It's Thursday finally! This week has dragged and been really fast. I hate when time does that, it messes with your mind.
So, most of you know I work from home. In theory I should be able to write all day right? Well I try, I try so hard!
But, I also manage Milly Taiden's Shared World's in which we are launching our third world in March. I PA for a few clients and I'm my grandmother's taxi. So some days I feel like I do everything but write or even market!
It's funny as a PA for almost 6 years I lectured authors on marketing, now that I'm writing... I just don't do it.
Anyways I was rambling again. I was talking with a friend the other day, another newbie author like myself.
We talked about helping others out and as a PA I have helped other authors and PA's for years. I have always answered any question asked and even recommended clients to each. I helped a new cover artist create a group, build a following and sent tons of new clients her way. Now, she has no time to even talk to me when I want to commission her for something. Another I introduced to beta reading and lots of authors, she was GOOD! Within a few months she started a company and charged to read for authors. Then became a PA and tried to poach my clients. I have had a few PA's I have helped go after my clients in the past.. grrr.
Anyways my point is a remember your roots, who helped you get where you are. The authors who are there for you in the beginning, the readers who loved you before you were an author, supported you when you started out and never wavered. They are the diamonds in the rough and worth more than anything.
To each of you who have supported me on my journey, whether we met 5 years ago or yesterday. Thank you, you all mean the world tome and I will never forget you.
