Introducing Yourself As An Author

When I say introducing yourself as an author I don’t mean when you’re on stage in front of a crowd. I mean introducing

yourself at a social event. I’ve always heard that being an author you should always promote yourself. I always hear that

every opportunity I have to engage and talk with people about me being an author I should.


I go to different types of events all the time, but it never gets old when people first find out that I write books.

Normal answers I usually get:

A. I’ve always wanted to write a book

B. You should write about me!

C. I wish I could write a book

Then, for the rest of the event people are coming up to me, “so you’re the writer?” In that voice you give a toddler who has won a shiny gold star. I think it might be my

age, but I don’t know. Does anyone else have a phrase that people normally say once they figure out you write books?

Self Publishing Friends

My last post I wrote talks about self publishing and how I believe in self publishing, but I need more self publishing friends. I’m 20 years old and I’m on my tenth book. I’ve been doing this for about two years now, but I don’t know everything. Self publishing you are totally on your own. I love this, but then again I don’t. I have questions and I’m constantly googling self publishing blogs to see what they do and if I’m doing the same things. Trying to get tips from authors and writers everywhere, but sometimes I just need a friend.

to my self publishing people out there! LET’S BE FRIENDS!
Let’s work together. Let me talk about your books on my blog and on my twitter. Let’s get through this together!

I’m Taking My Talents…

I’m taking my talents and I am moving to So… I mean, OMG! THE MAVERICKS WON! I’m so very happy that Miami didn’t win. This wasn’t their year. I am not going to talk about this all day, but AHHHHHH!

While we’re on the subject of talents, let’s talk about mine! I’ve decided that I want to make handbags. I think that I can use my sewing talents and my creative designer talents into a handbag business. From what I hear it’s pretty easy to get into the craft shows. The hard part will becoming with enough product. I’m going to start my business plan today.

As much as I’m getting a little crazy by how much I’ve got to do, I am in love with this. I’ve got one book being published this week, another book I am designing the cover today and a few other books that need to be written. It’s amazing how much I can get done within a week.

I will be updating on my crafty new projects!
