New vlog!

Come check out my new vlog!!

 

Catching you guys up, and a short rant (sorry)

So I really really really don’t like the new set up for WordPress. It is incredibly difficult to share vlogs, and really just to navigate. I may feel this way because it’s been for fucking ever since I’ve updated. I’m sorry. I have filmed a few new vlogs, which I will just share the playlist here (hopefully):

Let’s see if that freaking works. The newest vlogs start at about #34, I believe. I have changed the formatting and now, instead of only talking about my books, I am talking about important stuff in the writing world. I will also talk about other things that are important to me, but right now we’re following the Amazon Kindle scammer issue.

I have moved (again) but my husband and I are back in a populated area, which is nice. I enjoy being around people that don’t abuse animals or mooch off of me. Plus, I get to live near my best friend, which is awesome. I am still working on the rewrites for Celine, but it should be done in the next few months.

Other good news, I am launching my own handmade soap company in a few months, with a couple of my friends. We are called Bunny & Bee. The company is launching in just a couple of months, so stayed tuned for more on that.

On to my rant. I enjoy making book covers. I haven’t had as much time lately, but I do enjoy it. It’s fun. However, some times you get a client that is ridiculous. I don’t mean a ‘haha’ kind of ridiculous, I mean a completely unprofessional kind of ridiculous. I have been contacted by an individual sporadically for the several months and I can’t do it any more. At first, I understood, things happen. Now every time this person pops back up their first question is about how much I charge for this, that, and the other, regardless of how many times I tell them the exact same thing. I’m a woman of my word. If I tell you something is going to be $45, not including cost of stock images, then that is what the price is. I understand this person doesn’t know me, but they have asked the same question the last 3-4 times they’ve messaged me.

As both an author and cover artist, being able to see from both sides really sucks. I want to be super angry. We’re talking flying off the handle, cuss filled ranting. I’m not going to do that. What makes me not want to work with or for this person is their long stretches of being gone, then acting as though it is my fault that we have not stayed in contact. In any business exchange, prompt responses are key. When I am the last one to say something in the conversation, traditionally the other person should respond. Otherwise, it’s a monologue, or a blog post.

To be honest, I have so much going on in my life, that I can’t wait around for someone that may or may not respond for 2-3 months at a time. This is probably going to put me on some kind of list, but whatever. I’m not demanding that people behave a certain way to please me specifically, I am just speaking about how I feel. (I hope this makes sense.)

Anyway, thank you guys so much for reading. I promise to try to be better about keeping up with these posts.

Vlog 33

Vlog 32 Road Trip (never again)– Vlog Monday on Tuesday

Due to internet issues yesterday, I was forced to delay the release of the vlog. Not a good start to the return, huh? But the way I see it is better late than never 😀

So, Tori and I went on a road trip from California to Texas. Of course, I had to document. The title will make sense once you watch the vlog. Hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to subscribe!

I’m sorry for the lack of vlogs

There is seriously nothing new to report and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time. I appreciate you all for your understanding.

No Vlog Today

I don’t have anything new to talk about today so there will not be a vlog. If you have any ideas for something that you would like to see, please leave a comment down below!

 

Thank you all so much for your views, your reads, and your support. It means so much to me!

Vlog 31– Happy Vlog Monday (Sorry it’s so late!!)

Vlog Monday on Tuesday!!

There will not be a vlog today

I had a great vlog planned out, but I am starting to get sick and I feel to gross to even attempt to film. I appreciate your understanding guys, and I promise it will be out next week.

 

In the mean time, I will go ahead and announce that there is a new section in the works for the Youtube channel. I am planning out an 8 part series called “The Guide to Self Publishing.” I may end up with more parts than that, but I  have 8 episodes planned out so far. It’s going to break down self publishing and emphasize on why it’s such a great thing to get into. It will be going up in a few weeks, I have some more scripting to do as well as filming.

 

Anyway, thank you guys for the support and I am so sorry I am not filming today. Check in for tomorrow’s post!
