As an author, publisher, editor and marketer of my own work for the first time; I am in the middle of a expansive mine field. In such a place it is impossible not to set a few off; some cause more damage then others; but all of them take a toll.
After making my way through without hitting any major bumps I started to get a little cocky; especially this weekend. I was marketing and marketing some more... confidant that I was doing so much that it would be impossible for it not to work.
Then Monday morning comes; and as it is for I hit the biggest section of mines. No matter which way I turn; every step is one huge minefield after another. Until all I am left with are remnants of a plan; shattered pieces of a plan scattered all around me. Leaving me with more questions and doubts then answers. Unsure how to salvage the pieces that are left; without completely starting over.
With each step I take; I seem to take a few steps back. But I do know that I still have all of my marketing in place. So at least I have that. I have the links up to my facebook page, twitter, and linked in. If you want to know more information I also have an authors page on amazon. In fact nothing really fell apart; just a few realizations and things that I was unaware of when I started out. Then again all of this is a learning curve.
One good thing about all of the crazy decisions I have been making lately; I discovered a few new dreams, two I hadn't realized before and one that I am getting really excited about. All I can say is that more projects are lining up and are on the way. I will give you a hint: Remnants.
More hints and clues to come...
