One More Try

I received some more feedback on the blurb for my upcoming novel, What She Didn’t Know. So, once again, I’ve changed it up so that it’s less wordy and more smooth and to the point:

Growing up with an alcoholic abusive father,  Michaela, Gloria, and Seraphima carry deep internal wounds into adulthood.  When a tragic event shatters their world and a long-held family secret is discovered, will they be able to repair their broken ties and heal from the past?

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.
