2. I am not rich and I won't ever likely become rich. I never think that my books will be an overnight success story, and advertising is a game for people who have the money to spend on it. I don't have it and so am discontinuing paid advertising on my books until I have more money to explore it. I was never one to waste my money, and I get almost the exact same results from my personal free promotion as I do for any paid promotion. SO unless you have money to sink into advertising, and an aggressive desire to learn about advertising, I suggest you don't pay for ads. Learn it first and only spend money you can afford to lose.
5. I write long. It's a truth I live with. (I was going to write one book. Lol. There are over twenty novel length stories along with several short reads now.) If you choose to write, know your strengths. I edit short. It is too damn hard doing it all by myself with my shoestring budget to try to edit long. I want to publish more and continue the saga, not bog down with the edits, proofreading and revisions. I want to write. I like the rest of the publishing industry, but what I love is the story. So yeah, you can read my short read miniseries on Kindle Unlimited for FREE! But you can also buy my complete miniseries on Amazon for half off the short read price because my heart is in the novel, not the short story.

Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
