I am so grateful for all the people that God has put into my life as an author, especially one in particular who has taken me under her wings and showed me the ropes of getting published. It's a learning experience. Catherine Burr of New Line Press is an extraordinary woman! I respect and take all of her input to heart as I continue my journey into being an author of books for young readers, actually, books that attract readers of all ages, after all it is the adults who check out the books before they give them to their children. Anyway, I just had to mention that this morning, so thank you Catherine Burr of NLP, hugs and smooches from my humbled heart. You are a writer's buddy for sure.
Okay, back to the point. I was taking inventory of all my books. I counted them all, wrote down all the titles and recognized my best seller, which is the reason for this Saturday morning blog and a new creative promotional tactic, which by the way, just popped into my head.. What can I say, an author got to do what they got to do. I'm just putting a little spin on it. Ha ha, I do love doing what I do. Lets see how much you know about the books that I have written......are you ready for the test? What, you don't like test???? Well take it anyway, it will be fun jogging your memory.
