Hey Readers, Could You Help A Writing Sister Out?

Any day now, I’ll be getting my box of books from Publishing Syndicate. And when I open that box, I’m going to find…



So generally, when I have a box full of books, I have a giveaway or two for all you lovely blog readers. And I send a book to the parents and maybe a writing friend or two. And then I put the rest of the books here:


Er…that’s my office, under-the-daybed storage area.

Now honestly, I always have great plans. I think, “I’m going to have a book signing! I’m going to take these books out into the world and sell ’em!” Except that I don’t quite get ’round to it.

But this time, friends, is different. This time, I happened to see something about our church’s Fall Festival on the day I got the email saying my books were forthcoming. So this time, I actually did something.

I signed on for a booth at the Fall Festival (September 28th). I’m going to sell Not Your Mother’s Book on Home Improvement and donate the proceeds from the sale to the church’s building fund. (See how great that connection is? Home Improvement–Building fund. Proceeds to church–Heavenly rewards)

Yep, it’s all swell, right? Except…

Except I’ve never done a book signing at an event. And I’m a wee bit nervous about the whole thing. But I know that many of my blog readers have done book signings/sales, so I was wondering if you could help a writing sister out?

I would so appreciate anything you pass along. I’d feel much better about the event if I went to the festival armed with great tips and advice.

And books. I’d really like to have that box of books with me.

Friday’s Fun Find: Not Your Mother’s Book…on Home Improvement

Look what I found in my inbox:


When you find a book cover in your inbox, it is time to celebrate. Because where there are book covers, there are books to follow!

So hooray! My story will be appearing in Not Your Mother’s Book…On Home Improvement, slated to appear in a bookstore near you in September.

And yes, where there are book announcements, book details will follow. (Probably in September.)
