Debut of Family Myths Amazing Success

The debut of Family Myths; Vol. 3 of the Augustus Family saga has been amazing. I want to thank each and every one of you who bought the book, told your friends, shared a post, or have shown up at a book signing.  Without readers an author is just a crazy person, scribbling in the night.

A special thanks to all the ladies in the Facebook Get Organized Challenge Group sponsored by Totally Tiffany. After Tiffany’s post about the series, you pushed my sales to number one on AMAZON in  my genre, for a lovely, heady, two hour window.  I was very excited, Thank YOU!

Family Myths debuted on August 26, 2017, at the first ever San Diego Festival of Books. 10,000 readers turned out to celebrate books and while 10,000 didn’t all buy my books, I sold out of everything I had available. That’s probably enough bragging.

There are a few special events coming up soon and I’d love to meet any of you who are in the area.

September 16, 2017 – 1 PM-3 PM – I’ll be signing books at the Athenaeum Museum of Music and Arts Book Sale, 1008 Wall St, La Jolla, CA 92037

September 30, 2017 – 2:30 PM-5:30 PM – teaching a dialogue writing class at Writer’s Ink, Liberty Station

Short Story My Holiday Gift for You

Hi All – As I get ready to leave for an exciting holiday trip to Singapore, I’ve uploaded a new short story to Amazon. Love Is In The Baking is  a poignant look at love, loss, memories, and family. My new story will be free December 21, 2015 through December 25, 2016.

If you don’t have a Kindle remember that you can read this story or any Kindle book by downloading the free Kindle app for your computer and/or any smart phone.

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

If you enjoy this story, please. come back and leave a review.

New Online Book Store Needs Reviews

I was recently approached by a new bookstore, PJ Boxx.  They are both a brick and mortar store in Ft Meyers Florida and an online store.  They are specializing in self published and small distribution books.  I placed copies of both FAMILY LIES and  FAMILY MATTERS with them.

If you have read both or either my books please take a minute and write review.  You don’t need to purchase another copy.   PJ Boxx sells only the paperback copies but you can still buy either book in an e-book format from AMAZON, Barnes and Noble and iBook.

And, yes, before you ask….Book Three FAMILY MYTHS is finally in the editing process so – fingers crossed – it should be out soon.  Thanks for caring.

BookDaily Promotion

This has been an exciting and a very stressful week all at the same time.  If you are a BookDaily subscriber you may have seen that my book FAMILY MATTERS was promoted.  (I still haven’t seen the email that went out.) It was exciting because so many of you downloaded the book but stressful because they were supposed to be promoting FAMILY LIES.  If you downloaded Book 2 FAMILY MATTERS but would like to read Book 1 FAMILY LIES before you read book 2 I think it will be promoted for a few days next week. I’m not sure because I can get no response from the BookDaily people!  Anyway, thanks again to those of you who are reading.  Please leave me a review on Amazon, it really is fun for me to know what you are thinking.  If you’d like to see any of my Amazon books visit my Author Page or search Amazon for my books by name or author name.  FAMILY LIES, FAMILY MATTERS, SUBTLE DIFFERENCES

Short Story – Subtle Differences

OMG!  I haven’t done a post in so long I may have forgotten how to do one.  This is just a head’s up to all that I put a short story up on Amazon and if you’d like to read it  I’d love you to do so and please leave a review.

I wrote this while thinking about the way some of us make decisions in our lives.  Don’t want to  write a spoiler here so I won’t say anything else.  It should be free if you’ve purchased either book 1 or 2 of the Augustus Family Trilogy on Amazon – but it’s only 99 cents otherwise.  By the way do you know that you don’t have to have a Kindle to read Kindle content – just down load their free reading app.
