WOW! THANK YOU!

WOW!  THANK YOU!

ELECTED released today on AMAZON in ebook version and KICKSTARTER for the hardcover and printed copies, and I am absolutely floored by the response.  I promised I would keep you all up-to-date on how the book is doing and give you the ins and outs of publishing as I went through it. So far:  on AMAZON the book is ranking really well.  I can't see the sales yet because those have a few day delay, but by the ranking of 20K (which moved from 1,000,000 when the book first released) I can tell that sales are good.  The goal for today is to get ELECTED into the top 100, so we still have time!!!...

“Take the Feedback, No Matter How Painful”: Q&A with Author Barbara Garren.

I'm happy to have Barbara Garren on the website again.  I helped get the word out about her novel when it was released a few months ago.  Now she's back on this site to give us some writing tips.  I really like Barbara's bravery in giving this tip and taking it herself.  When I first started sending my novels out to agents, I heard a similar tip -- that authors should be like roasted marshmallows.  Soft on the inside to be able to write from the heart but crispy and hard on the outside to be able to take criticism, no matter how painful. So here we have 10 interview questions/answers...
