My dear friend and a fantastic writer has their first romance novel out, Welcome to Elmwood Park. I’m doing my best to support them, because I know that it’s good (I helped edit it). It’s going for 99 cents, and worth a lot more
It’s quite risque, but extremely well written. Maybe even better than my stuff (and knowing how arrogant I am, that says a lot 😉 )
Hey everybody, guess what day it is? No, it’s not Hump Day (although everyday should be hump day) It’s BOOK RELEASE DAY! Welcome to Elmwood Park is available on KindleSelect. If you already bought it, it’ll be waiting for you on your Kindle This is not my first novel. Under a different name, I’ve had […]
via HAPPY BOOK RELEASE DAY! — A.C. Anderson (and friends!)
I am lying next to you, your head nestled beneath my chin. Your hair tickles, but your arm, draped over my chest, feels warm. A comfort. A comfort because I have someone that holds me, and someone to hold. I have someone to take care of, and someone that takes care of me.
I had a conversation with a friend of mine the other day. She is in a new relationship and madly in love with this guy. While talking about him, she said “I thought that I knew what love was with ____, but now I really know what it is with ____.”
I didn’t say anything at the time, and it wasn’t until later that I realized that something didn’t click with me. It’s about love.
So the good news is that my blog broke 17,000 views the other day. I don’t know if that’s good or not, but it’s a few thousand more than last year. The bad news is that I was hoping to break 20,000, and it doesn’t look like I’m going to do that. Still, I’m happy.
I got my review for The Watchmage of Old New York back from the Writer’s Digest 24th Annual Self Published Book Awards. No, I didn’t win. I did score an average of 4 out of 5 though, but I feel that I could’ve done better. The full review pointed out some weaknesses, some i was aware of, some I was not. I’m considering posting the review. It’s brutally honest. My mood has been pretty shitty for some time now, and the review didn’t make me feel any better. I know that it’s a big contest and a 4/5 is pretty good considering that thousands enter. It just feeds into my insecurities that I’m not good enough. But hell, what good writer thinks they are? If you don’t think that your work is shit, you’ll never try to get better.
The constant rejection from agents has been hurting me too. I’ve pretty much given up.
Man, all of my stuff goes to dark places these days. I’m having trouble writing the 3rd Watchmage book. The second one is still in edit phase. My super secret romance project under a different name (shhhhh!) is almost ready, and the website going along with it is becoming something bigger than I expected. I don’t talk about sexuality here for good reason, but I’m human and it’s a big part of who I am. Like everyone else, I need to be loved…preferably as often and in as many different positions as possible. 😉
Ok, that’s why I don’t talk about it here. Bad Craig! Naughty, evil Craig!
Ok, I’m punching out. I’m freaking starvin.
