I'm Back!!

My last post was well over a year ago. Of course there has been quite a few changes and things going on in my life since then. I'm still in Florida and still loving it. I got a job with the county as a bus operator. I love driving the 40 foot beasts, as I call the bus.
My book has been selling great so I couldn't be happier about that. I had three books up but realized they need a ton of work so I pulled two down. I'm slowly rewriting all three books. The funny thing is I been working on these books for the past five years and it never stops. I'm still learning the craft of writing and as my writing skill grows, I realize the simple mistakes I make while writing.
With working, I been too busy to write and of course I been going through periods of writers block. The good thing is I'm starting to get itchy writer fingers so I know I'm ready to start writing again and get my books out there.

Hello everyone!

It has been awhile since I last logged in. Sometimes life gets a little hectic around here. I'm sitting here getting ready for work but I thought it would be nice to update my blog.
Last month, my books sold pretty well, for me. I sold 27 ebooks and this month looks like it's already going to be a better month. I'm at 15 books so far and it's only ten days into the month. I'm glad that every month things just get better and better.
I have also added two more books. One fantasy and the other is a book broken down into three parts. Those last two have not begun to sell yet but I'm hoping if people like the other books, then they will read my other books. I have got my first rating and it was five stars!

New Cover and writer's block

I'm still working on the middle grade but I have had writer's block for about a month. Over the last two days I spent hours putting together my new cover for the book. It was hard and very frustrating but I did it and I think it looks good. I hope this gives me the push to get it done. I have already started working some more on it. Have ADD doesn't help the matter as I keep working on several stories at one time. At least I'm writing again and that always feels good.

New Cover, Re Edited story

So I been working on my novel, Forbidden Love for almost 5 years. I've had it up on Amazon since May. I wasn't happy with my cover. I didn't think it displayed what the story is about. I also realized that the story still contained typos and the formatting was still off. Of course I was upset. It took me four days and one heck of a headache over the cover, but I finally got it together. The newly updated book and its new cover will be re released in about 24 hours!

Here comes another book promotion

I've had some mild success doing the free promotions so I thought, why not do it again? This one is going to run from this Sunday until Tuesday. I have sold a few more books and hopefully running another free promotion will get things moving along some more.
Also, I was charging .99 cents for my book and have since raised the price to 1.49. So spread the word and help me get my book out there.

Middle grade novel and updates

Good morning! I've been so busy with everyday life that I haven't written a new post in some time.
First off, let's talk about progress on my new middle grade novel. It's taking me longer to write it then I first thought. I want to make sure that I'm getting it done as best as I can. I wrote this book for my oldest son. He is my inspiration and my main character is modeled after him. My son doesn't have a lot of friends, and kids would pick on him. I always tell him how great he is. By the end of this story, the boy is a hero. I made my son a hero that all the kids like him. I have my child in mind as I write this book.
New update on my historical novel. I just sold two more books. Sometimes it will be a week before I sell one and I get discouraged but then I will sell two and it makes me giddy. I woke up this morning to find I had sold another book! It's slow going but it's going and that's all I can ask for.

New novel

I'm working on my first middle grade novel and it's really fun. It's also hard work writing from an 11 year old boy's point of view. I have never written a novel where the main character is a boy but I do have a son the same age. I think this book is going to turn out really well. So far I have written 1,059 words! My goal is 20,000 to 30,000 words.
