On the Positive Side

I’ve had a few ‘personal’ blows in th past few days. My muse isn’t playing nice – again – and I’m doubting my talent, something I do constantly, so I thought a little ‘pick-me-up’ post was needed. The sales of ‘A Touch of Heaven’ were much better than I thought. Apparently the book was only available for 16 days of the ‘quarter’ – so I’m very pleased with the numbers, especially seeing how everyone is saying the 3rd quarter was a ‘slow’ time. I really didn’t expect to sell but a handful of books, if even that, so the numbers … Continue reading

Another Review

I was browsing review sites an ran across another review for ‘A Touch of Heaven’. A Touch Of Heaven Author: Lily GraisonPublisher: Linden Bay RomanceRelease Date: September 2005Blue Ribbon Rating: 4.5Format: EBOOK Paige Foster has always been a follower, doing and thinking exactly what her friends thought she should. Paige knew most of her friends were self centered snobs and even cruel at times but Paige just couldn’t bring herself to go against them. The biggest regret Paige has was the way they all treated Colin Gregory. Colin was the school nerd and he had been in love with Paige … Continue reading

Archiving Feature

I’ve spent the last week trying to get the archive paths fixed so they would show up. Of course, I’m not one to let anything ‘beat me’ so – its fixed! LOL It took me a while, but I finally got it right. So – now you can read ‘past post’ via the ‘archive’ link on the left. Not that there’s anything of interest there, but I hate broken links.

Writers Workshop

Been participating in a writers workshop through Romance Divas. Its a ‘Fast Draft’ workshop and – I’m not sure how well I’ll do, but I’m going to give it a shot. I’m suppose to write 20 pages a day…which should take me 2 hours, in 20 minute increments. Supposedly – I should be able to get a first draft of my novel in 2-weeks. Granted, you can’t make ANY changes, not even typos, until you’re finished. That will be the hardest part for me. I’m forever rewriting – as I’m writing. lol Just typing and letting everything go will be … Continue reading

New Layout

Re-did the layout again. I really like this one. Took me forever to figure out how to add links to it. They still don’t look like the others – but they’re there! Thats all that matters, I suppose. I have 3 blogs. Anyone else have 3? lol Didn’t think so. Each one has a specific feature I like. If I could roll them all up together – I’d have the perfect blog. *sigh* Now if I could just decided WHICH of the 3 I want to use all the time. Of course I post on all three because I don’t … Continue reading

Promoting & Opening Hooks

So, its quite apparent to me, that I lack what it takes to properly promote my book – and myself. I’ve been given a handfull of sites, provided by the lovely Gayle Eden and I either can’t navigate them or lack the knowledge to do what I need to, once I find what I’m looking for. Most of the sites I just sit and stare at – lost as to what to do. I have a new book out and yet, only a handfull of people know about it. I thought the hard part was actually editing the darn thing! … Continue reading

The First Review is in…

A Touch of Heaven Lily GraisonContemporary Erotic RomanceAvailable from Linden Bay RomanceISBN: 1-905393-18-0September 2005 From the moment Colin Gregory had Paige smile at him in high school, he fell head over heels in love with her. He wrote her poetry and looked at her longingly. Paige was one of the “in crowd,” always trying to get along, never leading, only following whatever her girlfriends said and did. Colin was a gangly geek with glasses that everyone made fun of. Paige ended up breaking Colin’s heart and spirit at school one day. From that moment on, he never again wrote her … Continue reading
