Who Am I Kidding?

Now that murder mystery Evil in the Mirror has been released into the wild, my life is starting to change in subtle ways. With a flurry of rave reviews on Facebook and Websites selling the book, my ego has been caressed and messaged. While working hard to write an exciting and worthy novel, I didn't think ego would play any part if the book were to have success. Who am I kidding? I love it! To be recognized as a good writer is like chocolate on vanilla ice cream.

Of course, I was informed by many people early on, that, "You can't make any money as a newbie fiction writer. You have to write and publish self-help e-Books" Well, guess what? I wrote and self-published two good e-Books and still didn't make any money!

Where does that leave me now? Ah, yes, EGO...that's why being applauded makes me happy. You can't take it to the bank, but it sure feels good. Maybe that's why I started a sequel in earnest. I have not a clue where this writing murder mystery thing will take me, but I am totally committed on going there and I plan to take my inflated ego with me....

Write on,
