My horoscope today is spot on:
“The hopes and goals of a group with which you’re associated inspire you. You might make personal sacrifices in order to assure their success. These sacrifices are temporary, for you’ll share in the group’s good fortune. Personal success is also in the stars, but it may require disruptive change. Go with the flow and don’t let self-doubt hold you back.”
The group with which I’m associated is the Awesome Indies, and indeed they inspire me. It’s great to work with other serious writers who seriously care about quality.
The “personal sacrifice” I make for them is to be at my computer by 8:15 each morning to post the group’s daily shared tweet: twitter.com/Awesome_Indies It’s not all that hard to do.
As more readers discover the Awesome Indies lists of high-quality, vetted-and-edited books, we’ll all share in the group’s good fortune — readers as well as writers. For readers, the Awesome Indies take the risk out of buying indie ebooks. If it’s on the AIA lists, it’s worth downloading.
I do hope that personal success is also in the stars. Despite the many 5-star reviews that Waterspell has received (excerpts at Waterspell.net), the trilogy has not yet been widely discovered by my intended audience — fans of science fantasy. Readers who love A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, and Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey would also enjoy Waterspell.
Now my horoscope has me wondering: What “disruptive change” must I make to see my books realize their full potential?
If you read this, please give me a sign. Show me the way. Dump me into the flow so I can go with it.
