Swamp Ghosts Promo Blowing My Mind!

I don’t want to be obnoxious, but I’m just so truly happy at how well this promo is going. When I first decided to get busy and write a book about a year and a half ago, I was doing it for ME. Call it a Bucket List item, if you will. I wanted to write it and learn how to publish it. I have a theory that in order to stay young, you must learn something new every day, and you should also hang out with people younger than you are. (Not difficult after a certain point. I’m thinking by the time I’m ninety, all my friends will be in second grade!) 😀

At any rate, I wanted to write and publish a book, and satisfy a lifelong dream in the process. So I did. And it did surprisingly well, especially since I had no idea at all how to market it. (I’m STILL learning that part). But Wake-Robin Ridge was such a satisfying experience, I couldn’t wait to write another, so I started Swamp Ghosts immediately, and now I have a second novel (and a book of poetry) published, and all in less than a year. This time, I used social media a bit better, and even though I’m still a newbie at that, I think that has made a huge difference in the response to the first Free Promo of Swamp Ghosts.

I was so excited when I got up this morning and checked on how it was doing, I had to take screen shots for my Inspiration Board. They are VERY inspiring, believe me. See for yourself:

Swamp Ghosts is #5 of the Top 100 Free Books in Contemporary Women’s Fiction

It’s also #5 in the Top 100 Free Books in Women’s Romance Fiction

And amazingly, it made the Top 100 Free Books in the Kindle Store, currently at #55! Wow.

Now I’m more thrilled with all of this than you can imagine, and sharing it with you feels great. But the MAIN reason I’m sharing this is because there’s a lesson to be learned here, you Newbie Writers of all ages. It is never too late to follow your dream, and with persistence and hard work, you CAN do it! If I can do it at 70, with nothing but my long-ago high school English classes to fall back on, a lifelong love affair with reading, and a darn good editor, YOU can do it. You younger people have so much time ahead of you to perfect your craft, too. Something I don’t have, I know. But I’m going to keep on trying to get better with each book, learning stronger writing skills, and putting my heart into everything I write.  And by golly, when it’s my time to shuffle off this mortal coil, heading to that Great Library In The  Sky, I’ll have left something behind for my children and grand-children, and maybe for a few fans here and there, as well.

For me, that’s enough. I’m happy. Now you go and get YOUR happy, too. Take that first step, and don’t look back!

(And if you haven’t grabbed YOUR free copy of Swamp Ghosts, what are you waiting for? Go get it now. 😀 )
