Good afternoon! Hope all is well with each of you. It's been an interesting weekend here. A new book up for sale (have you grabbed a copy of 'Guarding Charon' yet?), and a daughter graduating from high school. As I sat in the bleachers, I thought off and on of my own graduation. The differences … Continue reading The Start of Something Different?
Good morning! It's been an interesting day already. Bit of a shuffle this morning...lots of things to do with work, etc. Part of my job includes talking with authors who aren't getting sales. Or, rather, the sales they expected. This problem is more widespread than you might think. I say that only because so many … Continue reading Why authors have to be optimists
Good morning! Yep, I checked. It is still morning in my part of the world. Though my back's lobbying for another few hours of sleep. I was gone all weekend, camping.

After you … Continue reading A week full of great books on sale!

Thank the Goddess I have a freezer full of coffee! LOL No, I haven't written much original stuff beyond this … Continue reading A Top Ten List of Sorts
Good morning! I hope everyone has a great week.Me? I struggled a little. Okay, more than a little. For a day, I gave into the hopeless insecurity that plagues every author. When sales are low, and you've done a push in promotion without any results, it's hard. It becomes a real struggle to put words to … Continue reading Insecurity, Thy Name is Author!
First off, contest news! I'm doing a rafflecopter and giving away a copy of one of my paperbacks signed to the winner! Check out details on my FB page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/KateMarie-Collins/217255151699492).
