Birthday Wishes Fulfilled

What a lucky duck am I!  I have the greatest friends in the world, blogging or otherwise. I put it out there, that I wanted only REVIEWS for my books as a birthday gift. Know what? I  GOT SOME!

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you ALL!

 3 of my 9 self-published books received 2 new reviews each and they were glowing. My heart just swelled with pride, because it was as though 3 of my children were being acknowledged for their outstanding existence. What parent wouldn’t be smiling?? 

*interestingly enough… as I look at the picture below, those 3 books, just happen to be the first 3 in the pictured in the collage…

I know, from speaking with other authors, that selling books seems to be easier than asking for or even receiving reviews.  In many ways, I understand that and in many I do not.  So, I figured I’d ask.  My suggestion to other authors is this, KEEP ASKING!  There are any number of reasons why people do not leave reviews just as there are reasons why people will visit Amazon, Goodreads or even take to their blog/social media and sing the praises of a book they just read.

 To those, who took advantage of some special pricing I offered on Kindle versions of 5 of my books over the last 5 weeks, thank you so much and I hope you are pleased with your purchases. To those who, also went back to Amazon and left 5-Star Reviews or posted a 5-Star Review on your blog, thank you so much! I am honored.  

So, what’s next?  Soon, a COVER REVEAL for my latest book (s).  Oh my, did I let that slip…  One book at a time but YES, there are two more books due out before the end of this year. Just tweaking the first and getting ready to order the proof of the second.  I am not sure which is more exciting, giving birth to a new book or celebrating the reviews.  I’ll take any excuse for a party!

Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge November 2nd – The Porch

Decided to try my hand at Carrot Ranch’s Flash Fiction for this week.   Here is the link back to the challenge that runs until November 7th.  99 words no more or less about a chair on a porch…   https://carrotranch.com/2017/11/02/november-2-flash-fiction-challenge-2/

Don walked his faithful companion of 18 years across the street. He and Duke were just going to sit on the white, wicker rocker until Nancy got home from work.

Making himself comfortable, Don looked back at the unfamiliar house he had just come out of and wondered who lived there. The warm, late summer sun was going behind Nancy’s house and it was chilly. He knew she’d be home soon.

Lori turned onto her street and noticed Don and Duke on her porch.  They appeared to be napping, just like they did most days since her mom’s funeral.

 

mine your mind

Think only of things

Bringing a smile to your mind

Allowing you peace

Walk in wonderment

Others will want to know more

Just give them a smile

Quote Challenge – Day Three

 Well, I did it!  Accepted the challenge from Robbie Cheadle and delivered 3 of my favorite quotes from Author and Speaker, Dr. Wayne Dyer.  Some his wildly successful books include Your Erroneous Zones (selling over 35 million copies world wide) The Power of Intention and Wishes Fulfilled. Do yourself a favor and check out all of his books and allow yourself to be inspired to live a happier, healthier life!

“When the choice is to be right or

to be kind, always make the choice

that brings peace.” 

 Thank you, Robbie. And, thank YOU, Dr. Dyer, for everything you helped me see about how truly magnificent and magical life can be, when I change my thoughts!
