I’ve changed the working title of my upcoming novel from JEWEL to AFTER JEWEL. As the work unfolds, the reader will understand the rationale for the change. On the surface, I think this title has more ‘pull’ to it. Any thoughts?
I don’t know why I cross my fingers sometimes. I did so tonight when I checked Createspace to see if perhaps I’d sold another book this week. Lo and behold, I did! I sold another copy of THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY earlier in the week. Now I only need one more sale this month to get paid the royalties owed to me at the end of next month.
After a late morning lunch of Chicken Satay and Jasmine tea, my friend and I went to the local wine bar and enjoyed several half-glasses of white and red wines. Then, we parted company. Walking back to my car, I spotted a sign outside a local clothing shop with chalk words “Book Signing Today.” I strolled in to greet the author, and speak to him.
He wasn’t selling his novels today, but a coffee table (gift) book of his articles from years of writing for the local newspaper. I’m not much interested in this kind of work, so I took his card. And he bought a copy of THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY which I signed. I still love doing that – signing my novel is so much fun.
Happy Reading, everyone!
And I sold a copy of THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY on Amazon.com to an anonymous reader –
I sold a copy of ANNIE DREAMING to a couple. They wanted to give the novel to their son who is an aspiring author himself.
