Happy July, readers! Yes, I did just quote The Spice Girls and had major flashbacks to my grade school days when my friends and I danced to their music in our talent show. Thankfully, this was the pre-smart phone era (think bulky camcorders), so I don’t believe anyone has a recording of it. But the lyrics do make a great lead into the first newsletter section…
What exactly do you want, readers?
As is done in most of the business world, I complete regular reviews of my book marketing, social media, pricing etc. With so many options available to readers, it’s important to pinpoint what brings you back to my individual stories time and again. Obviously, you each signed up for this newsletter for a specific reason and there are reasons you continue with me month after month. There are reasons why you buy a book and reasons why you don’t. Why you click on an Instagram post and why you scroll right on past.
I want to know all those little details that help bring an ideal experience to my readers. Yes, I want you to buy my books, but I also want to provide additional engaging material. If something isn’t working, then it’s time to do it differently.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could take ten minutes of your time to complete the survey below. All the questions are optional, but I do hope you will consider completing them. Also, responses are anonymous, so please share all your thoughts! Thank you in advance!
Dusk Shall Weep Writing Updates
I won’t lie, this month has been rough for writing. For some reason, my motivation severely lacked. I did, however, get a few important plot points figured out and am hopefully back on track. At about 50,000 words in out of 90,000, I hope to finish drafting by the end of August.
If I hit this goal, I will be announcing the release date in next month’s newsletter, so stay tuned! I appreciate any prayers to help keep the creativity and motivation going!
Shop the Sales
In January 2020, I purchased several copies of Across Oceans and Twisted River in anticipation for book signings during 2020 and into 2021. Well, we all know what happened after that.
Since then, I’ve published three more books and need to make room in my house for updated inventory. Therefore, good news! You can now get either paperback in my direct store for $9.99 or both books for only $18. This deal does not apply at other retailers and is only available to U.S. residents.
Also, there are still a few days left to get For A Noble Purpose at a discount. Simply use the code Noble5 at checkout from now until August 1, 2022.
