The changes at Mailchimp have taken away most Forever Free Plan features, sending many of its customers to search for a new mailing list provider such as Mailerlite.
Happy 2019 Bloglandia!! I'm a day late with my New Year's wishes, but hopefully that has given everyone time to get over their hangovers. With the New Year upon us, I thought I’d go out on a limb and share with you how my 2018 went. This is the first time I’ve bared my statistical … Continue reading The Successes and Failures of My Writing World in 2018
A Little Warning & Apology Okay, this post is going against my usual humble style and I'll just preface all this braggy-sounding content by letting you know that all these amazing rankings were only in the Amazon Kindle Free Store (as opposed to the Paid Store) and so don't quite count as much. Plus, I … Continue reading Making It to Number One on Amazon (sort of)
This Valentine's Day I'm showing my fantasy series a little love. I've forgone the box of overly-packaged, overpriced chocolates and sappy cards, and have instead opted for a little makeover...not for me, but for my books. What in the world am I rambling on about? Cue drum roll...... The first three books of the Osteria Chronicles … Continue reading Happy (Re)Launch Day to the Osteria Chronicles!!!
Egad! Is it really the end of January already?

Oh, and I should put out a disclaimer that … Continue reading Monkeying Around with Marketing
Now that you've probably read every other blogger's resolutions for 2018, it's my turn to jump into the Pool of Goals and Ambitions (please shower before entering). As I mentioned last week, this post is going to be chock full of my many aims in my writing career over the next year (and even beyond). Now … Continue reading It’s Going to Be a Busy and Creative 2018
Since today's post is about my books sales, it could very easily take on a rather dismal tone. But since moaning and groaning isn't the point of this week's indie author musings, I promise I'll try to keep it as upbeat as possible without going all Pollyanna on you. Because even though I'm starting from … Continue reading Time for a Book Marketing Makeover, aka “My Book Sales Suck”
I've gotten many questions lately from people asking about the best way to order my books in paperback format because apparently many of you enjoy holding a "real" book as you read (me too!). And let me just start by saying I will never complain about how or where you order my books, I just want … Continue reading The Book Ordering Question Answered
