I knew that dividing my time this week between writing and blogging would be an issue. On top of which I’m still unsure about getting into my blog, using a terribly complicated password that I’ll never remember. Even now I can feel my adrenalin level higher than it should be at this time of night! But I’m in and I can say a few inconsequential things, just for the practice.
I have been thinking a lot about how to use my new blog, and how to use the old website, which I set up more as a shop than as a blog space. I really want to keep this blog ‘pure’ which I may change my mind about, but that’s what I want to do right now. No shop. I thought about Amazon links for my books and others, but in doing that am I endorsing Amazon at the expense of the bookshops where I make the majority of my sales? It’s hard to decide what’s the right thing to do, and lots of conflicting advice out there to make matters worse.
If I keep the focus on the writing for the moment, maybe my mind will clear about the commercial issues. Can’t sell what I haven’t written, and when this book is done I’ll have the full trilogy. There seem to be quite a few people waiting to read Part 3, and I just hope I don’t disappoint them. Be warned, I don’t like happy endings.
