I don’t really know what to write today. I feel sad. I don’t know how to promote my book.
I just want to write and produce my books and I know how to talk about them but don’t know how to take it further than that.
Or I don’t have the will to. I’ve made the YouTube vids before. I’ve tried the podcast. Recently I watched a video about writing emails to journalists with an angle. But you have to a) find these journalists and b) find them on twitter to contact them.
I don’t want to do that.
The thing is I have just 10 days left till the course I’m teaching finishes and I’m just hanging in there. After that I’m just a writer and I don’t know how that’s going to go but I can’t bare to do anything else.
I watched a video from Gabor Mate of ‘When the Body says No’ and have been really following my splenic intuition in every decision I make.
So here I am in the middle. Messy. Wondering. Clueless.
Today I wrote a description of Wonderlust that I liked so I’m going to share it with you.
My novel, Wonderlust, is set in 2007 and is about a travel agent from Perth who goes to Switzerland on a cultural adventure, believing in perfection but finding life in the imperfection. It’s about writing and the switch from consumer to creator, body obsession, a Russian artist, an Irish body-builder, a Swiss design draftsman and reality TV.
It’s a coming-of-age story of an Australian woman, aged 26, and I was inspired by Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer. Cafes. Walking. Talking. Loneliness.
Read the sample here: Wonderlust on Amazon.
The paperback & digital are available from here or check in the country-specific sites: www.amazon.com/author/mireilleparker
So that’s it. Just to say I don’t know what I’m doing and maybe I should just stop writing this but I like it and hopefully you do too. Maybe not.
Wishing you well wild heart..
Lots of love,
