    Paying it Forward

    So, I tried to think of what I could do to help out other new authors, and I’ve decided to pay it forward with a review, because that’s something most authors want. Feedback from readers. I’ve already picked out the first book, and I’m reading it now. But not just one book, I’ve decided to concentrate on indie authors from a variety of genres. I may (or may not) list the reviews here, but in any event, I hope to help someone else’s career get running 🙂

    Next week I’m going to put up more excerpts!

    Okay, I know some readers may be thinking “what’s the big deal?”

    Well, I’m chronicling the highs and lows of the behind the scenes with this book, and hopefully my experience can help anyone else who may want to self-publish. And since I don’t know how long this is gonna last, I plan on enjoying it while I can. Just to put things into perspective, I have to take the dog out and mow my lawn now 🙂

    Thanks to all of you for reading the excerpt of HEAVEN!


    The ebook will be available later today.


    As the writer (and co-writer on some of the YA ebooks) and also co-publisher, when something doesn’t read quite right, or a missed typo gets spotted, a joint decision is made whether or not to halt publication. We decided (my daughter and I) to do another edit before releasing the full ebook of HEAVEN this weekend.

    My sincere apologies, because sales of the 11 chapter excerpt have been steadily rising, and we are thrilled. Thank you all so much!

    The full ebook of Heaven will be out this weekend, and we truly hope the love story between Heaven and Josh, and their bond with Myst, will become a fan favorite.

    HEAVEN will be up this week, although I may have to change the date again, this time to the 18th  the 19th.

    I got a creative burst just before publishing it, so I decided to pull the ebook and include the new info. My marketing/promo for the full novel will be an eleven chapter, two day free download.
