I am trying to work on the things that I enjoy and this post is a short summary of what I got done by doing just that.
What I Got Done Over The Past Week
I finished reading a book called Straight Talking by Jane Green. This book was actually published in 1997. I bought it at a second hand shop and it had been sitting on my shelf for several years. I finally read it and realised why it had sat on the shelf for several years. It wasn’t very good.
I think the style is reminiscent of Bridget Jones’ Diary, where the story revolves around a middle class woman looking for love in all the wrong places. The problem with the book is that it is really difficult to like the central character. You can sort of imagine the type of person she is and once you have that image in you head, you don’t really wish for a happy ending for her. Definitely Chick-lit at it’s very worse.
I checked the reviews that this book got – many people had the same opinion as me. Not really worth the bother.
I Wrote two blog posts, the one you are reading now and one that I added to my website Two Pretty Things. This was more of an Amazon review type post for a product that someone had clicked on. I wanted to see if I could make any more money from it so quickly added a post.
I added 20 more micro-posts to Bubblews. Again, these were quick, easy and fun to write and publish. Here are a couple of choice links for you to check out:
I had a three day free promotion for my latest book, Diary of a Summer Camp Counsellor. I am happy that people downloaded the book. It was interesting to see that the amount of downloads have dropped significantly compared to last year. I know that Amazon are changing things up so this is not as effective a strategy as it used to be.
I just checked and someone has left a lovely review for the book. I am over the moon. I hope that some sales will follow. I will let you know what happens
I will be creating and adding a new PLR pack to my website The PLR Boutique. It has been a while since I have written an article pack but it is a good time to work on my residual type income.
I hope to continue working on some short stories so that I can get another book published for February.
