Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I posted the last blog entry. I'd try to explain my sluggish blog behavior by saying I've been busy--and I have been busy--but no more than normal, really. The class I taught in the spring was a challenging one in some ways, but that's really no excuse.
My new western was released and I'm afraid it's disappearing into the vast ocean of other books published in ebook form. I've tried self-publishing for the most recent couple books, and it just hasn't worked out very well. I am the world's worst marketing person, no doubt about it. Independent publishing requires a lot of self-promotion, and I absolutely hate that part of the business.
I have a new suspense novel that's nearly finished, but I won't send this one out into the world until I find another agent to represent it. I'm going back to the old-fashioned way of publishing, even though it will probably slow the process to turtle-time.
