Closing My Etsy Store

Hello Lovelies!

First, many thanks to all who have supported me and all of my art. Many people downloaded my Amazon/kindle books over the Thanksgiving Holidays and I can’t wait to see the reviews!

Unfortunately, I have been sick for most of November. I continue to make changes for a healthier lifestyle including my small businesses, including Etsy.

Right now my Etsy store is closed.

Etsy was a God send at first. I decided to cut my own website to join. Sales were always kind of spotty, but I could always see how many views were in the store. At one point I was at over 19,000 views. I have 12 five star ratings and nothing less than five stars.

Changes come to every selling format, social media, etc. and this year was some doozies. One of which was akin to Facebook killing organic reach. They also hired a former CEO that ran EBay, starting ramming sales and free shipping down the sellers throats.

For true artisans and craft persons, these policies forces creators to undersell their work. I can’t afford to do that any longer.

IF YOU READ ONLY ONE PART OF THIS POST, READ THIS-I will be permanently closing my Etsy store by sometime in the early months of next year unless I sell out of items sooner.

Again the store is closed now, but I will reopen the store in a week or two and there will be A MASSIVE PERMANENT SALE on xmas items. Other items will be drastically reduced.

My most one of a kind items will be slightly marked down, however, they will move to my new online store, which will be either independently owned or on amazon. I have a small test group of items on the DePop app.

I have been satisfied for the most part as an amazon/kindle author. It makes sense to have all my items under one umbrella. To see my books, the link is here:

amazon.com/author/victorial.szulc

If you have Kindle Unlimited, certain pieces of mine are ALWAYS FREE. My two new latest pieces on Amazon/kindle:

“I Died Here”, The Vampire’s Little Black Book Series, V.11:

“The Kicho”, The Dolls of Society Series, v.1

Both are in amazon’s “Pen to Publish 2018” competition, so I am especially grateful for your support!

Again, this was not an easy decision to make, but as the market changes, so must I.

I continue to contribute to Steampunk Journal. My latest pieces for the Journal are here:

Free Kindle Downloads This Weekend Including “The Kicho”

Hello Lovelies!

I’m continuing to celebrate the kickoff of the holiday season with the release of two new shorts for Amazon/Kindle, “The Kicho”, a new steampunk series, and “I Died Here”, v.11 of the Vampire’s Little Black Book Series. Both are in amazon’s “Pen to Publish 2018” competition.

IF YOU READ ANY PART OF THIS BLOG, READ THIS- to get the FREE downloads, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A KINDLE, you must download the kindle app from your App Store of Google, Apple, etc. It should be able to be downloaded to any modern e-device, phone, tablet, laptop, etc. IT IS A FREE APP.

I also had one glitch with two of the shorts, so “The Kicho” and “Can You Hear My Heart Beating?” will be FREE as of Saturday.

So then ALL of my digital titles on amazon/kindle are FREE from Black Friday to Cyber Monday! My author page link is here:

amazon.com/author/victorial.szulc

If you have Kindle Unlimited, certain pieces of mine are ALWAYS free.

Please feel free to share, download, and critique/review!

Here are the links to the two new pieces:

“I Died Here”, The Vampire’s Little Black Book Series, V.11:

“The Kicho”, The Dolls of Society Series, v.1

So for this blog, what is “The Kicho”? Kicho is Japanese for precious or valuable. In this new steampunk series, you’ll meet a new heroes, and learn about their dolls. It is a Gothic Victorian tale of how one young girl’s trials can lead to a new era.

Last spring, I was invited to the St. Louis Ball Jointed Doll Convention to speak about their theme of Steampunk. I was thrilled to learn more about dolls and culture. I dug a little deeper and was inspired by one of my nieces to read about Japanese anime and doll culture.

I originally was going to submit “The Kicho” as a super short story for a contest, but decided to shelve it for a while until a new contest, through Amazon became available. I consulted with member of the STLBJD community and one of them, Jennifer Campbell, agreed to edit.

The result is the beginnings of a new series which I hope you will enjoy!

