Love It or Hate It: Oh the Controversy!

As I’m moving through my blog tour I’m learning that people definitely have opinions about Angst.  Some people love it, others hate it!  It’s interesting to me because I never really thought it was that controversial.  I mean…I get it’s kinda of depressing and it can be confusing, but I never realized how much it might turn some people off.

As with everything, you can’t please everyone, if you could this world would be a pretty boring place and frankly I wouldn’t want to live here. That said, it’s hard to be an author, you have to prepare yourself mentally for the criticism you’ll get and that can be a challenge.  But I think it’s actually making me stronger.  The more I hear it, the more it makes me consider, think and move on.  I can take it. I am strong.  That’s what I’m telling myself and it’s actually working.  I am strong.  I published this book, so throw whatever you’ve got world!  I’m telling myself that I want a well rounded array of stars on Amazon.  I want 1-5, all of um!  I wanna hit each of the important ones..all the way up. It looks prettier that way.  Love/Hate.  It’s good stuff.

Stay tuned to these parts authors because I’m going to write a post soon about all my marketing efforts and which are working out the best for me.  Marketing too is hard shit.  Is any of this easy you ask?  No, hell no.  Not one part of it is easy. I’m surprised so many people want to do it.  Maybe they don’t realize until afterward how hard it is.  So many things in life are that way.  You don’t take the medicine until it’s time and then you realize, it tastes horrible.  But for those that are serious, it’s worth it.  It really is.  So keep truckin’.

So if you want to check it out, here are the 3 stops of my tour today and if you do check it out, be sure to enter the giveaway so that you can love or hate Angst yourself!

  1. That’s what I’m talkin’ about. And why I’m following you, because I know you’re going to be completely open about what’s happening with the book. You’re hacking a path through the undergrowth, and I intend to use it!
