Weekly Catch Up

I was going to sacrifice one of my rare days off to painting the trim and base boards in my house. But since it turned out overcast, gray and slightly muggy I decided that you all would benefit from my distraction and I would share a few things I've seen this week.

The first thing is from a post from Jen Talty at Write It Forward Blog. She posted about Promoting your book in iBooks and offered up tips to make it easy for your prospective readers to jump on over to iTunes and download you latest. Thanks to her post, I now have a nifty little button to help me offer Three Truths to my readers.

See...


Isn't it lovely? I wish all the ebook stores had these nifty little gadgets. It would make my life so much easier. There is also another gadget that can be added in case you have multiple books that you want to offer in a scrolling box. Very lovely and handy! I would suggest that if you have a book to sell on the iBookstore that you go grab a gadget for yourself and put it on whate…

Modeling and Master Groups

I have very little time to actually read, so I'm usually apt to grab something on a whim that appeals enough to me to carry me through a 30 minute lunch break and maybe my 2 15-minute breaks (if I'm lucky). Anyway, the pick this week is a book I've had on my shelf for some time. It's Writing For The New Age Market by Richard Webster (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2003). For some time now I've been working on the idea of writing non-fiction. As if I didn't have enough on my plate I thought I'd add something else to the mix. But I have a desire to share some of what I've learned and to help "pay it forward" when it comes to what I've had the opportunity to experience. I'm a firm believer that we are here to learn some very important lessons during this lifetime and part of those lessons includes passing along what we know so that others can be helped. I'm by no means some know-it-all-expert intent on bringing followers to some cause. But I t…

Where Have I Been?

Life Stuff...
Where have I been? My first answer would be to tell you that I'm not really sure where I've been. It's been a crazy couple of weeks, but things are finally starting to wind down around here. I haven't given up on talking about Independent Publishing and getting the word out to those that have questions, but since I'm a mom as well as a writer there are times when the "mom" part needs to take over. This was one of those times.
Happy "late" Mother's Day to all the moms out there! We spent Mother's Day weekend making a flying trip to Pennsylvania to retrieve my daughter from her first year of college. I find it hard to believe that it's been an entire year. Parts of it went exceedingly fast and, at times, they felt as if they crawled. I've lost track of how many trips I made to Pennsylvania in the last year. I know it was a lot. But it was worth it for her to be at a great college and have wonderful first year experie…
