Risk and reward…the delay factor
December 11, 2010 § Leave a comment
In this, my first blog entry, you get to watch me awkwardly take yet another risk. It’s one thing to sit at my computer and make up stories day after day, wondering if any person besides me will think my product is worthy. Now that I’ve gotten the call and a publishing company wants to stand behind LAST RESORT, I’m closer to the big reward. But the risks don’t diminish. Will anyone buy my novel? Will they enjoy it and tell me so. Will they be excited to read the next book I’ve written? More than anything I want to please you with my stories, but if I can’t get them into your hands, our rewards won’t come.
You can see, the demand to risk never ends. And now, this blog. Here I don’t write stories. Here I stick my neck out, telling you truths instead of fiction, struggling with this technology and searching for ways to mate you with my books. I’m going to stumble; I’ll probably get a bit cranky, too, about the long delay between risk and reward. Through all this, let’s encourage each other, offering ideas, good humor and hope. Okay, deep breath taken. WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
