“My book hit the market and I’m now being bombarded with sales calls and spam…from another publisher!!”

It’s scary how much information about your address, phone number, etc. can be found on the Internet, even when you take great pains to keep that information off your websites and blogs and FB pages. I had a friend who had lost my phone number look me up on the Internet. He not only found my home address and phone number, but also my voter registration affiliation. Hmmm…

Bridge of Sighs and Dreams
Nazi-occupied Rome sets the stage for Bridge of Sighs and Dreams, where the lives of two women collide in an arena of deception, greed, and sacrifice.

AWKWARD HOLIDAY GATHERINGS! When Relatives Say They Bought Your Book (But They Didn’t)

Unless the book was really specialized, like “The Annotated History of the Dinkley Family in Eastern Ohio from 1880 to 1930”, I’d be really disappointed if a couple of books bought by relatives had even a small effect on overall sales!

It isn’t just books that relatives don’t read. I write short articles (they get published), and they aren’t difficult reads. Except they must be downright ponderous. My late husband never read them; my sons and daughter-in-law, who all tell me they love the way I write, never read them either.

Others compliment me — perhaps I’m not entirely hopeless.

Does this familial ego-busting happen to others?

This was “hilariously” sad but true! Loved it! Thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays♡
