A Dream Realized

One of my dreams as a writer has always been to see my book(s) on a library shelf. I love libraries. The books, the smell, the quietness, the peace, did I mention the books?

Today, a dear friend sent me this picture. He and his family were at the Evansville Library, one of the oldest libraries in Indiana, and he was perusing the young adult fiction section, when this caught his eye. He took a picture and sent it to me… and it made my day… for obvious reasons :)

Upcoming

Hey all, sorry it’s been a while since my last post. Summertime is crazy and busy for me, and to top it all off everyone in my family has gotten sick in the past week, and now the cold has hit me as well. Yech.

Anyway, just wanted to apologize for my lack of posting. I’m still trying to decide whether or not I like blogger or if I want to do something else with my writing blog: what do you think?

Be on the lookout for an upcoming book giveaway – details to come soon!

Also, be on the lookout for updates on “The Dragon’s Eye” I am down to about 90 pages left in my re-writing process!

That’s all I’ve got for now. Thanks for your patience.

Random Trivia

I would like to announce that my author fanpage now has 126 members!!

Also, I just discovered today that since Oct. 2009 I have sold 49 copies of my books. (The publisher I originally went with from 2005-2009 got merged with CreateSpace and I don’t have easy access to the records of how many books I sold before the merger – I know it was upwards of 200 total – 2 books).

I am over half-way through the editing/re-writing process of “The Dragon’s Eye.”

I am exploring ideas of how to merge this blog and my personal blog into one big, happy family… but I’m not sure of the best way to go about it. Ideas? Thoughts? Anyone?

Also, if I do merge the two blogs, I’d like to port my old posts over to the new blog (my personal blog is xanga-based, and this one is, of course, blogger), anyone know how to do that or which format would support that sort of thing?

I’m also open to running a “Name the New Blog” contest… or just accepting name ideas here. Any ideas?
