The female is tired. She hasn’t written any new words in two days, as she’s been doing all of those things required to finalize books for publication. In good news, The House Lost at Sea is finished. Hooray!
In bad news, she’s still scrambling to get other stuff done, including some polishing work on older titles. That’s mostly done. (She just needs to name a few more chapters, as she really likes naming the chapters of her books now. It’s an obsession. She might need help.)
We of the Furred & Frond Management have some observations we wish to share with you.
1: The male really likes computer games and has figured out the female will play games in exchange for food. This has resulted in many food offerings to keep the female playing computer games in the evenings.
2: Some readers like to complain, and when they don’t like a book, they come back and read the next book, they insist on complaining again, and generally make themselves more upset each time because they keep purchasing books they don’t like.
Please don’t buy books you don’t like, humans. If you were unhappy with the previous book, don’t preorder the next. Just wait to read the sample. If the sample doesn’t make your heart happy, the rest of the book isn’t going to make your heart happy.
If you keep buying books you don’t like and leave mean reviews, that indicates only one thing: you are not good at picking books you like.
Please pick books you like.
3: We have also noticed readers get upset when authors either a: write the same type of book over and over or b: fail to write the same book over and over.
We have witnessed readers get upset with the same exact author for both of these things.
If we were treating this like a drinking game, we would be dead from alcohol poisoning.
4: It is literally pointless to leave commentary directed at the female in your reviews. She doesn’t read any form of commentary directed at her, and all such commentary is generally discarded from her mental landscape. She sometimes looks at the happy commentary, but not often.
(She’s too busy writing new books, and there are far more happy people than there are unhappy people, and she’s not going to change for a few unhappy people when there are many happy people.)
If you don’t like the other books in a series, if you don’t like that the female does not write the same exact type of book with the same exact tone with the same exact general feel, she’s probably not the author for you.
She doesn’t want to reread the same book over and over again. Some books, like Bonds (Susan Copperfield), she wants to enjoy action and adventure and high seas and various things crashing. Some books, like Cold Flame (also Susan Copperfield), are more psychological in nature.
The female will not be changing this. Please pick the books you think you’ll enjoy. You don’t have to buy them all, no matter how much the female wishes every other human would love all of her books.
5: Headaches suck, and the female is weaning herself off caffeine and sugar for the sake of her blood pressure. Yuck. Saying goodbye to coffee has made a huge difference in her general health, but let’s just say she’s a grumpy bear right now.
6: The Witch & Wolf Complete Series is on sale for $0.99. It will be featured in a Bookbub mailer tomorrow! Hooray! It’s an older collection, but the female does really like it despite its age.
7: The female really likes the Run Around. It makes her happy.
8: If you don’t hear from the female next week, she’s in her trenches working. Don’t worry about it. She really wants to get a book cover for a hilarious pun she came up with for a Mag Rom Com, but she can’t unless she writes enough words on the books that are coming out soonish. (She really wants this.)
Happy reading, humans!
