Recovery Complete

Spent the last month resting from my marketing labors. Felt like I’ve been on a bullet train since January, when The Underground was published. It was just a whirlwind, scouting opportunities, working on interviews, guest posts, preparing for the book launch and whatever else came along the way. I used up my marketing budget–much faster than I would’ve thought–and now have to save for the next round. Whether I’ll be marketing The Underground or the next book remains to be seen.

And then, of course, I have to get back to writing.

Anyway, I still have some interviews and guest posts that I’ve committed to, but now I’m ready to clean up. By that I mean gathering receipts and putting each in its proper folder, getting all those boxes of swag, flyers and what not out of the den, getting the books out of the dining room and putting them all someplace else (where, I have no idea).

In the midst of all this activity, though, I did keep an eye on my reviews. Boy, is The Underground getting hammered on Goodreads! My 5 star rating has declined to 3.07. Some of the reviewers ripped into my characters so bad we’ve all had to go into group therapy. If it’s that bad, it makes me wonder if I should bother with the sequel. I know a review is just one person’s opinion, but when that many people are of the same opinion, it makes one wonder. Unless they’re being trolls. I don’t know. Anyway, I’ll have to figure it out.
