So last Saturday was the local author expo in Bensalem. It was another great experience! I sold about five books in the span of three hours. Few to a girls in the early twenties/late teens. And a couple to two of my aunts that came from out of state.
The people around me didn’t sell close to what I sold so it made me feel even better. I feel like it makes this experience much more special if they sold. However I feel like YA is the way to go. Girls love books it seems, which is great, and they want something juicy to read. My first novel Braver Than Yesterday seems to do a lot better in selling then From Within. Something about a girl being locked in a basement by her captor makes girls rush to buy. I don’t blame them, I love a mystery suspense novel. I changed up both of my novels so they can be YA. Who knows maybe that’s my calling.
I’m just really loving this whole experience. I am currently writing the sequel to From Within, and I’m over half done. I never thought that this would take off for me. I feel like I’m living my dream of writing. Publishing makes it even more amazing. People are out there reading my books and it feels great.
I’ll be at the Bensalem branch next Saturday!! I can’t wait!! ❤️❤️ I hope to see you there.
So I know it’s been a little while since I’ve wrote anything. Life has been super busy. There’s really nothing new going on. The event for the author expo is November 4th in Bensalem, PA which I will be a part of for signing and purchasing.
Also I did reformat both of my novels to the corrected versions. I’ve been taking a writing course and the teacher taught me the correct way to format. I let her read both books and she loved my second one. I think the first novel was a little too much for her, meaning sexually.
The sequel to From Within in going pretty well. I’m about half done which I’m excited about. I thought I would be done it by the time the expo came but that is impossible. I have yet to finish and edit it so I think I have a little ways to go.
Anyways I just wanted to check in. I’m actually about to head out to yoga. Hope everyone had a great Thursday!! Almost Friday!! Yay!!
Well it’s official I’m doing another event at the author expo in Bensalem, PA. I received the email last night. I’m super excited. I think this is a great way to meet people and other authors. This event will take place in the beginning of November, as it becomes closer I’ll talk more about it. That is all I know so far.
I was hoping to finish the sequel to From Within but it’s taking longer then expected so I don’t think it will be ready unfortunately. Sometimes I get writers block so I need to take a break. I’m about half done but it still needs a lot of work.
Anyway super excited for the event!! I’ll talk more soon! Have a great Thursday everyone!
Hey there everyone!
I know it’s been awhile and hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been on vacation for the past week which I can say is pretty great. Haven’t relaxed this much in a long time.
I wanted to let you know my novels Braver Than Yesterday and From Within have new and improved covers. I figured they needed some revamping. The old covers weren’t doing the books any justice. I’m really excited to announce this so please check them out. I would be eternally grateful! Hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer. I’ll be talking to you soon. The third novel is turning out wonderful! Super stoked about it!
I’m back from vacation, and yes I stated that in my last blog but I wanted to say it again because truly I am. I wrote a little bit and I’m trying to get back into the groove of things. My house is a mess so I’m in the process of cleaning but wanted to take a short break so I could write my blog. I’m feeling annoyed because my English bulldog is crying in my face for attention. I spoil the hell out of him, but who could blame me? He’s my kid 🙂
So anyways I’m feeling pretty good about my ideas for my next novels. I’m continuing the writing of my sequel to my second novel From Within. I have some pretty good ideas for a few other novels in mind, so that’s pretty exciting. My mind feels powerful when I write. It’s amazing the possibilities that can come out of it.
I really needed a break from everything and let my mind unwind for a bit. Sometimes you need that. I know I did. With working full time and trying to write and taking care of things around the house it can get pretty hectic sometimes. I’m hoping one day to carry out my goal and life long dream of being a full time writer/novelist. It’s about the only thing that makes me happy these days. The escape from reality that can I put down on paper. To escape to a faraway land that you’ve never been before. I love it!
I just wanted to thank everyone that has supported me along this journey. Also the people who read my books. I appreciate it very much! Hope ya’ll have a lovely Sunday!
Please check the link out below to read my novel Not Alone. It’s on Amazon on paperback and kindle. Thank you so much for the support!
Have great weekend!
Today was a good day. Was able to spend some time with my hubby after going to a psychic and she told me some things that kind of hurt but today I tried to make the best of it. I will not be mentioning what she told me so please don’t ask. Anyways today we hung out and it was amazing, we went to a casino and won a huge amount of money and he splurged on me. He said I deserved it, that put a smile on my face and it made my heart melt.
I feel grateful that we got to spend some time together because we don’t really. He’s always working and our schedules conflict. He made me feel special today and that’s all that matters. So to the husband that made me feel like a queen today, I appreciate you very much and love you so much.
Tomorrow I’m spending one on one time my with my best friend who is also my mama and we’re going to the flower show. We’ve been going for the last few years and I’m excited, I’ll share in my experience tomorrow. Anyways hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
