Insecure Writer’s Support Group – One Day

It’s time for the monthly airing of insecurities!

*Kate, you’re a day early…*

Yes, logical self I know, but I have a blog hop tomorrow, and I hate posting twice in one day. So, here we go:



I’m not selling any stories. It’s super frustrating.

At first, I told myself, it’s because I’m writing a series. Well now the series is finished, and I’m still not selling.

So I told myself its the key search words. Two solid weeks of futzing with that… and I’m still not selling.

I’m on Goodreads, I have a regularly updated author’s blog, where I regularly post links to my work.   I’m on twitter, facebook, pinterest, AND tumblr!

Even my giveaways aren’t doing so well.

And while I know that logically, books can take time to build up word of mouth… it’s frustrating, and disheartening. I see people talking about my work on social media. It’s not like the few who have read aren’t talking about it.

I know people don’t dig werewolf stories, but mine are different! (*Aren’t they always…?* Shut UP, logical side!) I also know that the show Supernatural has had ten seasons,  Buffy had seven (and has been in comics since the show ended), Angel had five, and there’s a whole series of books called Monster Hunters Inc. People like stories about a ragtag group of people fighting monsters and snarking at each other.
I just have to find a way to get them to read mine…
*sigh* One day.

  1. Kate! Your work is good, and I love your characters. I’m no expert, but I’ve been to enough conventions and the like over the decade to zero it on a possible problem (to me, anyway.) And this is only my opinion, but consider giving the covers a complete makeover. Covers are the gateway, and what catches a reader’s eye.
