Life of an Author, 4/24/2017

Hi Readers,

So, I’m sharing my post on Facebook for my three Guardian League Books.  I’ve been sharing this post since Friday, posting in several groups per day, skipping the majority of Saturday, sharing on Sunday and then today when the inevitable happens-

FB Jail!  Duh-Dum!

You can hear the metal bars locking you in.

“You are restricted from posting into groups until 1:20pm tomorrow” it stated, or something like that.

Arrrgh!!!!!

Every author understands the life blood of their business is marketing and advertising. So, how is an author supposed to make it if they keep getting stuck in FB jail?  It makes me wonder about programs like Hootsuite- if they might be a better alternative.  If you’ve used it or used any other programs, I’d love to hear about your experiences.  I’ve heard pros and cons about Hootsuite.  When it comes to promoting though, sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and take a chance to find out if it will work for you in your particular circumstance or situation.  I have done this myself, paying for a Virtual book tour in the past with a big Paranormal Romance tour company used by some heavy-hitter, named authors.  Well, it might’ve worked for them but for me, the book tour bombed badly and I will never, ever, ever use them again.

So, here I am, on a beautiful Monday afternoon, clicking away on my keyboard writing my personal thoughts down until I am released from jail tomorrow after one pm.  Hope you are having a lovely day!

 

 

Why Paranormal Romance?

There are so many genres of novels out there today but one of the most popular genres is Romance.

I write in a sub-genre of Romance called Paranormal Romance.  I love the freedom involved with creating all types of worlds in one book with beings with unearthly powers while staying true to a basic, romantic story outline.  It’s true that every romance story has a general outline:  getting to know one another, coming together, separation and returning together for an HEA.  But the wonderful thing about romance is that anything else goes, especially within the realm of Paranormal Romance.

Want to explore a certain subject or two and find out what your created character does with that subject once it’s approached in the story?  This is what I love doing in my books.  My stories with Angels address all kinds of unique, sometimes uncomfortable situations.  I like to see how the Angels deal with these very human details of life or average life encounters.  For example in Centurion’s book, April and Centurion learn what a passion party is.  The conclusion of the party leads to an amazing encounter that none of them expected but fuels the movement of their relationship.

Paranormal subjects also explore unearthly magic and opportunities.  Anything you can envision, you can create and slip into a book.  The more creative you get, the more captivated your audience might be.  My Angels use force fields at times, get a crowd to forget an incident when it might be harmful to them, and even break the rules to assist their mates.  For instance, in Jasper’s book, when his mate Tatiana is heart-broken over the loss of her beautiful beagle mix, Jasper infuses her with heaven’s love despite the fact that it’s forbidden, to help her get through her beagle’s emotional anniversary date.

Standard rules do not always apply in Paranormal Romance books.  In Apollo’s book, gravity is defied when the couple affirm their love and commitment to each other, in the air.  Not only can you create worlds, powers and supernatural beings but you can also add wit and comical situations to captivate the readers’ attention and to keep the story hopping and more interesting.  I love the part where April asks Centurion about a substance called ambrosia that is supposed to make humans immortal.  Here’s the quick ending to the scene:

“Does anything exist to make one immortal?”  April commented.

“Yes, it’s called the afterlife.”

“Centurion! I’m serious.”

“So am I.”

Hahaha.  That one always has me chuckling.  You see, another reason why I love writing about Angels is because they can say something that is both comical and serious at the same time.  When Centurion says “so am I,” he’s affirming that he is serious too but he states it in a humorous, light-hearted manner.

Out of all of the subgenres within the Romance category, these are a few reasons why I, specifically, love Paranormal Romance.  Creating exotic and sometimes erotic worlds with superhuman beings that don’t exist (or exist but maybe not necessarily in the way they are depicted in a book) except in our minds is really fun.  Everyone who likes romance has a reason for their preference and these are some of mine and my thoughts for today.

~*~*  Wishing you a great beginning to your work week!  ~*~*

$2,668.94 Later…

Do you know what’s interesting?  Most don’t realize how expensive it is to be a writer.

I just finished itemizing all of the costs associated for my writing business and that is the figure I came up with.  I have spent $2,668.94, in 2016, just to keep my writing career afloat.  This doesn’t include: the cost of monthly Internet, cell phone costs for keeping in touch with my readers and PA’s by phone, text, or internet and purchases I made before I started keeping receipts to itemize, later.  It also doesn’t include all the time, energy and sweat I invested in writing my books and keeping my business running smoothly and organized.  However, this grand figure does include: purchasing books, payments to companies for hosting me in their events, gathering reviews for me, purchasing countless amounts of swag, keeping up a blog/site to keep in contact with readers, and mailing items to readers that have won my contests and giveaways, all in the effort to promote/market my books, world-wide.

All I can say is WOW!  When you look at the grand total, it really makes you think.  A beginning writer, like me, is lucky to make anything close to this in the first couple of years… if ever.  It makes you consider whether you want to keep writing or not.  For this amount of money, I could’ve taken a relaxing vacation in Hawaii, but instead I was trying to promote/market and entertain my readers with the hopes of gaining new readers, in the long run.

Authors definitely do what they do for Love.  Like many readers, authors don’t have money either.  They don’t have the extra cash, readily available, to plug into their business hence the reason why most authors work somewhere else to gain the money to do what they love on a part-time basis, instead of not doing it at all.  Can you imagine if every author realized how expensive their writing career was and just dropped out?  Stopped writing.  Started using that cash to do something else fun, like travel.  What would we, readers, do to entertain ourselves if there were no more books left on the shelves to read?

Thankfully, authors continue to write despite the fact that there’s little financial reward involved.  Many unknown authors write great books and it’s a shame they remain in the shadows.  So the next time you think you can’t afford a book, take a second and think about the one who wrote it and all the time, energy and love they put into that book that they may never recover in financial gain.

Do something wonderful and unexpected today for an author(s) you Love and let them know what you think about their work and what is it about their books that you enjoy.  Give them kudos to keep them going.  Authors soak this up like water on a hot day but, sadly, praise is sporadic at times or rare.  By telling an author you care and to keep writing, you will have added joy to their day and meaning to their career.  So, what are you waiting for?  Spread some love and joy today and tell an Author to keep writing!

Title: Jasper: Book One
Author: TK Lawyer
AMAZON BUY: http://amzn.to/2kA4bVF
Tatiana seeks rare, coveted treasure: a strong, loving, committed male she can respect, be proud of and become her full-fledged partner. She has sought this elusive prince among men, her own personal champion but instead found many, many frogs and quite a few toads. Does her hero exist on Earth, or did she miss her opportunity?
Jasper isn’t seeking a mate. His only intention is to rescue Tatiana from a fatal car accident, but he finds himself drawn to her in ways he can’t explain. She’s a rare, precious gem and there’s no turning back for him. He must know her and introduce himself in some sort of “human” fashion, at some sort of “human” event, for he is not of Earth.
Once Tatiana finds out Jasper’s true identity, will she accept and trust him? Will Tatiana allow herself to enter into a permanent, loving relationship with an unearthly but powerful being who only wants to adore and protect her?
