And of course I have started on number six. I’m only on chapter 2, so very early days yet but it’s all coming together. It’s the first completely new book I have written in about eighteen months. I had Fisherman’s Dream and Rock-a-bye Baby each about two thirds along then lost momentum. After that I got disheartened trying to find a literary agent or publisher so abandoned the whole writing lark. Then a couple of months ago I got fired up again. So I made enquiries about Amazon and here we are.Now I that I have my books ready it would be nice if I sold some – I had quite a lots of eBooks downloaded when they were free but only a little drip drip of eBook sales since. It’s not even the money, though that would be nice, but for my self esteem, for validation of myself as a writer. But I do need to make my books available to the right people, who would seem to be of Baby Boomer age, though not necessarily. But then every now and then I stop and think what the hell? If I enjoyed painting or drawing I would paint or draw and not worry about selling the end product. I enjoy writing, so?
I am putting Puzzle, Fisherman’s Dream and Rock-a-Bye (if it’s ready but it should be) up for a free Kindle promo on Boxing Day. My rationale is that people will have nice new Christmas Kindles and be dying to try them out. The exposure is what I need; sales should start picking up after that (fingers crossed). Depending on the response I thought I might try the same on New Year’s Day but will need to decide beforehand as I will be in Borneo between Christmas and New Year J

I can’t sit here nattering all day. Presents to be bought, presents to be wrapped, a dog to be walked, a dip to be prepared for a party tonight. Onwards and upwards!
Till next time J
