I started writing with a pen and paper those many moons ago before computers, but I rarely used a pen as fine as this one. Common writing utensils consisted of stubs of pencils my kids left scattered around the house or ball-point pens with an ad for A-One Plumbing emblazoned on them. Still, I wrote, and continue to write. If we writers were in it solely for the money, most of us would be losers. I am not a loser. It’s that heart-to-heart connection we make with people who read our words that is success.
Readers tell me that I am a success.
Who Doesn’t Like a Free Book?
There’s a Goodreads Giveaway for Desperate Season, the third book in my Seasons Mystery Series, with 100 copies given to lucky winners. If you haven’t read the book yet, this is a good way to try it for free.
On March 30 I will be speaking at the Vaughn Library at Tyler Junior College at 3:00. This event is part of a series of programs at the college to mark Woman’s History Month and it is a huge honor to be asked to speak. In my talk, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON MY WAY TO THE BOOKSTORE, I’ll share my journey as a writer, while also highlighting some of the amazing woman authors throughout history.
The event is open to the public, so if you are in the area, do stop by: Tyler Junior College, Vaughn Library at 1400 East Fifth St, Tyler, TX 75711
My short story collection, Beyond the Crack in the Sidewalk, now has it’s own landing page at the publisher’s website where you can read an excerpt and check it out on all the major online retail sites. The book is available in ENGLISH and SPANISH
Books4Readers (B4R) bookstore offers a subscription service where readers can get a box of books in whatever genre they choose, once a month. This is similar to companies that sell beauty products or novelty items to subscribers for a low monthly fee, and there’s always an element of delightful surprise when the box arrives every four weeks. Sort of like having a birthday every month where you get a present. I’m happy to be a part of the program as an author, and if you subscribe to the B4R program, one of my books could be in the box you receive next month.
What author wouldn’t be thrilled to get this note from a reader?
“I have read thousands of books in the past and thought that your books were as good and even better than any other that I have read.”
What a terrific endorsement.
Happy readers make happy writers.
