The Ghost Who Wouldn’t Be

The Ghost who wouldn’t be…

…a conversation with Lottie Mae Roberts from The House on Persimmon Road

Lottie Mae Roberts

It is almost four years on since the House on Persimmon Road was published. Fans and readers have asked dozens of questions about Lottie, who in hind site took over the novel. So, I’ve returned to the House on Persimmon Road in late Spring, not as a writer, but as a guest.  Wearing an apron, the bib straight-pinned to her cotton house dress, and a pleasant expression, Lottie welcomed me into the house. The grand hall seemed larger than I recalled.  The old floors gleamed, the walls painted a rich cream. I asked what changes Tucker and Justine had made. Lottie opened a door on the south wall. “This was my linen room. Now it’s an indoor bathroom. Can’t even hang my herbs to dry in season. Used to have lavender, mint, sage, marigold and such.”

The Art of Being Poor–2nd Edition

What is “Poor” anyway?

Snip KrisKristine Kathryn Rusch aka Kristine Grayson who writes wonderful paranormal romances in addition to the popular blog kriswrites.com posted a telling article this week titled: Business Musings: Writer Finances Versus The Paycheck World. Kris is speaking of writers who made a mint early in our digital universe and now they don’t.  Back in 2011 and 2012, an indie author who ran a book FREE and  snagged Bookbub  could depend upon hitting bestseller stats, plus many saw royalties in the six figures. Here’s why: In 2012 a FREE download counted as a full sale/priced book when the free unit returned to priced on Amazon.  Then Amazon changed the algorithms that a free downloaded unit counted as one-tenth of a full sale/priced book. That leveled the playing field. Too, many of those books that hit the best seller lists did not measure up to what many readers consider Best Sellers.

There really is an art to being poor.

It’s funny that for most of my life I had no idea that I was poor or lived in poverty. True, I was raised poor, married poor, had a slew a kids and so stayed poor. I budgeted every nickel. Now here’s the thing. My parents came from good families. Working stock. My grandfathers owned their own businesses. All had been through the Depression. Money was tight. Next along came World War II and my uncles and dad went into the military.  We had coupons for every shortage–shoes, fabric, sugar, butter, gas. I had my first stick of gum after the War. Juicy Fruit. One pair of buckled sandals got us through summers, otherwise we went barefoot. A six ounce Coca Cola was 6 cents and a treat.

Amazon Kindle Fire–where I want my books to live…

FOUR RESOLUTIONS FOR 2017

There have been huge changes in our indie universe over the past several years.  Especially within Amazon. We’ve seen 1000’s of reviews removed, click-bait books come and go; Kindle Unlimited arrived in 2014, KENPC ~ pay by pages read in 2015. Each time there’s been a change, I tell myself stick with the basics to market my books. I have and I’ve sold books. Not in the millions, but steady on.

Bronwyn’s Box of Fosters

Our guest today on Back Porch Cyber Chatter is Bronwyn Elsmore and boy! It is a good thing my porch is virtual because Bronwyn lives a continent away in Auckland, the stunning New Zealand ‘City of Sails’.  Though she tends to wander the world, at home Bronwyn shares her writing life with one man, one special cat and a box full of fosters.  Bronwyn is not a huge coffee drinker and for the first time ever, I’m out of iced tea. So. With no further ado, let’s hear from this very talented writer.

Jackie Weger. Do subscribe to my newsletter, sent about once a month. It is always full of free and discounted books. Thank you for visiting today.

Good Morning. I’m Jackie Weger, founder of eNovel Authors at Work. I write romance novels. The heroines in my books are good girls in turmoil. The heroes  lean toward the alpha–good men all, because good men make good husbands and better fathers.  My books are not going to shake the world by its roots. I write to entertain. Sometimes I get it done, sometimes I don’t. Goes with the territory. When I don’t get the job done right, I keep trying…I don’t blame Amazon if my book doesn’t sell, or  rail at Bookbub because a book did not snag a coveted promotion slot, or sound off because readers don’t post reviews.  Which brings me to topic: Facebook and Amazon Community discussion forums. No promotion allowed.
