Christmas is Just Around the Corner!

Christmas is just around the corner.  I’ve got the tree up, the nativity scene is out, shopping is about half done, and I’m going to work in a couple hours to pay for it all!

Been a while since I’ve posted anything.  October was a fantastic month for me.  And by big, I mean I cleared enough to pay my electric bill!  That might sound like small potatoes, but for an indie writer that is a great success.  That 59 cents per book take a while to add up, and while I’m probably not going to get rich writing, I am thrilled to have some positive numbers.

I’ve heard from quite a few people who attended my book signing or who purchased the books around that same time, and they all seem to enjoy my books.  I’ve have several asking me when the next one is coming out – which to me is the highest praise.  I’m so pleased that readers enjoy my tales!  Tell your friends about me!

I’ve started a shop on Etsy to try to get my name out and maybe pick up a few sales.  That’s a work in progress and right now it looks pretty generic.  I’ll have to play around with it to make it look more appealing.

If I don’t post anything before, I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas.  May you never be too old to watch the skies on Christmas Eve.

My First Book Signing is Saturday!

My first book signing is this Saturday, October 27th at The Pelican Coffee House in Bucyrus Ohio from 9:30am until 12pm.  I am excited, I am nervous, I am terrified that my mother will be the only person to show up!  But no matter what, it’s a step in the right direction to getting my name out there.

For those who don’t know, an indie writer puts on a lot of hats.  Publisher, editor, social media expert, marketer, literary agent, designer, oh, and let’s not forget, the writer. If I stumble along the way, I hope my readers forgive me.  I’ve got a lot to learn in this world, but if I don’t at least try, I’ll never know what is successful and what isn’t.
