Launch #2



I know I've been a bit wonky with posting lately, but it's because I had two launches this week -- a new novel and a new graduate. My senior got his diploma last night, and is heading off to university in the fall to study meteorology in hopes of someday working for the National Hurricane Center.

I thought I'd share this moment with my readers because all of you are partly responsible for this one promising future. Most of the profits from my book sales go directly into college funds so the kids can have the education and the opportunities that their Dad and I never had.

Every time you buy a book, you do something like this for the author. You not only enable us to keep writing, you help us take care of ourselves and our families. It's the other part of being a pro for which I'll always be grateful. Thank you.

    I have been following you for so long that you seem like an old friend. I'm sure that many others feel the same. I know how proud this graduation makes you Good wishes to your graduate.

    On another note, I've nearly finished reading Dreamveil and love it looking forward to the next one.

  11. Congratulations on both launches. That's an awesome goal your son's got. If he's half as committed as you are to your writing, he'll be running the National Hurricane Center someday. =o)

  12. That's one reason I think blogs are a good idea for authors, it reminds the reader that you aren't just a name on a book, but a person working for a living. Once I started going to author blogs, and "meeting" the person behind the fiction, I had to stop buying used books. It became personal, and made me feel good to support those I really enjoy. Congrats!
