… retailers to begin pushing their products for Christmas.
It’s no wonder, since Christmas sales account for
as much as thirty percent of a retailers yearly sales.
Likewise, I am beginning to push my books for Christmas.
I hope you who are local will visit me at one of these events.
Here are what I have scheduled, so far:
I hope to be at EatRite sometime in November, too.
More about that when I know more.
When other opportunities present themselves,
I will try to let you know about them.
For those of you who are not local,
paperbacks and eBooks are on Amazon,
while audiobooks are on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
Be watching those sites for sales.
When you or your young one read one of my books,
please leave a review on
Amazon, Goodreads, or Audible.
Thank you for your support and interest in my books.
Last year, I attended the Christmas In October event at the Amarillo Civic Center.
I was really impressed with the quality of booths there
and the mission of Sharing Home Ministsry.
Admission was only $5. Children 12 and under were free.
This year, I will have a booth of my books for sale.
So get into the holiday spirit early this year
and mark your calendars for the:
16th annual Christmas in October Gift & Craft show
brought to you by Sharing Hope Ministry
Saturday, October 29th, 10 am - 5 pm
& Sunday, October 30th, 11 am - 4 pm
in the south exhibit hall at the Amarillo Civic Center
Get a jump start on Christmas shopping while supporting Sharing Hope Ministry.
Hosting over 100 vendors and one of the largests bake sales around.
This is a popular family event.
All proceeds from the admission tickets and bake sale allow
Sharing Hope Ministry to provide Life Recovery Bibles and materials
to women who are struggling with addiction, adversity, and crime.
Hearts of Three Kings: The Story of Glops, Book 8 is now an audiobook. When released last week, this audiobook was the #1 New Release in Children’s Christian People and Places! It is available on Amazon and Audible. Go there to listen to the sample and see what you think. It will soon be on iTunes, too.
More good news:
On Amazon, the paperback is presently on sale for 15% off.
Take advantage of this short-time offer.
While there, be sure to view all my Glops books and music books.
Having completed a working outline for the next book in the Glops series, I began writing on it this week. The title is Kingdom Divided, Exiled, Restored: The Story of Glops, Book 8.
The paperback and eBook of Hearts of Three Kings were published on April 12. They are available on Amazon.
Since then, I have worked hard to get the book recorded for ACX. I record myself as the narrator, using my make-shift sound room that is really a bedroom closet. I do the best I can to sound like the different characters, including the glops. I also add some sound effects. I submitted the files to ACX yesterday (July 13). All the files must pass through both ACX and Audible quality assurance checks. Once it passes, ACX will let me know and begin distributing it on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. The whole process is usually completed within 10 business days, as long as there are no problems with my audio files:
If the audiobook does not pass the quality assurance checks, ACX will let me know right away with instructions for how to remedy the problems..
I'll let you know when ACX give me the thumbs up, 100% approval. In the meantime, go see my Author's page: https://www.amazon.com/~/e/B07C3H59RG
The launch of Hearts of Three Kings: The Story of Glops, Book 8 was a great success. For a week or longer, both the paperback and the eBook were in the Top 100 at Amazon in two separate categories: 1. Children's Christian People and Places Fiction, and 2. Children's Christian Historical Fiction. Hooray!!! Thank you for your support! They may have continued to rate highly, but I went on a fun trip and could not check the rankings. Oh, well. The trip was fun and I was happy to spend some time with daughter, Elayne, and her husband, Don.
I was asked if I would like to present a program for "Fellowship Through Reading" at First Baptist Church, Amarillo. Of course! Are you kidding? Yes, of course! This is such an honor! On Monday morning, I will have about thirty minutes to talk about the books I have written and continue to write. I anxiously look forward to this wonderful privilege.
Words can not express how grateful we are for your expressions of love as we continue to mourn the loss of our grandson, Dustin McKinney. He was twenty-one and died on March 22. We received phone calls, messages, texts, notes, cards, flowers, plants, hugs, and saw your attendance at his Celebration of Life. You prayed with us and for us. Everywhere we turned, you were there offering your love. We are truly blessed by you.
Hearts of Three Kings: The Story of Glops, Book 7 is at #108 in Children's Christian People and Places Fiction on Amazon. I hope it gets into the top 100. I'm watching to see what happens.
This coming Tuesday, April 12, is the Launch Date for Hearts of Three Kings: The Story of Glops, Book 7
Spread the word! Let everyone know that another book is ready to be read!
Both the paperback and the eBook will be available on Tuesday. After you read the eBook or paperback, please leave a review on your favorite online store, such as Amazon.com, Goodreads.com, or IndieBound.org. I will begin working on the Audible audiobook soon.
In the meantime: For fun, look at the photos on either side of the book cover below. What do the photos represent? Who do they represent?
