Very Annoyed…

Let me start  by asking this question… have you ever had so many things piling, that without a doubt, at some point, the straw that broke the camel’s back will eventually finds its way to you? You know it’s going to land there at some point but you don’t know when? Well… I’ll keep tapping on those letters on my laptop and see if you will realize what brought me to this desert that lacks the oasis.

At the moment I am having a short vacation. Here I find myself having none of the time I need to do the things I like the most; writing, reading, jogging and many other activities that one should be doing on his/her vacation. First thing on my list is my publishing experience for my second book(or technically third since I’ve released a spinoff from my series for free on Smashwords and Scribd, too). My novel, Iblis, or also known as Devilish, is at halt at the moment, and here’s why… I discovered that I only get almost 13% from my sales for my novel online… now I know  I am not in it for the money… I am in it to make people’s jaws drop… but honestly… 13% out of the whole is something I would feel offended by, because taking four years of my life to create book 1 & 2 is something I should take more credit for… when I agreed to the 50% for my e-book I also thought it was unfair… 50% is like saying you did half of my job… still, if it helps to get my words out and on people’s hands to enjoy I won’t mind it… but 13%… well… sorry but that’s too much for me to handle.

So this time I decided to do it with the help of an agent. I got a respond and sent with my fingers crossed a three sample chapters from my novel Iblis.

The other thing I am being annoyed by is the fact that I have no time to write and read because I am helping someone, who I can’t say no to, to write his novel… It is taking so much time from me and I can’t do it with all the kids running around me… yes, kids are staying at our home because, apparently, both my brother and sister decided to take a time away from them and leave for their own vacations.

So yes… I feel very annoyed… and at some point, I’m going to explode… I know it’s coming, but I don’t know when… all I need to do is find something to aim at… my punching bag was sold because… well no one uses it… my young brother (yes… he’s an object to lash at to me) did surgery so that’s a no too, but he must get a note from his doctor first, so there’s some hope. There’s always sports………………. sorry for stopping briefly… I needed to catch my breath, I really need to stretch before I blog.

Well… I don’t know… maybe I should walk it out? In the mean time, I’ll wait to see how it will go with the agent hunt… and as for my reading… I can always get that going before I sleep.

Here is my reading agenda for the coming months so far:




Not in that order in particular… I’ll start with what my mood decides to strike first… as you can see… I’m kind of moody today.

Cheers everyone.

      Actually I feel better now. I believe that this is an opportunity in disguise.

      Thanks for your kind wishes. 🙂

      Oh and one more thing… The book will come out locally, but it will take time till it’s out to be bought through B&N and Amazon… So yeah.
      By the way, really glad for you… Looks like Daughter of Isis is positively appraised 😉

      • Kelsey Ketch · January 8, 2014

        Not a worry. I understand. And keep me in the loop! I want to purchase the moment it’s available. 😉 Is it listed on Goodreads yet?

        I hope you enjoy Daughter of Isis as well!

    Hi Amin, wow! You really were having a rough time. Still time has gone by since this post and it seems all is well in your world again. Running is good, punching bags? Hmm okay, I guess! Lol Kids? Well, say no more! Hugs for the New Year and all the best for this book. Who wants half of anything when you did all the work yourself. Nite, Paula xx
