I had no idea when I started writing over a decade ago that I would have to wear so many hats: publicist, manager, graphic designer. I’ve even, lately, had to try my hand at computer programmer. Oh the days I spent trying to figure out how to make the Paypal “buy now” buttons I created work on my website/blog. Nothing I did made the stupid links work. On the verge of pulling my hair out, I stumbled onto a blogger who had shared my same problem. According to them, the buttons only worked when they were inserted in html format.
Well that’s just perfect! I don’t know how to write html anything!
Good thing I scrolled down to the end. The sweet blogger had written out the html needed with “Your paypal button here” where it needed to be inserted. I should have thanked them, but when I copied the html I also somehow managed to close the window, and haven’t been able to find the article since.
The only thing I know for certain—the path for authors is a very difficult one. I’m thankful for those who have gone before and have been willing to share their knowledge and experience with me. I wouldn’t be where I am without them.
And on a side note: Rory’s Choice: Thorns of Revenge came out yesterday. You’d do this hardworking author a solid by purchasing a copy at amazon.com. I’m promise the third and final book in the Rory’s Choice series won’t disappoint.
