As I said, November was supposed to be chillax month for me - where I read lots of books to refill the creativity well. It's now 12 days into November and I think I've succeeded in reading one novel and one novella. NOT doing well at all.
The culprit sucking my chillax time?
As I want to start my next book in December (probably earlier if my itchy fingers are anything to go buy), I'm trying to do at least one guest blog post a day at the moment for everything I've got lined up around the release of ONE PERFECT NIGHT. And I'm trying to make the posts interesting and not generic so that anyone kind enough to read them will not be bored or feel like I'm shoving my books down their throats.
I'm actually really enjoying answering the guest blog questions and also writing up the posts I've been invited to do but it's amazing how time-consuming this task is. I know promo is NOT a dirty word and it's a fact of the writer's life but it IS cutting into my reading time.
I guess I just need to be more picky with what I read :)
Speaking of reading, what's the best book you've read this November?
P.S. Hopefully I'll be able to share my good news this week!
