Count the little things when it comes to your brand. For a lot of little things can add up to a whole lot of WOOHOO!
I think me staying home in quarantine has done wonders for my brand even though I have yet to start writing. During the time I have stayed home volume one of my Jasper, Amazon parrot series, “Jasper, Amazon Parrot: A Raiforest Adventure”, had placed in the top 100 for Kindle in the UK in two categories. This same book was translated into Spanish.
I was flying pretty high than my head blew up. It placed in the top 100 for Kindle in the US for one category and was only three off from placing in two categories.
What the heck? These are events that happen to the high rising authors that everyone knows. The authors who have movies made out of their books.
Yet, Jasper and I was up there. But things don’t last as it was a short ride in the US. The ride in the UK was a tad longer.
This is just the more reason to take screen shots of any thing that is positive for your brand. I have a folder of screen shops of the accomplishments that has happened.
You got to enjoy the little moments of joy when it comes to your job regardless if they are one big wow to a bunch of little wows.
How this all happened I have no clue. But it has gotten me even more excited for my series, my brand and my writings. People out there are buying my books, leaving great reviews and are appreciating what I do. That deserves in its own right for me to pause, breath deeply and think, “Damn girl. You got something here.”
Take a few minutes and ponder. And if by chance it is something online take a screen shot or photo of it. You earned it. Your brand earned it. At least I think so.
Since I wrote this I have written three days in a row on volume four to my Jasper, Amazon parrot series. I have added 3500 words.
