It's been a little over a month since the book was first published on Kindle. Then a couple of weeks later it came out in paperback. In hindsight it all happened really fast. But when it was happening, it all seemed so very slow. I had no way to be patient. Maybe I will be able to be more patient with the next book.
I'm getting myself on the six year plan. In six years I want to have sold a million copies. Only about 17 authors have sold a million copies of one book so naturally I'm thinking I will be one of them. Of course, at this point I'm not exactly a household name, except in my household, but I have confidence.
Everyday I try to make a least one positive step towards my goal of selling a million. Today was a rather weak day. So far I have only added a new picture to my Goodreads author profile, connected this blog to the same author profile, and connected my facebook fanpage to my Goodreads account. Plus I twittered about my paperback giveaway. Plus I posted a picture of one of my fans reading the book on Facebook.
Yep, it's all about social media. I still have many other things to do towards that end but that will be on other days.
There was a column written by Leslie Lithicum in the Albuquerque Journal about life imprisionment today. I am going to respond to the column, not because I disagree with it but I want to give her my point of view. I agree with the Parole Chief that life should mean life when a convicted murderer is sentenced. I will post my letter here after I write it just in case the Albuquerque Journal does choose to publish it.
