I think there are seven stages to a Kindle Scout campaign. A few days ago, when it was first accepted for the campaign, I was in stage one, Excited Anticipation, and now I’m on the cusp of stage two – Doubt (oh, I don’t think anyone likes it at all. I might be a terrible writer). As I near the middle of the campaign I will most likely go through Anger (why won’t anyone take me to the Hot and Trending List?!?!?!) then Depression, (I suck and the whole entire world sucks, 😭😫) and before my campaign gets closer to the end, I will descend into Apathy (who gives a f??? Certainly I don’t). Then, hopefully the people who’ve been holding out on nominating me will begin and it pushes me to an Upward Turn and finally, the seventh stage: Acceptance.
Why did I put myself through this?? No, Elle, this is the doubt speaking.
Well, on to things I can actually comprehend… yesterday, being my birthday, my family wanted to spend time with me. Why? Don’t you know I’m in the midst of a campaign? They dragged me out for a family day togetherness thing, then we ate cake. So I didn’t even get to check my page or engage on social media, and definitely didn’t get to leave bookmarks. Surprisingly, my page view stats have been at its highest, at 533 page views.
Oh, I forgot to mention, I started doing affirmations a few days ago. My affirmation is simply: I, Elle Emery, am a successful Kindle Press author!
I wonder when I need to slaughter and sacrifice the fattened calf?
By the way, the featured image was taken this morning, as I walked along the coast. I titled it “View of the north Atlantic as seen from Jeru”.
Please help me through my Doubt stage and save a cow by nominating my magically delightful book The Isle of Jeru. It’s totally legit through Amazon. They won’t pester you with ads and emails. You get the book for free if it’s chosen. 😊 Thank you,
