Time To Breathe

The first thing I want to do today is thank Miss Terry, Judy Rinehimer, and Roberta Jensen for all of their hours of hard work editing and proofreading my newest book, Big Lake Assault. Without you dedicated ladies, no book project would ever get done. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all three of you.

I also want to thank all of you readers who waited patiently for the book, and then have been downloading and reading it, either through a purchase on Amazon or through Kindle Unlimited.

It’s already off to a very good start. In just over 24 hours, it is ranked #5,956 in the Amazon Kindle Store and #35 in its category of Amazon Hot New Releases. When you think of the millions of books available on Amazon, that’s quite enough achievement. And it’s thanks to all of you who read my books, tell your friends about them, share links to them on social media, and leave reviews.

Much of yesterday was spent promoting the new book online, getting my free author’s newsletter ready to send out and then mailing it out to the subscribers, and a lot of other little details connected to a new book release. I always tell new or wannabe authors that writing a book is the easy part; the real work begins once it’s published.

But now it’s time to breathe and relax just a little bit before I jump into my next book project. That doesn’t mean I’ll be slacking much, because for the next three days we are having some cooler temperatures. Cooler meaning being down into the 80s instead of the mid-to-upper 90s with a triple-digit heat index.

We’ve got a lot of work to do outside, mowing the pastures, raking up all the cut grass and piling it to be mulched, and putting some grass and weed killer down on the driveway, which is getting overgrown. If there’s any time left after that, there are downed limbs to be cut and run through the woodchipper. Buy a place in the country, they said. It’ll be fun, they said! 😊

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. This one is courtesy of my friend DW Stultz.

Thought For The Day My cell phone is acting up, I keep pressing the home button but when I look around, I’m still at work.
