Monday Ramblings…

Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day! As for me, yep. It was amazing. Being a mother is such a fantastic voyage. I actually think it prepares you to be a writer in some ways.

As for my writing, I got a long way into my latest manuscript yesterday while sitting on my patio. Sometimes I can write with a clearer head just sitting in nature, letting the worries of the world slip away and the words on the page take over. When I completely detach myself from everything, my writing goes quickly.

Here’s a reminder to check out my new website, www.freshfromthebook.com. Thanks to all of you that have passed it on to your social media and subscribed. I can’t wait to start advertising with the requests that I’ve received. That’s the goal, getting your book out there to the public. The only way you’ll get in front of your audience is to put it out there for them to find.

Here’s to good writing and may God Bless You…

Thursday Promotions

Mother's Day Sale

Good Thursday morning! Today I’m starting my Mother’s Day Sale, but of course, Amazon is on the ball and the sale prices started yesterday… In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m offering three of my books for .99 each. As you’ll notice, two are my newest books released and one is older. A Light Upon My Heart will be on http://faithfulreads.com/ today.

I’ve had authors ask me why I run sales every once in a while. My answer is simple, it’s like simple marketing. When you run a book that’s usually $2.99 or more, down to .99, people take notice. It’s the same thing when you make the first book in a series free. If they like that one, you have a good shot at selling the rest of the series. I’m seeing great results with Ridge staying free. The rest of the books are selling great, so it works.

Talking about selling books, my announcement is coming tomorrow! Just get your sharing and liking fingers ready. I’ll need all the help I can get. The key to getting it out there is all of my wonderful friends here and on all my social media outlets. So keep watching for the announcement. It’s been so hard to sit on this all week as the kinks are ironed out.

As always, good writing and may God Bless You…

Spring Evening on the deck…

It’s that wonderful time of year when the evening is just simply gorgeous and it’s not too hot to sit out. The mosquito’s haven’t totally moved in, but they’re trying their best. There’s a light breeze blowing and the birds are chirping. It’s a piece of Heaven tonight.

Of course I’m sitting with my laptop working on Chase. Yep, I said Chase. Oakley is now in the hands of my editor and I’m two chapter into Chase’s story. This one has been pulling at me for some time, but I had to get Oakley’s story finished first. Chase is full of life and humor, but he has a soft side that not many people see. His story will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. I can’t wait to have it ready for my faithful fans.

I’ve been asked by many what my Mother’s Day plans are, well it’s easy. I have Church in the morning then meeting my brother and his family lunch. No way am I cooking tomorrow. Then it’s back home to do anything that hits my fancy. But if you know me and many of you may have already guessed, I’ll be writing. If the weather is nice, I might just sit out here on the deck tomorrow afternoon and write.

Hopefully now that Oakley is finished and Chase is on a good start, I’ll be able to get back to my regular blogging schedule. I’ve missed it so much and the interaction with all my cyber friends.

If I don’t get to it tomorrow, hope all of you have a wonderful and restful Mother’s Day!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

This is to all the Mother’s out there. Hope you have a wonderful day today as you deserve it. My son was quick to hug me this morning and tell me thank you. Of course it brought on the tears. Then at Church our wonderful Pastor talked about Mother’s and their role in our lives. It was quite eye opening and honest. My hubby put his arm around me and squeezed my shoulder. Yep, I shed a tear or two. Bet you knew that already 🙂

It’s been a great day so far. My family met at a restaurant with a buffet and we ate until we were miserable then we went back to my mom’s to eat dessert. How you may ask? Well it’s Mother’s Day and I’m going to enjoy it. 

My son asked what I was going to do on this beautiful Mother’s Day and I told him maybe a nap and then work on one of my manuscripts. Also I’m going to admire the beautiful pot of flowers my hubby and son gave me. I picked them out, but it’s the thought that counts.

If you’re mother is still living then make sure if you don’t see her today at least call her because you wouldn’t be here without her. She wiped your nose, changed your diapers, put bandaids on your cuts and nursed you when you were sick. She deserves some respect and show of love. SO if you haven’t called her or been to visit shame on you. It only takes a moment out of your busy schedule to make a call and just say ‘Mom I love you and thank you for everything.” It’s real simple. So just do it.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY…

As always good writing and May God Bless you…
