Today marks eight years since I had my first book hit the market. When my book first came out I write a blog post titled I Wrote A Book.
Since then its first publication, over twenty books have been sold. Don’t be sad. I am just happy that I had book sales.
After having gone through the self-publishing experience, I can honestly tell you I’d never do it again!! Self-publishing is the publication of media by its author at their own cost, without the involvement of a publisher.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t take making a Marketing plan as seriously as I should have. I didn’t have a “marketing plan” in place. My plan consisted of zero advertising, word of mouth, social media posts, book giveaways, and writing blog articles. Next time a publishing company can do it all. I’d be happy to attend book signings.
Writing The Sequel
Writing the sequel has been a challenge over the last few years. Life has gotten in the way of actually sitting down, and pushing forward to get it done.
My goal is to finish things up by the end of this year. Stay tuned.

I don’t know about you, but I am so over the Coronavirus. I was sitting here thinking about some of the words I’m tired of hearing and never want to hear them again, if at all possible.
Unprecedented – without previous instance; never before known or experienced; unexampled or unparalleled: an unprecedented event.
No one was expecting a pandemic to hit the whole entire earth. This word is overused! After this is over it’s the first word I don’t want to hear any time soon.
Do Your Part – If you do your part, you do something that, to a small or limited extent, helps to achieve something.
Yes, it is getting to be too much. Stop telling me what I need to do you be healthy. I have always washed my hands, covered my nose and mouth when sneezing, cleaned and disinfected my house among other things.
I posted this to my Facebook page quite some time ago.
Seriously, I meant all of it. I see so many people go into a public lavatory, use the facilities, and not wash their hands. It’s just gross!
Wash Your Hands 🙌 Washing your hands is easy, and it’s one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs.
Our Senior Citizens have lived through the worst of times. The #coronaviruis is not the worst thing they’ve lived through. We have a duty as a society to care for, appreciate and listen to their lives stories.
Did you get caught up in the great toilet paper hoarding? How much do you really need for your family for one month?
Listen, I’m not trying to make light of this new obstacle in our daily lives at this time. The point I’m trying to get across is to stop and think about how we as individuals and what we affect all of us!
