Taping my mouth doesn't stop my fingers...
I realize that others in my family are not likely to order an ebook and sit at the computer to read it, nor would they pay the high price for a Trade Paperback. The relatives who have read my work, read because I GAVE them copies of the actual book. Even then, I didn't get feedback, good or bad. I guess they don't realize I have to pay for copies of my own work. Or maybe they just don't care.
Still, It pains me to see all the effort that most of my family puts into Facebook without ever giving a thought to me, my videos, website or blog. You'd think I'd be used to it by now, I've never seen in print or heard any of them actually say..."Did you know that my (insert relationship) is an author?" I've certainly bragged on each of them enough, but then as I continue to tell my husband. You can't wander through life with expectations because they'll never be met. I guess I should heed my own words of wisdom.
Okay, rant over. Now I'm going to work on Hattie's Hero and escape to the old west where people expect to get shot at or maimed. :)
