What Success Means To Me

I’m very thankful, touched, grateful, and a bit astonished over my book sales. I say this because when I published my book, Passage of Promise, I had a very realistic and sober view of the amount of books I thought I’d sell.

I truly believed I would sell between 10 and 20 copies. That I’d be thrilled to know that 20 people had purchased my book.

But checking out my year-to-date report for all forms of my book sold: International, Print, Digital, Signed Copies, the number is more than 20, and I’m still somewhat shocked, but also so very happy.

Since my book came out May 1 (print) and May 4 (ebook/digital), I’ve sold 100 copies.

If I count the 10 my mother ordered to give as gifts to her friends, I’ve sold 110 copies.

Maybe folks won’t see that as a huge success, but for me, it’s amazing and indeed a success for me, an unknown self-published author (with the help of the best editor I know, D.A. Sarac) with her first ever published book. I feel extremely grateful and blessed.

THANK YOU ALL, who were interested in my book, buying it, reading it, reviewing it. This means more to me than I can truly express.

A Small Book Signing Presentation

I had a small book signing for my debut novel, Passage of Promise, today after church. My table was set up next to the three tables for parishioners in the parking lot of the church for our coffee hour that follows liturgy.

Many of my fellow parishioners have already bought my book, I found out a little while ago. 🙂 But there are some people who haven’t. 😁

I will be doing another book signing presentation in the coming months at my church.

Here’s a picture taken this morning at my table. 🙂

It’s tough being able to do these events during this period of the pandemic, but I do them when and where I’m able.

I hope this inspires my fellow writers to work out some outside event for her/his published book(s) at this time. 🙂
