Wednesday is the new Monday!

Wow! It’s just pouring in my town. I hope you guys are staying dry and warm. Wish I could do that, I need to get dressed, leave my warm house and go to my day job. Yep! I know many writers/artist do the same and all of us dream one day to just write or at least go part time.

So my question today is have to planned this dream? This is the question that occurred to me in the morning. I have been thinking about this but I have never planned it. Why? Simple, I have a fear like everyone else to let go of my comfort level.

What else stops you and me? Expertise. We have or not have put in the time to learn the expertise to go all in and actually make money from our writing. Hey if it’s just a hobby… that’s cool but if you are writing book after book or keep getting ideas… man you have to do something about it. Maybe you should be writing more.

Third thing… time. Oh this is a big one. I use this as an excuse and find myself fiddling around but not doing what I need to do. Why? Because somewhere in my head I have told myself it’s hard, it’s going to take time, it’s to much etc.

So what is stopping you? The first thing to do is identify it and then try to make small changes. Yes, small not big especially if you have someone depending on you!

Identifying what is stopping you, asking for help and doing it will get you there. For instance, I have been running around to publish my second book. The first one I published was 10 years ago and I did it for fun. As a hobby. Coming back to 2019 I did write a book and I knew and wanted to sell it. To boost it before comes out I decided to promote it through a fundraising campaign… and OMG it has been a rollarcoaster ride and I have learned a lot!

The take away message, you will also have fears and the only way to kill the fear is to do it. Writers write!

A bit about me….

I live in Australia.  Other than writing, I am one of the biggest fans of research and spend time in creative and academic writing. When I am of my desk, I want to hop on a plane and travel the world. If that is not possible, then I raids the local beaches, parks and walking trails; and most of all I love spending time reading books and drinking coffee. 



The secrets she keeps. Free chapter of Haunted.

Hello all,

I invite you to read the first chapter of my upcoming book for free. Here is glimpse of the plot!

HAUNTED

Haunted is a novel about a vicious and crafty murderer. He haunts and slaughters his victims before disappearing into the thin air. His methods are unorthodox, his motives are unclear and his victims are chosen arbitrarily.

The Cranston team and two seasoned NYPD detectives are working together on the seemingly impossible case. Their investigation is a mixed bag of clues with several dead ends. On the trail of this ruthless killer, the Cranston team stumble on mysterious creatures in the woods that seem to have stepped straight out of mythology. The detectives on the same case encounter suspects who appear to be direct decedents of the devil himself.

READ THE FREE CHAPTER: The secret she keeps

I am running a fundraising campaign (click here) to fuel the publishing of my book. Also it gives my readers an opportunity to be involved in the publication process.

How does it work? Pledge $15, get the ebook. Pledge $25 get the paperback version. People can also donate/pledge for no reward.

Confessions of a novelist…

As a writer, its is an exciting time for me. My second book will be out in Nov 2019 and I started a Kickstarter campaign to promote it and also engage my readers. Since I began this venture, I have been asked some questions about my book, and I thought it would be a great idea share them with everyone!

1) Could you share with us your thoughts about Haunted?    

Haunted is a book I began four years ago and what amazed me the most was the plot. I had never thought of anything like this before and it was really exciting to realize that I can write such a story. I began a Kickstarter campaign for Haunted because it allowed me to share the book’s journey before it was published. Usually readers see the end product, but I also wanted to share the process with them. 


2) How did you come up with this idea?   

My process for every book is different. I never know when or how I will get an idea. Seriously, I am not joking! My first book ‘Black Moon’ came to me in a dream. Haunted is special and I can’t specifically explain how I got the idea. It jump starts with the old ship buried in the desert on which innocent souls were slaughtered and the person who finds the ship believe the madness isn’t over. And she is right! Once I had the idea, the novel wrote itself.

3) What do you want to share with the backers who pledge for the project? 

First of all, I want to say thank you! Thank you for believing in me and my book. For giving us a chance. I am especially grateful to my friends and family. I really hope you like the book and I wish you would remember that it was because of your contribution and encouragement this book/project came to life.  


4) Do you have any special message to be shared?

The first chapter The secrets she keeps is available online. Check it out! Back this project by preordering the book via pledging @ kickstarter. All donations are welcome which will be funneled into this project and please spread the message. Thanks!

The best of 21st Century: Social media loves your art

QUEST TO PUBLISH HAUNTED – http://kck.st/2YOOhL3

Hello all,

Art is something personal, something you have imagined and you manifest it from your imagination into something physical like a picture, a tool, a machine, a book or a painting.

We like in the wonderful world of social media which is the best communication platform that you can use to reach people who might be interested in your work. Of course you will have some naysayers, but there are lot of people who do appreciate your work and all forms of social media Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc can be a good place to start.

Learning from my own experience. As you know that I am in a middle of a crowdfunding endeavour for my book – Haunted. In the last ten days I have discovered that power of social media and how it is helping me getting my book better. Also, most of all how to let people know about your work.

Take this post for instance. It was one of my earlier posts and I was a bit worried about putting it out there since I have never done anything like this before.

Of course it needed a paid boost in the beginning but once it was out there there was no stopping it.

Sharing your work also forces you to think differently. You can’t post the same thing over and over. Innovation is the key. A few days ago I posted the following pictures which are clues to the murder mystery. Just a few weeks ago I wouldn’t have thought of this!

As a artist you have a great opportunity to use social media to your advantage.

Want to know more about what I am up to? Check out the crowd funding endeavour that I am running. Its simple if you pledge you are one of the first people to get the book. There are various options available with more details here: http://kck.st/2YOOhL3

Happy blogging.

Rebooting your project is not a bad idea.

Wow, this weeks has been a roller coaster ride! 

Last week I launched a kickstarter campaign to publish my book! Hooray! 

There was just one problem… I gave myself to little time. 😦 (yeah I know). 

So I tried to get in touch with the admin people on Kickstarter to extend my project. After forty eight hours of trying I get a reply that if I want to extend my project I have to cancel the current one and create and launch a new one!

Yes, I am treky and I have love the Star Trek reboot. 🙂

Now, back to my story!

OMG! OMG (this is me throwing tantrums). This I felt was a huge risk? Why? Because I already had five backers. In other words my campaign had just gained some traction and of course if I cancelled the project I could lose them.

It was really risky, but I didn’t think I could reach my goal of 2500 dollars in 22 days! No way! So I reached out to my backers and explained the situation to them. 

You know what I discovered. People truely care for you and they understand. They understood! I am so grateful and lucky to have such people support my campaign. 

I worked hard for the next twenty four hours, created the new campaign, cancelled the old one and started from the beginning! You know what happened? Out of the blue, I got a new backer who pledge a very generous amount. I was in tears… and I couldn’t contain my happiness. Yes all my previous backers are back again… but still I had someone new, someone who believed in me and was ready to pledge. Ready to support me. It has been a lovely experience and I wanted to share it with you.

Hi, I am a early writer who is trying to publish her book. After many (disappointing) attempts to get my book published traditionally, I am now turning towards self publishing and I have began a crowdfunding venture for the same. To bring this dream of mine to life I seek help from you because this crowd funding is all or none. Meaning if I don’t reach the goal of $2500 the project will not be funded. Please back my project @ http://kck.st/2YOOhL3


I hope you like the graphics! Thanks in advance!
