So I went wide. And I sold one book.
LOL. One ebook in 3 months from Barnes & Noble, the day I had my book signing. All my other sales were from Amazon. So yeah, I quit. I’m back in KDP Select, which means you can download the book from Kindle Unlimited. I might try going wide again, in a year or so. But for now I’m firmly in KU.
I’m also going to be at Conglomeration signing books. ConGlomeration 2020 will be held Easter Weekend — April 10-12, 2020 — at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Hotel. I’m kind of excited. It’s my first con as a published author and I hope to get the word out a bit more. I will not be there Easter Sunday morning. But I’ll be there the rest of the time.
I went to sleep really early last night, so I woke up really early today. Sometimes, when I’m just waking up, I hear things in my heart. Today I heard a bit of a song that my Anglican priest and his wife sang at church and it encouraged me. It’s based on these scriptures:
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord! Ps 27:14
“You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.” 2 Chr 20:17
I’m sort of clinging to these. I’ve been discouraged these past few weeks, but hearing that bit of the song renewed my hope. I went for a walk yesterday morning and sort of had it out with Jesus about my book. I’m okay with not being a huge success. I really am. But yes, I want it, and I thought He gave me that desire. Created me to be a writer, in fact.
Anyhow. I feel like this was His answer.
I’m believing it. <3
