The Children Are Coming!

Yesterday, I was notified that the books are printed and will soon be arriving!

And I’m happy to report that if the trend continues, this “first printing” (small run of only 200 books) will be sold out in less than 30 days. After that, I’m going to take a little time and decide what’s next. There’s every possibility that the 200 books will be it.

A heartfelt thank you to those who have ordered a copy.

My books are probably enjoying the ride.

    How exciting! I ordered an extra. That should take care of Christmas gifts!

    It’s funny. We were traveling from Georgia yesterday and saw one of these trucks.

    I had never seen one from this company that I could remember and was not sure if the name was Saia or Sala.

    Usually don’t remember things like this.

    I wonder if your books were on that truck and that is why it spoke to me.

    It was in Charlotte, NC yesterday. 😀

    Rose – did you ever look at http://www.createspace.com for publishing? Near zero cost, maybe $6 or so for a 300 page proof copy.

    No inventory, it is all print on demand, they ship. Free listing on Amazon or you sell from link on your site to the createspace site and make a bit more royalty.

    They take order, ship and you get royalty check.

    Use your own ISBN or one free from them.

    Cover can be in color but rest is black and white. Softcover only but I think that is what you have.

    I have six books with them under a pseudonym. Worth looking at, then you stay in print forever. Put your other ones with them too.

    This is so exciting. I’m ordering mine tomorrow!

    Kudos to you Rosemary for trudging through the mire and making it out on the other side. Soldiering on.

    We went right thru Charlotte. We will never know if that was the truck but it makes me feel more connected. @Sears Homes

    I have received my Penniman book and can hardly wait to get started reading!

    Rosemary, you have an insert about finding errors (typos etc.)

    I seem to be an expert at finding others errors (but of course never see my own).

    I will let you know if I find any.

    Received mine today! Huge book, compared to the other two I have from you.

    Don’t let that research ability go to waste. There’s a lot more of it in you!
