can really take the reader out of the story. One thing that was found was really helpful as it was an inconsistency as far as age went. So, I was super happy that was noticed. And I’m also very happy that some of them submitted reviews already, letting everyone know what they are getting before they get it. It’s so awesome. Thank you guys!

Besides book things, I was recently promoted at my day job and that has me much busier than before. I’m actually really happy where I am too because I have more responsibilities and get to actually talk to people on the phone and build relationships. It’s much better than directing calls and dispatching (it can get old, fast). But now that my boss just left and we have no one to replace him yet, it’s gonna probably get even busier.

Anyways, thought I’d give you all an update about what’s going on with me. I have also slowed down on the Indie-Go Interviews. I may start doing it again, but we’ll see. I hope you all have been doing well and that the summer heat isn’t dragging you down too much!

Happy Trails,
