It's a Book Party!

It's been a busy week.  On Tuesday, as I'm sure you're all aware, Paige's Story was unleashed upon the world. The next day my kiddos had their first day of school.

In the meantime, my husband/manager/cheerleader arranged a book signing at a local cafe. So that's going to be fun!

Then, today, I was contacted by my old elementary/jr. high school to come speak to the jr. high English and Literature classes about what it takes to become an independent author. Answer: Hard work, creativity, and unhealthy levels of whiskey consumption.
You must also be willing to never sleep, possibly go into debt and/or liver failure, and stare into the existential void for at least 3 hours of your sleepless night.

Initial sales have been...good. I mean, I guess they have been good. I don't have much to base them on. But my book is in the hands of more people than I ever expected so I call it a win. I'm going to take a few weeks off and then get to work on book 2 of the Fort Thomas Series. I have a pretty clear idea of what I'm going to do. Just need to sit down and do it.

Anyway, so yeah, sorry for the lack of updates. I'll try to be a little better about them from here on.
