I don’t have writer’s block. In fact, the ideas flow too much at times. That’s a happy problem. Or, as my teenage daughter might say, “Hashtag, happy problem”.
No, my problem isn’t finding the ideas, it’s disseminating them in a financially advantageous way. The Apple iBookstore would charge me $99 to publish my book. Amazon doesn’t charge me anything. So guess where my books are? But the good news is that there is a Kindle app on iPad for people who want to read my books!
I haven’t been successful (yet) in getting into a bookstore to do a book talk, but I did go to a French Market this weekend and had a great experience (and sold books!!!).
The last few years have taught me to become a better sales person (still working on that skill – shout out to the guy in the booth next to me this weekend who sells upscale products for pets, and who gave me good advice). The problem: I’m not writing. I’m selling.
I suppose it’s also a time management issue – another skill to reflect on as summer begins to hit with full force.
Anyone else share these problems? Let me know! Support is always appreciated!!! 🙂

Happy Father’s Day (which should really be Happy Fathers’ Day)!
