Let’s Talk Shall We?

Hey everyone, something’s been on my mind for a bit so…

Yesterday a post about an upcoming giveaway posted and I need to share an update on it.

I’ve never had any problems in regard to being a part of a group giveaway on Prolific Works until the most recent one.

I was sent an email on June 28th notifying me that my books had been removed from the A Different World: Protagonists of Color giveaway. Confused I asked the organizer in the comments section on the Group Giveaway details page.  I was told that I hadn’t promoted which wasn’t true because I had and I shared this information on the comments page. The response I received was a passive aggressive one that was directed to everyone which basically stated that if one didn’t promote during the promotion they would be permanently banned from all upcoming giveaways. This past week the organizer mentioned this again and another person commented that they had let time slip away from them and they would promote to which the organizer stated something along the lines that “The proof is in the pudding.” in regards to promoting.

Now these comments have been erased from the comment section by the organizer and I didn’t think to screenshot them at the time. However,  I do have screenshots of my promotion activities (I also have one last promo scheduled later today):

I’m not sure why the organizer acted this way, perhaps it was in response to the low numbers of downloads for each book in the giveaway. Also this what the organizer of each giveaway can see for the promotions that they do:

But even with this how can they tell who promoted and haven’t?

I don’t want to cause any trouble but I’m upset that I’ve been accused of not promoting when I have been.  I don’t have a huge following and I do my best promoting on here, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and my mailchimp.  So while I highly disagree with the organizer’s actions and my books have been removed from the giveaway, I want to encourage you to download the ebooks featured in the giveaway.

Please remember to leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble once you’re finished reading.  The number of reviews a book receives affects its visibility on these sites, so if you want to support authors please leave a review! They appreciate it.

It’ll be a while before I do giveaways again. I don’t appreciate anyone falsely accusing me when I have proof that I’ve promoted.  Thank you for downloading my books and giving them reviews.

Until next time!

Time For A Break…

Tonight 2018 comes to a close and so does my years of writing. That’s right folks, I’m taking a break… but I’ll be back in the near future.

Next year I’m embarking on a new journey and while I’m scared, stressed, and apprehensive, I’m looking forward to taking this next step. What I’ll be working on will improve my life as I’ll be learning new things and expanding my knowledge on topics important to me.

But in order to do so I’ll need to focus and work hard so I won’t be posting or even writing any new books-the only caveat being that I have a story to tell and it’s flowing well. I might post things on my Facebook from time to time but I’ll rarely be online for a while.

A big thank you to all who’ve supported me in big and small ways throughout the years and thanks to those who didn’t believe in me. I’ve learned a lot from all of you. If you would like to support me, please purchase a copy (or copies) of my works and leave a review. 

I think a break’s needed as I’m becoming worn down and bit disappointed with where things stand. Hopefully that’ll change when I return.  For now I bid you adieu, farewell, goodbye. Best wishes and many blessings in 2019.

Stay safe, keep resisting and don’t go quietly into the night.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MONTH!

Today’s the day! Halloween month is finally here!

So this month, I want to post some hallowed related posts so keep and eye out for them!  Enjoy the month, eat lots of candy (just don’t get a toothache like I did last year), rock that costume(s)-don’t pick a racist one or do black/brown/yellow face if you do a curse upon your houses. Spend time with your family and friends watching scary movies or do it by yourself and celebrate the month!

Until next time,

Stay scary my friends!

Arriving This April: Acrostic & Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination

Happy Wednesday folks!

I’ve returned from my spring break refreshed, and I hope that your spring break is or was a good one for you. Today I have an announcement. April’s National Poetry Month and I’ve got two poetry books being released! First up is the start of a new series for me titled Acrostic.

 

This book is my first attempt at writing acrostic poems and you’ve got a couple of KPop groups to thank for that. With their many attempts of doing acrostic poetry, I became curious and gave it a try.  It was a fun experience and I hope to write a second entry. Acrostic will be available in print and ebook formats. Add it to your GoodReads Shelf.

My second book Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination, is a print collection of my NaPoWriMo ebooks that I’ve written from 2014-2017. This year I won’t participate in NaPoWriMo so this book will take the place of the poems that I would usually write.  Thirty Days of Expressive Imagination will only be available in print. Add it to your GoodReads Shelf. 

Both books will be available on Createspace, Amazon, & Barnes and Noble. Acrostic will be available on Smashwords.

These two books get me 2/3’s of the way to my goal of publishing three books for the year. Currently I’m taking a break from writing but I hope to return to it in order to achieve my goal.
