After six years, I’m done. The publishing world has changed, we all know it. So has the world of blogging.
Once upon a time, as recently as 2-3 years ago, a blog was crucial for outreach, for getting to know readers and other authors. Blogging meant putting oneself out there. No more.
Readers find books and authors via other algorithms. Via Amazon and Goodreads and who knows where. There is far less interest in the individual thoughts of individual authors like me.
I’ve loved this blog. It is precious to me. I’ve loved interacting with my readers and my friends. I will miss writing posts and reading your comments. But it’s time to make a change. And change is good. I’ll have more time to write regular old books.
Regular old books… Therein lies the reason I began this blog– to get my books read. Well, you’re reading them. And I thank you.
This blog will become a website. I’ll keep my blog posts archived. You can read them anytime! I plan to include a number of features and I’ll post updates whenever I release a new book.
So ends an era. It’s been fun. You all keep in touch because I would be lost without you. Love, Julia
