Like I said, I'm going to get that checked out, but we still have to transfer over Tricare.
So it's 3 AM at my house and I'm killing my #ROW80 posting because I know I'm not going to be up early in the morning. Thank goodness the hubby is still home, and after he slept in yesterday until 11, I think this Mom deserves a sleep in.
Heart rate and coffee insomnia aside, I have very exciting news.
1- I am not checking my sales everyday anymore. This has cut down on my stress as a writer considerably. YAY!
2- I finally realized why I've been dragging my feet and dragging my feet on PAST DUE. It's getting the back burner. I know. It's sad. But it might get a few stirs and spices sprinkled in while it simmers. I'm seriously thinking about making it a short story to practice. Here's the problem with PAST DUE, as I explained to my Muse handler, my mother in law. It lacks conflict. Oh Jill makes some bad decisions. She has bad things happen to her. But it's too much of this happens so Jill does this and then this happens and Jill does that. There isn't a real dilemma, meaning Jill is never between a rock and a hard place and must do something about it. The WIP has great characters and promise. I just don't have a true dilemma for her other than getting out of debt, but that's a little broad, and she has no ending! I can't slap one on there, so until she figures out what her story is, I'm not going to beat myself up about writing it or not writing it.
So what does this mean? Well fans of CANCELLED will be happy. It means the sequel to CANCELLED is up next instead of starting it next summer. And according to the parish at the Redemption Baptist Church in Devine, TX, I'm to perform a miracle and somehow finish it yesterday. :) Johnathan is now getting three books all to his lonesome self: CANCELLED, SERVED, and APPROVED (maybe POSITIVE). The outline for SERVED just fell, plop, into my lap today minus subplots, but those will come. And pieces of the third are there.
Trick or Treat for Ebooks is going fantastically! I politely asked the people at Authors on the Cheap on Facebook if they wanted to share the promotion (by politely, I did not just blare it on their wall. I used the Contact Us form at http://the-cheap.net). If you have a book published and aren't using this resource, you should. Read the NOTE on the Authors on the Cheap Facebook page for how to format and share you Nook and Kindle links with them once per day for one book. They use this pool to fill many walls on Facebook tailored for specific Nook reads and have blogs for Nook and Kindle users.
When the link was shared last night, within one hour everyone's link click numbers doubled! And the best part? People are saying it's fun, it's different, and will there be one next year. I couldn't have asked for a better response than that, but I'll also take the 150+ new eyeballs that clicked and saw my book information and the 5 people who have bought a copy in the last 48 hours. And this is only Day 3 of 7!
Finally, one big shout out to my author friends part of a massive, 36 author $.99 sale to celebrate Melissa Foster's new book, COME BACK TO ME, Nov. 1 through the 3rd.
