So, Now I’m Famous(er)

I am overwhelmed by the love and support I have received from you, my wonderful readers and friends. You shared my post about my new book over 20 times, and I have received an enormous amount of encouragement from you in my comments and on my Facebook feed. Thank you!

I have to say, I’m having the time of my life. This is a dream come true for me. It is made possible by my friend and writing mentor, Rob Swanson, who is the creator of Prevail Press, the micropublishing company that has walked me through the entire project to create this beautiful book (illustrated by Anna Kester). Rob has a vision to enable good writers to publish good books. He knows the challenges of traditional publishing and the time involved in that pursuit and realizes that it won’t work for everyone – actually it won’t work for most of us. I love his business plan. You can check it out here and see what is going on in these beginning stages of Prevail Press, as well as meet their other authors.

In addition to all of this, I am now a YouTube star! I know what you’re thinking – it was just a matter of time. Please check out my video explaining why I wrote the book. Filming it was one of the weirdest things I’ve ever done, but you have to give the public what they want!

We have Winners!

I had the hare-brained idea to get my dad’s Bunny Rabbit out of retirement to select the names of the two people who have won a copy of my book. He was so excited, he spent all afternoon at the hare dresser.

(When you read my book, ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE MAGIC, this will make more sense to you, if you can’t figure it out already.)

Bunny Rabbit was always a wild and crazy guy. He’s a little unconventional. He usually made a huge mess when he would assist my dad with his magic act. He is soft-spoken (he does have a hare lip), but his heart is in the right place.

One at a time, Bunny Rabbit!

I put all the entry names in his hat and asked Bunny Rabbit to choose one and then another. I don’t think he entirely understood me as he immediately started throwing things around. So, I adjusted my plan accordingly and decided the last two names in the hat would be my winners.

Congratulations to Melodye Jones and Kim Sutter. You are the winners! I will contact you soon about getting a book to you.

Congratulations, Kim and Melodye!

Remember, Always Look for the Magic is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/097932517X.

 

THE BIG REVEAL

Once upon a time a woman began writing down the stories her father told about growing up in Baltimore during The Great Depression. Knowing that one day her father would not be around to share them, she wanted to make sure that they weren’t lost for her children and grandchildren. She had always been entertained by the antics that seemed to be an everyday part of his younger life, and she loved the way his eyes would twinkle when he told those stories.

As she began to write down those stories, they took on a life of their own and became a work of fiction – my work of fiction. Yep – I’m the woman!

So, here’s the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m excited to tell you that my new novel, ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE MAGIC, is now available on Amazon, both in print and digital formats!


Here’s the link where you can order it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/097932517X

This is a light-hearted book, full of warmth and laughter, that will be enjoyed by people from 8 to 88.

I hope you will click on over there and order a few dozen for yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your neighbors, and your neighbors’ children.

Also, after you read it would you kindly give me a review on Amazon? That would be so helpful. Thank you!
