SOLD ONE

Postby LilliesCarol » Sat Apr 18, 2015 10:15 am

Hometown Memories LLC in Hickory, NC is publishing a book about Wisconsin and they have accepted my story about Matt and his early days growing up in Milwaukee. They are asking for pictures and if your picture is selected for the cover, you win $100 for that. Also, my two books are now available on Createspace and Amazon. They are GOD IS MY HELP and THUNDER WEATHER, the novel about my ancestors (namely my grandmother). I am so pleased to have accomplished something for posterity. YEAHH, specially since I will be 83 the end of April. So I say NEVER EVER GIVE UP.

Congratulations, Carol! I read the sample of "Thunder Weather" on Amazon, and now I'm hooked. If I wasn't so poor right now I'd have ordered a copy immediately. You can be sure I'll have a copy in my hands soon, as your grandmother's story sounds very interesting. It will be fun to read about her life.

Many congratulations, Carol. I already have God is my Help, and, as soon as I can, I'll be buying Thunder Weather, too. It sounds very interesting. Good luck with the sales! :D
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

Thank you ever so much for your support. Matt's daughter came to visit over the weekend and she could not stop reading. That was a good sign, as she is an avid reader. Her comment, how did your grandma ever put up with him? And. in one part, I'll bet your mom never told you about that episode (referring to a small love scene). Umm was I being a naughty writer or just enhancing the story. You know mom's don't tell their kids everything. Tee Hee
