Sales: The Cold, Hard Truth

Wow, that is not a catchy headline for this blog post. Sorry, guys. I guess I’ve been a bit of a downer IRL lately. Online? I haven’t been as present, as you’ve probably noticed from my lack of posts. I really want to be positive on here, so I’m going to deviate a minute from the subject and say…


Thank you to each and every one of you who purchased and read any of my books. Without you, I would lose my sanity. It’s true, not a joke. And while I’m mentioning you, could I ask a little-big favor? If you are so inclined, please add my book to your shelf on Goodreads. You can give it a star-rating, no need for a review if you don’t like writing those. Or if you LOVE to review books and have read any of mine, it would be very kind of you to leave a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or wherever you got my books. I would be forever grateful. Truly.

Now, to the not-fun stuff. THINGS HEARD IN A GRAVEYARD will not be coming out any time soon. Why? Two reasons: It’s not ready, and book sales are really bad right now. I’m having to brainstorm very hard how to get my e-books out there. Yes, e-book marketing is a real bugaboo. But I’m not giving up.

My main deal is that I want my books to be read. I want to entertain. It’s just hard getting the right book in the right hands.

On the FUN NEWS part: Starting this Wednesday, I am going to attempt to comment on 100,000 blogs/blog posts in one year! Just for the heck of it, because everyone’s blog needs some lovin’, am I right?

Thanks for hanging with me. Readers are truly something to be grateful for, and I am ❤

Keep your nose in a book,

And, just for fun, my interpretation of Blink from Marvel’s The Gifted:

Beth Overmyer wears several hats, all belonging to different writers. From fantastical kidlit to everyday popular fiction, Beth pens her work with gusto. In 2008, her screenplay The Method won best comedy at Gotham Screen’s contest, and in 2012, her MG book In a Pickle came out from MuseItUp Publishing.
