Attack...and smile

So I spent a good hour and a half looking up blogs and bombarding bloggers with my comments. Hmmmm… lets see if anything will come of that. I have to say that this whole promotion thing is a bit difficult. I wish there was more I could do, but with limited time and resources, its hard.

On the other hand, today was a beautiful day. Worked went by fast and uneventful. That’s always a blessing in retail.  My book is now available in Kindle version for all you technology lovers. See, I love the feel of a book in my hands, the turning of the pages, and the smell of a freshly printed copy. Maybe that makes me weird, but I think it’s what helps me write. When I received my proof copy for Simplicity, I was walking on air. The hard copy of all the work I put into it in my hands felt like paradise. It really is an amazing feeling. That is why I want to share it with the world. I want everyone to see the encouragement and adventure that can come from picking up a book every now and then.

And here is a word of wisdom from Oscar Wilde, “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” I hope you made someone smile today!

Yes, the feel of books (and the smell of some old ones too :)) is what enthrals me too..

A sneak preview of your book would be great..

Hello. Here's a visitor based on your comment on someone else's blog, so I guess the bombardment has paid off to the count of 1 so far! Feel free to check out my blog in return ;-)

Oh and another thing! :-) you could put an amazon affiliate link to your book to make it easier for your readers to find and earn you pennies. It was your blog background/layout that caught my eye. How did you make that?
