Thank you to everyone who downloaded ‘Broken Palace’ yesterday and to those who helped me promote it.
I’ve looked at the reports on Amazon and I’m both excited and nervous. There were a LOT of downloads, and that confirms two things for me.
- Everyone loves a freebie 😉
- Everyone is going to have an opinion on the work.
It was my first attempt at a short story, and it also includes excerpts from my two crime novels.
Reviews are welcome, good or bad. If there are any criticisms, please make them constructive.
I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that for a lot of authors, we all feel very anxious when we share our work with the world. We can spend weeks, months and even years working on a project, and, understandably, we can feel very protective over our ‘baby’.
Part of being a writer is about learning and improving our work, being open to new ideas or seeing things from another person’s perspective.
Sometimes we need to take the plunge, and get the work out there. Otherwise how else can you find out what works and what doesn’t?
