A little bit of this, a little bit of that…

A little bit of this, a little bit of that…

This year is almost over and I’ve been very lazy in my blog writing, but it’s not because I haven’t tried. I looked through my drafts and counted twenty-nine – yes! 29 – partially written blog post for 2019. I was afraid to look back any further. 😬

This has been a busy year.

  • I published Avoiding The Tilt, my third book and then got bogged down in marketing and promoting.
  • I started an email list. You can sign up here. And believe me when I say you will very occasionally receive emails. So far there have been two since July. I do give free stuff away when I send out one so sign up and don’t miss out.
  • I purchased a new computer – a Mac versus a PC – so that has been a learning experience. I think I have the hang of it now. I know now I’ll never go back to a PC.
  • I have been working at my real job more this year. I actually had to work for six weeks straight in the shop in October and November. That was a nightmare because I usually work from home. Deb is retiring in February so there goes my job and all that free scrap fabric! 😂 Here’s where I use a lot of it.
  • And speaking of retirement, I’ll be there soon. Medicare is coming my way in December. My card has arrived along with my insurance supplement card. My insurance girl said I was the only one she has talked to who is happy about receiving Medicare. I’m just glad to be getting some medical insurance at an affordable price.
  • To relieve some stress, I’ve started dabbling in publishing low content/no content books. Yes, that’s a thing. What I love about it is making the book covers in Canva. So much fun! (I’ve got a lot of drafts here too) You can check out my content here . It’s stuff like this that makes great stocking stuffers at a low cost. I think I’m most proud of my password keeper books. Who doesn’t need one of those?!
  • Last, but not least, I’m still writing. Working on another book, but not ready to share details yet so stay tuned.

As you can see I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire. It’s no wonder all those blog posts got lost in the turmoil. The holidays are upon us so I see no relief in sight! We are traveling to Atlanta for Thanksgiving to celebrate with all but one of the kids. I’ll see her in December. What are your plans for Turkey Day?

Beware Of Hidden Clauses

Beware Of Hidden Clauses

Have you ever signed up for a newsletter to be bombarded with constant “junk” mail in your inbox? I have…

What I thought was going to be a nice friendly newsy and infrequent note from time to time turned out to be more and more and more…

I promise my newsletter won’t be like that. I frankly don’t have the time and I don’t possess the technological mind to send out automatic notes or reminders ever few days or weeks.

What you can get from signing up for my newsletter here is a $100 Amazon gift card if you are the lucky winner! I guess you could unsubscribe if you don’t win. But then you wouldn’t be eligible for the next prize in the very infrequent newsletter give-a-way. I don’t know if I can top that $100 gift card but it will be something you’ll want to find out!

BTW – Avoiding The Tilt, my newest humorous fiction book, publishes in a few days! Preview here. I’ve been working hard this past week to finalize the manuscript and cover. What do you think about my new cover?
