Surprises are Coming

It is a good day. Well anytime I am on this side of the dirt it is a good day. With that being said, let me just bring all of my minions up to speed as to things that have been happening. After the year got off to a rocky start, they have finally settled down and I am moving forward with some projects.

 I know I haven’t published a new book in a while,  however that will be remedied soon. I have several in my cauldron and they are boiling up nicely. Second not only are my books doing quite well on Amazon Kindle they are picking up on the book side. They are now being published through Dressing your Book  http://dressingyourbook.com/ which prints from Lightening source which distributes through the two distributors Ingram and Baker and Taylor- so if you go to your favorite book store and ask for my book and they don’t have it – they can order it for you. If enough people ask for them – they will start stocking them. 

Now with the basic stuff out of the way – let me just tell each of you what is coming down the pike. For those of you who loved the When Fates Collide Series, well you will have the opportunity of listening on audio soon. Both on CD and mp3. We are going into production with the first two

These two little books are the first two in the series and will be released together.

Now on to the book I am currently working on. Let;s just say, the bad guys is Mad as a Hatter. view two mad hatter's hat

I am also working on something that is very close to me- something that I have been fighting for several years. That is the corruption of Child Protective Services. They took three of my grandchildren and made money off of them.

So life is moving forward. Books are being written and audio books are in production. This year is full of great things

I am honored to be among such greats in the literary world. These some authors have been on my reading list since I was old enough to pick up a book. To be list as one of them is almost overwhelming. To be told that as an indie I am the wave of the future is a dream that has finally come to fruition. If you haven’t read my works, they can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kindle, Nook and my online bookstore at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com – My books are not sold in box stores because I am an indie author.

To be able to among the likes of Koontz, Flynn, Hitchcock and others just from selling online is almost unbelievable.  But yet – here I am.

I am an eclectic author who writes what ever suits me at the moment. From true crime, to inspiration, to comedy, to crime fiction, to suspense, to historical fiction. My books are as varied as I am. My most current release is a crime comedy which markets the gay and drag queen community. The Pink Canary came about all due to a misspelled word. That word was supposed to be Camaro. It was if a lightbulb went off over my head as my friend told me she has typed the word wrong. I saw Lula – one of the main characters in my head as soon as the words were out of her mouth. This book morphed into one of the funniest books I have created to date. The Abbott and Costello dialogue between Lola and Leary the local Police Detective will have the  reader wiping the tears from their eyes. Add one insanely funny sidekick by the name of Penelope with her Chinese Hooker Heels and Aqua Net Hairspray, who is drawn from my best friend and you have a story that you will not want to put down.

I write not to become rich – but because it makes me happy. I write to share the stories in my head with others and to give a voice to those who know longer have one with my true crimes. Those voices who have been forgotten and who never had the chance to live a full life. I write to give inspiration to those who feel as if they are to burdened to continue in life. I write to teach lessons in fiction. I write to leave behind a part of me that begs to be read. Yes, I am an indie author. I am proud of that title. It  has taken over 30 years to realize my dream of being published. I had rejection after rejection after rejection. But in the end I found a way to live my dream.

I was asked a couple of days ago why I don’t just say I am a published author. That is the reason. I am an indie author. I did this without traditional houses houses telling me what to write and how to write it. I did it on my own with the help of others who have broken the glass ceiling of publishing. As artists we are growing in numbers, from music to books to art. No longer will the public be told what to read, what to listen to and what art to enjoy. We have arrived. That is why it is such an honor to be in the company of such authors as Koontz, and Flynn.

Thank you Sweet Mystery Books for recognizing that I have come into my own.
