AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 21:32:27 -0400 (9 months ago):
If people put as much energy into doing good things as they do into trying to take advantage of others, this world would be such a better place.

AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:10 -0400 (9 months ago):
Take care, Crystal.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:17 -0400 (9 months ago):
yeah, she'd been asking me to send her a book to make teasers, so I did
CrystalB at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:21 -0400 (9 months ago):
You too Annette.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:36 -0400 (9 months ago):
she said she became hooked and then declared herself my PA
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:36 -0400 (9 months ago):
That's great, Barb.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:02:46 -0400 (9 months ago):
how are your books going
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:03:04 -0400 (9 months ago):
My sales suck, to be honest.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:03:24 -0400 (9 months ago):
mine too
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:03:28 -0400 (9 months ago):
i'm hoping she will help
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:04:00 -0400 (9 months ago):
if you can, buy a spot with Love Kissed Promotions, they charge 15.00 and I usually get a good response to it
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:04:07 -0400 (9 months ago):
I'm going to have to figure out how to get things moving without laying out a bunch of money. My husband is on disability now.
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:04:21 -0400 (9 months ago):
What do they do for $15?
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:04:36 -0400 (9 months ago):
yeah it's just me and I'm paying off student loan
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:04:44 -0400 (9 months ago):
they blast your book everywhere
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:05:01 -0400 (9 months ago):
I swear I did it for storm delight and it went from 700k down to 15k
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:05:03 -0400 (9 months ago):
I'll have to try that. Thanks for the suggestion.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:05:10 -0400 (9 months ago):
yw
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:05:19 -0400 (9 months ago):
I think we all should help each other
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:05:43 -0400 (9 months ago):
I do, too. Some authors are better about that than others.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:06:11 -0400 (9 months ago):
I know
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:06:24 -0400 (9 months ago):
I was a promoter before I was a writer though
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:06:55 -0400 (9 months ago):
I was a reviewer. Did reviews for one of the local papers in my spare time.
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:07:27 -0400 (9 months ago):
I worked for that bleeping paper for decades and they wouldn't even give me a paragraph of coverage about my books.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:07:48 -0400 (9 months ago):
that really sucks
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:08:14 -0400 (9 months ago):
Yeah, considering I wrote a whole page on a former Tribune reporter who self-published two books.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:08:30 -0400 (9 months ago):
was it a romance?
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:09:13 -0400 (9 months ago):
No, although the second one had a subplot on an affair.
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:09:26 -0400 (9 months ago):
But yeah, I get what you're saying. There's a real bias about romances.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:11:03 -0400 (9 months ago):
yes there is
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:11:44 -0400 (9 months ago):
I even get that attitude among my former journalism friends who belong to book clubs. I know they read, but they won't try my books.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:12:03 -0400 (9 months ago):
I just don't get it
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:13:13 -0400 (9 months ago):
It's probably the most popular genre out there. But because most of the readers are female, it gets dismissed as trivial.
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:14:10 -0400 (9 months ago):
I think we've all seen in the past week how alive and well sexism is in this country. I watched some asshat yell "Who cares?" to a reporter's question about the Trump sexual allegations.
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:16:38 -0400 (9 months ago):
Shelby wants to go outside so I'd better go. Thanks for hosting this. "See" you at Sunday's chat.
IzzySzyn at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:17:13 -0400 (9 months ago):
ok nite
AnnetteM at Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:17:23 -0400 (9 months ago):
Night. Take care.
