If you are an author who is constantly looking for inspiration, I hope this video aids you in that.

In June, I went to Washington State to visit my daughter who was getting married. She was gracious enough to take time out from wedding prep to show me her bees, and how she does things for them. It was a really fun time and I learned a lot. Including the fact that I adore bees and pollinators of all kinds.

Tarot for Writers: Jack and Diane

In this video, I pull tarot cards for a writer out there who is trying to plot a book but everything is going TOO WELL. Enter Jack and Diane…who I meant to say Billy Joe and Bobbi Sue. Anyway, have a laugh at my expense in this little tarot card pull for writers.

The deck I am using is called the Millennium Thoth deck, and it can be purchased here: https://amzn.to/3wMNgk4

Why You’re Not Getting Book Sales

Why you’re not getting book sales

Today, let’s chat about book sales and the lack of results…the sales you’re NOT getting.

So, say you wanted to excel as a writer in any genre, but you didn’t know how. Could you do it?

In this video, we’re going to talk about how some writers struggle with finding their sweet spot.

You know what? When you just get started as an author, when you launch your very first book–when you first begin on the publishing journey–it’s exciting and fun and just the thought of readers enjoying your book and going to book events and signing your books for adoring fans, and oh yeah, ALL THAT MONEY you make on doing something you really love to do, it is FANTASTIC!

And certainly, if I can do it, you can do it.

But just because I can and have (13 books so far)-doesn’t mean you can repeat and rinse and come out with the same book sales.

So, to find out more about my thoughts on this subject and also see some fun video of a day at the farmer’s market near my home, check out the YouTube channel video above. If you like it, please consider subscribing.

Positive affirmations for writers

Let’s get POSITIVE!

Positive affirmations. Ah, yes.

Have you ever thought about how much negative self-talk you produce every day? I didn’t either until recently when I found a fellow online that really impressed me with his affirmation ideas. This got me to thinking… and I decided that everyone INCLUDING WRITERS needs positive reinforcements.

So, this week’s video is all about positive affirmations for writers. That’s all writers, young, old, and in-between.

Many people have wonderful positive affirmations like I am beautiful, I am peaceful, I am joyful. But I wanted to say things like, I am a writer. Because sometimes we just need to hear that.

I have put together this little video with voiceover speaking positivity into your ear. I hope it is something that benefits you in the days to come. If you ever need someone to just talk to about writing, well, I am always listening.

Please consider liking, sharing, and subscribing to the Writer Groupie channel over on YouTube. I would love to have you as a fan and follower.

Writer Groupie is also on iTunes if you are a podcast listener. Sometimes it is about writing, sometimes it is about writing mindset. If that sound like something you would be interested in, would you consider adding the podcast to your favs?
