Oh Happy Dance! My novella is ready for readers. I love these characters and the only way they can live on is when readers enjoy them too. As an author I feel a bit like a mom for these character kids- my ornery seniors. I hope you like them too.

I have only dipped my toe in the publishing world but I have learned a few things to share.

Did you know:
*Reviews are important for authors.   Please leave a review where you bought your ebook after you read it.

*Before authors are paid, 10% of the book must be read.   I had no clue about this! If you get a book to read later, at least flip to 12% or so then restart it when you really have time, or no credit goes to the author, even though you paid. PS- Amazing Gracie costs 99 cents.

*Mailing lists are important because we can’t control Facebook and other media outlets, but we can control sending you a spiffy newsletter once in a while.   Please join my mailing list for more Skeeterville news and advance notice for upcoming stories. No spam-I promise!

*Also, You don’t have to have a Kindle to get Kindle books. You can get Kindle on your computer, Nook, Android, ipad, ipod, or phone.  Go to Amazon there are instructions there. OR install it from your app store.  Easy and free.

*You can pay Amazon for a Kindle book with a gift card you get at a store, or Paypal, or Visa. If you have an Amazon account, you are already set up.

And, I learned how to make a tiny url today. which is that short web address that you see on Twitter. Tada! Sometimes it’s the little things that make me happy.

      Thanks Tshirt person, I used WordPress and one of their themes. There is lots of help on the net and I had to put it together myself. I’m glad you like it. If you’d like a light short mystery, Amazing Gracie would fit the bill. I have a reader who had gotten away from reading and is now reading novellas on a Kindle. Her DH told me I created a monster, instead of tv she is always reading something. I don’t think that’s all bad.
      Thank you again.
