Sold 2 Copies and Got 1 Review

Today I sold 2 copies of my new novel AFTER JEWEL. Once again, thoroughly enjoyed signing each to my reader. 

Later, heard a wonderful review of THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY. The man said he read it in “three days which is not like me.” He continued, “I really like this one a lot. I don’t know; I related to it. But I do like METAL MAN WALKING too.”

So gratifying to hear.

An E-Mail Request for More Books

Today I receive an e-mail from C.H. She asks me if I am well and if perchance I am writing another novel. She also indicates she wants “more books.” She wants to buy 2 of my novels to send to a friend who is presently overseas.

I am thrilled.

I respond. She buys a copy of METAL MAN WALKING and a copy of THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY. I sign and date both copies. She’s mailing them to her friend. She says she knows “he’ll love them.”

She also tells me she is a “number one” fan of my writing. I tell her she makes my day – my month!

She can’t wait for AFTER JEWEL.

Talk about new motivation!!!

Annie Dreaming by Carley Evans

Once again, sharing M.T. Sweat’s wonderful words about me as a writer and about ANNIE DREAMING. Thanks M.T.

Resting in His Grace

By mid-year of 2011, I had become an avid fan of the convincingly positive and inspirational works of Carley Eason Evans. It is a rare trait that is found in her words; ceaseless care, compassion, and concern. The evidence of a life influenced by Christ flows through the ink of her pen… or keyboard.

I recall suggesting she consider carrying her work to another level, perhaps the publishing of a book. Straightforwardly, she assured me my coaxing wasn’t necessary. It was already in the works.

I personally felt Carley could provide us with a unique devotional to complement works like Chambers’ and Carson‘s. She traveled a very different road. Thankfully she went with her heart and not mine. While I still believe she can one day offer such a work, her gift to her readers today is fictional reality. It is very sufficient.

Her available titles are “Metal Man Walking” and “Annie Dreaming.”…

A Surprise Sale

You probably think – ‘poor novelist; she’s only selling books now and then.’ 

Right now that’s true. Even one sale is exciting. I like to imagine the reader – someone I know or perhaps someone who will come to know me a little bit in the pages of my novels.

METAL MAN WALKING sold as a paperback – more power to the book in hand! – on Tuesday. Thanks reader(s)! Enjoy. 

And, don’t forget to write a review!