Goodbye Stan Lee,My Voice, and Updates

Hello Lovelies,

The last couple of weeks have tried my patience. I had a cold that went to an intestinal bug and finally a sinus infection and laryngitis. More on this in a moment..

To make things worse, the US suffered a mass shooting in California, and a fire that broke out near by ended up spreading for miles and killing over 60 people with many missing. And for those who love comics, science fiction, and fantasy, we lost Stan Lee.

Stan was a man who gave us dreams. The hope that there is good and everyday heroes among us. That we could be better. That we could different and be ourselves. We could be heroes.

Stan inspired my writing. The worlds and super heroes he created for Marvel have made me want to create my own Marvel-like Universe for my Steampunk and vampire characters. Many of these characters are coming to fruition in the next few days (more on that too further down).

Here are some of my favorite pieces and pics I’ve seen online:

My favorite line from his many cameos has to be in Spider-Man with Toby McGuire, “You know, I guess one person can make a difference.”

Rest In Peace Stan Lee-Excelsior!

So back to the illness. I hate not having a voice. And I truly believe that part of it comes from not speaking up, literally not be able to say what I want to. I’ve blogged about this before and I can’t believe it’s happened again. But at least I see that it has happened, and next time? I won’t mince my words because the aftermath to my health has been devastating.

Right now I’m at a whisper. A couple of weeks ago I got a little cold. The stomach thing was probably coming. I’ve managed to avoid people dropping like flies around me. I went to work at one of my side jobs (not my great full time current employer) the next day even though I wasn’t 100%.

Now, I’m not going to disclose the full details, but in a nutshell, the minute I got out of my car I was yelled at. It continued after I got inside the shop. I spoke up briefly but was immediately rebuffed with a tirade that I instantly felt in my gut. I had defense, I had proof, but in this moment of insanity from a person I knew that was grieving and had personal issues, I let it slide. And boy was it ever ‘my bad’.

This ranting was the main reason that this side job went, well, to the side. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I literally lost my voice a few days later because I let my words get taken from me. I had sinus issues sneak back in with that nasty drainage that causes one to hack up a lung and rough up the vocal cords in the process. I’ve done every home remedy I know and the doc has already told me what I’ve known all along, no talking for 3-4 days.

I’m frustrated as hell. I chat like crows over a garbage dump. And I’ve now missed four days of work at a time when I really need the money and have the most opportunity to make money during the holidays. So not sticking up for myself has cost me health, time, and money. It won’t happen again, I assure you. Because as soon as I can replace that side with something else, I’m gone. Lesson learned.

The bright side? I’ve been writing and prepping for the onslaught of Christmas from the couch (when I wasn’t sleeping on it). There is nothing like anger to make you change. I’ve got 5-6 pieces coming out by the end of 2019. Fire up those kindles and get those bookmarks OUT:

Will the vampire is back! “I Died Here” is on amazon/kindle as of today!

Yes, I just embarrassingly realized that the 11th story was promised for late 2014-15. I did get “The First Ten Bites” compiled last year in 2017. I also wrote 2 pieces for competition that didn’t win, however their loss and your gain, because The Kochi and A Dream of Emerald Skies are both coming very soon. And yes Kate Church is returning in an epic adventure so big that your fingers will burn while turning pages.

The link for “I Died Here”:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KNMBPG6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542605276&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=i+died+here%2C+victoria+l.+Szulc&dpPl=1&dpID=51i6U84JAYL&ref=plSrch

Remember if you have Kindle Unlimited it is FREE. It will also be free to download from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Please download, read, share and review. Because yes, it is a contest!

I thank you all for the support.

Witches Night Out-went out with a friend to a ladies only event and had a blast. I did a darker Wicked Witch or Elphaba. A few pics:

The annual CWE (Central West End) Halloween bash was one of the best in years. Again, a few photos:

On Halloween proper, Haunted STL Tours had a great series of tours at the historic Old Courthouse in St. Louis. I manned the Boutique and did a live read from “Revenge and Machinery” on Facebook. If you missed it, you can watch it here:

https://www.facebook.com/MySteampunkProject/videos/2370218253263907/
