Has Anybody Finished The Lion’s Den?

I Haven’t Got Much Feedback on The Lion’s Den Yet

Hey Folks, How are you doing?  I hope everybody is out there enjoying their summer, and are taking your copies of The Lion’s Den with you to the beach or poolside for your summer reading enjoyment.  I have been busy writing a short novel to be included in a Christmas collection of novellas by some of my favorite local romance writers.  My book, called “Christmas Wishes” deals with a middle aged lady, who, along with her husband, is going through a bit of a mid-life crisis, and deals with our reluctance to part with our youth.  It’s a big departure from The Lion’s Den which dealt with Middle Eastern politics and  the hunt for Osama bin Laden.  I have the second book in that series, The Jamieson Brother, in the works now, and anticipate it being published sometime after Christmas.  The amount of time and energy it takes to market and promote  books takes an enormous amount of time, and that’s time that I could be writing, which is frustrating!  I can see why writers still look to the traditional publishing houses to publish their work, because they have the resources to advertise and direct access to the right audience to direct your genre of work to.  It can take years, though, to get your work out there and you have to accept certain restrictions which limits your ability to get a decent return for your efforts.  I would certainly be open to negotiations, however should somebody approach me with an offer.  I haven’t made any inquiries to traditional publishing houses as of yet.  I’d like to get more feedback as to how the book is being received.

To that end, I encourage any of you who have read the book to comment here and tell me what you think of it.  I will accept all comments and welcome your criticism as well.  If you strongly like the book, I encourage you to leave a review on Amazon.com or .ca.  It is a good barometer of whether it’s worth my continuing to write, or if it is a waste of time.  I really appreciate the encouragement and support of people who follow my blog, or who have befriended me on Facebook.  Self-publishing can be a lonely world.
