People want to buy but they don’t WANT TO BE SOLD!
I love that quote. It’s so true. How many times do you go into a store, greeted by eager-beaver salespeople asking if they can help you find something to buy?
I could never be in sales…
But alas, I AM.
I’m an indie author. Not only do I write, but I also market and SELL.
Like with most businesses, the market is pretty much saturated with books. You name it, there’s a genre out there. And about a trillion…Continue

How many mailing lists do you subscribe to? Of all the emails that clutter your inbox, how many do you actually read or even OPEN, for that matter?

Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject.
My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite.
When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I had a storyline in my head. Okay, that's not exactly true. I had about a HUNDRED stories in my head before landing on the ONE, and even then I flip-flopped around until I landed on the…Continue

Argh. Sooo challenging...and so permanent. It needs to be just right.
Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?
You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field? Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…Continue

When I was asked to review Raising Redemption, I jumped at the chance because it sounds like a great read and it had an excellent story line based on the excerpt from the back of the book. I realize that life is full of twists and turns and that everything in life doesn’t always go according to the way we plan things. As a parent often times, we have high…Continue

Coming back from a recent trip to the library, we dragged ourselves indoors and settled down to look at our new books. This is always a fun special time, where I attempt to read ten different stories at once, as there all so excited and want to look at all the new books at the same time. I try my best to keep up as books are given to me, and taken away again in the blink of an eye.
I love their enthusiasm for the stories, and they know I…Continue
