We Found Fall!

We’re on vacation so I’m going to post some pictures from our trip this week.

300 Women Authors Went Wild

Angie,
I just came back from the International Women’s Writing Guild Big Apple Conference in New York City. I have to tell you the audience of over 300 women authors went wild when I told them how little you charged me to self-publish my books ($517 for new authors; $367 for returning authors). This after another woman pitched her self-publishing firm for $8,000.00. Not only did I sell a lot of Fireflies, Fireflies Two-Vat 9 and Kisses To Die For books because your cover designer created such eye-catching book covers, but the women made sure that I autographed their books, and added your BookLocker.com site under my name.
Thank you so much for all your help in publishing my books, and thanks for assigning Todd to do my covers. He was an absolute delight to work with. It’s been a pleasure working with you.

“Does That Website Really Own The Photo They Just Gave Me Permission To Use?” Not Likely!

I have found a few pictures on the Internet that I would like to use in my book. I have seen them on several different sites. However, I can’t seem to locate how or where to buy the rights to use them and I haven’t been able to find them (or anything similar) on the sites that allow you to purchase rights.
One website has given me permission to use them but I am not at all comfortable with this because I cannot be sure that THEY have the rights to be using them!
