Getting personal

Trying to get inspired to write anything has been really hard.  I feel like I have too much on my plate right now and to be completely honest, I'm starting to get unmotivated.  I want people to read my books and tell me what they think.  Yes, I've had some of my friends write reviews but really, I only have 7 for Cutting Through and only 3 for Back To Me (all from the same people).  I poured my heart into Cutting Through.  Yes, the story was extremely personal to me.  I know I said it wasn't my story, because it isn't, but so much of it I went through myself.  With Back To Me, it was different.  I hadn't really experience any of it, maybe just one part, but I still poured myself into it.  It might not have been personal, but it was still emotional.  Having only a handful of people reading them has really bummed me out lately.  I've said it before and I've meant it every time, I don't care about the money.  I just want people to read my books and feel the things I did when I wrote them.  I want people to be responsive.  I want to thank the people who have reached out to me and told me what they thought and the people who have left reviews.  I want to know what people think.  Good and bad.  I know there are errors in my books, I don't have the best grammar and punctuation and all that shit.  I don't need to hear about that because I already know, trust me!  What I want to know is if you enjoyed the story?  Did you like the characters?  What was your favorite part?  What did you hate about it?  I would love to have more people write reviews on Amazon and Goodreads!  Make them anonymous if you don't want me to know it's yours!
