A ranting small drum- Part 1

Taking a break from blatant marketing for a change.

But you see that’s important too.

First 2 days I was on the cloud 9…and now I have been falling since. It’s a slow fall though. I could be very close to the peak of Everest. Just in height not exactly close to that. Hope I am making sense, trust me I’m trying.

The point is. first 2 days I was getting orders, after that..what happened to all of you??? No kidding. Maybe not.

The ranking has been falling since but it’s still not that bad. It’s still 20, 21, 51 in 3 categories..so not that bad. But after seeing #1, it kinda mades your eyes bleed.

So if you are considering buying the book let me shamelessly request consider clicking on pre-order button now, it will help me retain the ranking.

I wasn’t going to tell anyone outside my blog except 3 close friends (all of them are extremely busy). But these falling numbers got me worried and I did something..

Something not very wise but it was a desperate attempt.

I told my 3 siblings and 2 friends, and only my 2 siblings knew about this already. i know that’s too much maths but bear with me.

And man the things I got to hear..

A friend said “oh a book?? And you don’t have time to talk to me??” Well I don’t even remember the last time she had time to talk to me!

The rest were happy and excited but didn’t know how to help. So without international calling minutes I was banging my head on a wall while trying to explain them the whole process.

i felt i was talking to dinosaurs. that too 5 at once!!

I can I only pray these Einsteins manage to place an order in my life at least!!

I have no idea how I managed to grow up between such dumb people!

But then I love them

Why do we love dump people!

I don’t know.

Moving on

I think I have a little flu but then I am looking like a starved short fat witch..with a flu!

I know starved and fat shouldn’t be sitting together in a sentence but imagine starved face over fat body as I can’t stop eating and can’t stop worrying.

Now I can related to stereotypical image of failed writers in movies

And the funniest thing. I don’t have a social media promotion strategy.

I have reddit but I don’t remember me using it.

I couldn’t really learn how to use twitter. I did post the book trailer kinda thing there but I don’t remember anyone even viewing it. So maybe I am doing something wrong.

I don’t use facebook.

Instagram makes everything small squares and only I’m allowed to be a small square nothing else. Im more of a small drum.

I made a Goodreads account through my amazon one. Just made it so don’t know what to do with that.

I think I need a plan.

Maybe I need a list. Oh I do need a list!!

Lists are the best thing ever happened to humanity.

Will go and do that.

Just reminding if you intend to buy, reconsider placing an order now. Here is the link to the book; Swinging Sanity

That’s all for now.

Have a good day!

  1. I wouldn’t count on friends and family buying it, unless they have an interest in poetry. But maybe that’s just because my friends are family are terrible, terrible people. 😦

    1. i have a big friends and family circle and a lot of them would want to bbuy, some for poetry some for me. but i still have been keeping both the sides of my life separatee and don’t plan to mix it even for sales. i already had to tell my 2 siblings they have been patiently waiting for the book.
      mine aren’t terrible but then what do you do with dumb lovely people??


  2. I have a few friends who buy my books, but the rest won’t because honestly they are jerks. I’ve supported them in whatever they do, but they can’t click and spend a buck or three, not even once? It makes you really wonder about friendship. This is my thing. Writing is my dream. They know this! So, the hell with them. Really. I’ve become very disgusted with the entire concept of “friendship” in the last few years, not just over this but the lack of support in general. Anyway. I’ll preorder your book!

    1. I have actually fought for a lot of people who weren’t even visible when shit happened in my life thats why a number of people are aware about this part of my life. my siblings and these friends are sincere and very willing to support but we reached a deadens as amazon does not cater to those regions. they want to buy but can’t I spent all day explaining them and now im sitting here with a horrible headache.
      by friends are my life. they might not be able to help me materially but honestly they didn’t let me fall apart I have been through real shit in life and they always supported me. its sad they can’t access my book. I don’t even know what to do next. its a big achievement I reached that rank without any help from my real life but this sucks they want to be part of it and they can’t. I think I wrote another rant here.

      thanks so much for pre-order. ❤️

      1. You’re welcome. People here kept saying they didn’t have a Kindle & I explained a thousand times that you can download a reader for PC or phone. It’s right on Amazon too. Just more excuses from my friends not to bother. They weren’t supportive during my depression either, though i was when they went through things. I come across as tough & competent, so people don’t think i ever need a shoulder to cry on. But i did & they turned away. Literally.

      2. There are 2 problems with Amazon and availability. Amazon covers limited regions. And Amazon kindle app is also avaiable for limited territories. So I don’t know how valid thier reasons are. I cant access a lot of books and my few family and friends want to but can’t access book and kindle app both.
        I can’t say that about my friends they have been my strength all my life but then I think it’s a rare case. I have always fought for people. Always!! And hardly got anything return, not even support from people I fought for.
        Same here! They say I’m headstrong. But it’s just a mask inside im a sensitive person I dont know how to convey that.
        People are in general mean these days. I don’t really expect anything from anyone. Nothing at all. I have been ditched at a point where I have no idea how I didnt commit suicide. I was alone having a severe panic attack with no help! I learned to not expect anything from anyone no matter how close they are to me.

      3. 💖💖💖 hugs & love. Sometimes i think ppl we will never meet in person can give us the most comfort. One of my soul sisters is across the country & has always been the most supportive ✨
