UnknownAlthough every day is a day to be thankful, this is Thanksgiving week for those of us who live in the States.  It isn’t as busy for me as it once was when we had the holiday dinner at our house and I spent the days leading up to it grocery shopping and cooking.  All around a full work schedule.  I remember one year when I had just started on the pies (around six in the evening) and all of a sudden I didn’t have any water.  We did have this amazing guy who had put in the well and he came right out.  He fixed the pump, thank heavens it wasn’t the well, though he worked until almost eleven o’clock.  He told us his wife was home baking pies for the homeless shelter.  What an exceptional family. Yes, I stayed up late, but how can you not remember and be thankful for people like these.

I took some time off from writing and I probably won’t be turning out as many books in the future. I love writing though, so I doubt that I’ll ever not have a story in progress.  What I don’t love is promoting and if you want to sell books you have to do it.  So, with the holidays here, and not promoting The Season Of Love last year, I decided to do a little research and found BookBub.  I love it. For one thing, it is as much a service to the reader as the author. Just my kind of marketing as reading is a big part of my life. And, sharing an author I’ve just found or a book I haven’t been able to put down isn’t ‘Marketing’ it’s forming a community to share the experience of a good story.

BookBub sends me out a list of ebook bargains every day.  Some are free. I had just picked up ‘Sold On Monday’ in paperback for $9.99 and it was on the list for  $2.99.  By the way, it is a really good story.   The bargains don’t last long I’ve gone in like a week later and the book was up to regular price but that isn’t a problem for me.  If you would like to join BookBub  click here. 

I made an author page and would love to have you follow me.  It’s a great place to share reading experiences.

Until next time, Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and happy reading.

I know those of you who follow this blog are both writers and readers and I try to do posts that speak to both. However this one is for authors or those who might be entertaining the idea of writing.

ALLi-LogoIndie Author Fringe is an online workshop put on by the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLI). They are putting on the next event this coming Saturday, June 3. It starts at 10:00am Eastern time. But the good thing about Fringe is that you can view the workshop sessions anytime. And you can pick which ones you want to do. I usually try to do one session a day sometimes skipping a day.

There is a wealth of information in the Fringe sessions and on the ALLI website itself. I can’t say enough about the value to Indie authors this group provides.

I will look forward to hearing from anyone who attends. If you have time please get back to us with your comments.
