New Release…on Sale… and a few other tidbits to share….
Good evening readers and fans. I am so sorry I have been neglecting you. Indie authorship is a steep learning curve and I’m still finding my way. I do want to share some news. I have created my first boxed set with my three most popular novels to date. Erin Dameron-Hill designed a sensational cover. Monday, May 04, 2015 is the official launch of Setting Up House, priced at 99¢ through Mother’s Day, May 10.
Speaking of Mothers I have held that title for more than 55+ years and I still cannot get it right. Raising tomatoes and squash
is so much easier. You prepare the garden plot, plant the veggies, harvest all Summer, put the garden to bed in the Fall and you are done. No diapers to change, no teenaged histrionics and no sitting up half the night wondering if the family car is in a ditch somewhere. Holy Smokes, you get those creatures raised, educated and out of the house, married with kids of their own, and they still nitpick at you for some perceived injustice when they twelve years old. I don’t know about you, but I was sleep-deprived until I was forty years old. And next thing, they started moving back home. Huh? Now, all are doing just fine…but get this: They are rewriting their history… Every single one pretending they wore haloes. To hear them talk the dang things were made out of platinum because they were soooo well-behaved.
Here is what I am doing on Mother’s Day…
I am getting up at the crack dawn and heading out to a tiny fish camp called Indianola. Indianola was once a thriving Texas community, but a hurricane swept the entire village into the bay. All that is left is a few stilt houses and the fish camp. I don’t fish. I sit on the covered pier in the shade, soak up the the fresh air and read–and by dusk and the moon rising, all is right with my world.
I must be hung up on motherhood and trying to get it right because most of my books have protagonists who are mothers having to cope with a crises, wishing to be a mother, and haven’t a clue what they are getting into. By-the-by, Phoebe Hawley of Finding Home fame is now in an audiobook. As well as is Anna Nesmith in No Perfect Secret. ACX, a division of Amazon has distributed it across all venues. Do you subscribe to Choosy Bookworm? If not do, so you won’t miss this offer: A few of us in eNovel Authors at Work are handing out our audible books free in a Listen and Review program June 30th via Choosy. You can also download Audible books for FREE with a one month FREE subscription to ACX. Pretty much ala a subscription service which gives you an inventory of 150,000 audio books.
Last thing. No Perfect Destiny is in a boxed set with eleven other authors. All best selling authors, except me. I dragged up the rear. Multi-author boxed sets have a shelf life, and Hearts & Kisses wraps on May 30th. The set is priced at 99¢, so you might want to get your copy before it fades into cyberspace. As usual, all of my books are enrolled in Amazon KDP, which means you can borrow and read for free.
The dryer is beeping. I have to go fold clothes. I despise dryers. If you don’t get to the clothes while they are warm, you end up with a mass of wrinkles and laboring over an ironing board. I love clothes lines. Hang out a wet wash, air-dry, fold as you take them off the line at your own convenience. Wonderful. Now, I’m told having a clothesline in the backyard of nice area is tacky. Who are these people?
Y’all take care. Have nice week. Hope the weather holds. We’re having sunny days and cool nights. Just perfect. Shoot! I spoke too soon. Some fool just ran over my mailbox. I guess I can recycle the thing into planter for petunias. Second time this year. Golly, some days just show up with no luck and bad luck. But hey! No mailbox, no bills. Works for me.
