Happily Ever After–Just for Today

Jackie Weger

For the first time in my life this week I shopped online for something other than a book.  I saw a pair of fab shoes on a Bingo pal last week and she told me she  got  them on Amazon.  I’m a writer.  I live on Amazon, but it never occurred to me to shop for clothes, or jewelry or shoes.  Now it does.   I’ve had a good week.  Actually, I’ve had a good month thus far. I got a nice royalty check, I won two back-to-back jackpots at Bingo, everybody I know is alive and well and my latest book is on my editor’s desk getting its last soft edit and final proof. Here’s the snag. My writing cave needs a good cleaning. My desk is a wreck. But I’m superstitious. I don’t clean it or move a single piece of paper or note or list of words or character outlines or bits of  dialogue or my dictionaries until the finished book is published.  So! I need something else to clean.

Unleashed July 18, 2014 on all indie authors published in KDP Select on Amazon and Amazon readers, too,  Kindle Unlimited is a new subscription service. $9.99 a month. Readers can download unlimited titles for $9.99 as opposed to Amazon Prime that allows only a single title borrow per month. Critical to authors–in order to get paid a portion of the global fund $ set aside in KOLL, a reader must read at least 10% of the book.  Subscribers to  Amazon Prime need only to ‘borrow’ the title for the author to get a royalty. No reading required. Indie authors across the internet and in blogs and forums are looking askance at Kindle Unlimited and wondering what the heck it means. Asking how they’ll get paid for the download–if ever.

Good Books Make Great Christmas Gifts

 

Flaps Down (The Reluctant Hero)

Flaps Down

Click to buy on Amazon…read free on Amazon Prime or download a sample.

Parnell Stillman, ace pilot is man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way.  He has the ability to fly through anything except solid mountain.  He lives alone because people are not to be trusted, especially women. Flying is his high road until one sleet-filled morning–it isn’t. Mischance forces his plane down in a frozen wilderness. He can survive, but his live cargo is another matter—an annoying social worker and five orphans—the most irksome freight he’s ever hauled in his life.

A Hallelujah! Moment in a Writer’s Life

 

Or sometimes it can just be the way the mop flops…

 

Franklin E. WalesThere is an empyreal quality in life called happenstance. Some call it kismet. Nietzsche called it amor fati.  I’m from the South. If something awful happens and we can’t do anything about it, we just say, ‘that’s the way the mop flops.’ If something good happens, we say, ‘Praise the Lord’ or ‘Hallelujah!’
