After my stroke in late 2016 I frankly lost interest in my long-time love of writing. I had just published two books, a memoir and a novella which were available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and I was devastated when the first glowing reviews were deleted by Amazon. I never took a step to promote the books or improve keywords or even look at stats. I was in the depression I read is common after a stroke.
Let me make clear that though both my strokes (the first in 2012) were not incapacitating, (thankfulness), both entailed hospital stays, multiple tests, a weakened right hand and leg, difficulty with speech and word recall, and most of all the keen recognition that the BIG ONE, statistics suggest, is coming.
Enough of the excuses. I’m now taking an online class on formatting and publishing e-books and working on a long neglected novel about a Navajo girl struggling to adjust to both her and Anglo culture.
More soon on the process and progress.
