Gotta get the word out!

How hard is it to tell the world about your book?

Not too hard.

It’s getting them to listen that’s the trick.

Speaking with a customer at the Dublin Library in Dublin, CA.

Saturday I shared books with other local writers at the Dublin (CA) Library, and even sold some.

Today my interview with Kaye Lynn Booth is out.

BTW, it’s never too late to pick up a copy of NEVER TOO LATE: From Wannabe to Wife at 62. 

Also available wherever books are sold. Just tell them to order from Ingram. 

R & Me

A delightful read that will teach you much about the process of discerning what is right for you.”    ~~Linda Marshall, author of A Long Awakening to Grace

Instead of continuing to search for a mate who is a mirror of ourselves, who is the most intelligent, wealthy, successful, witty, etc., embrace the person who is authentic and trustworthy, with styles or attributes that we lack, who brings out the best in us.” ~~L. Kain

4-18 Contests

Exciting news indeed. In third grade I came in second in the spelling bee. In high school speech contests I once got a third place, but nothing better. In 1976 I  was named Teacher of the Year by an alternative, unsanctioned high school newspaper.

A couple years ago I won a Bronze Medal for Talent and later I was a finalist in the Sarton Writing Contest.

Today I actually won. Best in my category as they would say at horse races and county fairs. Everything changes.

My husband, a major player in Never Too Late, says, “You don’t lose until you quit trying.” Good statement!

  1. What are you reading? 

  2. How long since you’ve read a book by someone who is not from your country?

  3. How long since you’ve read a book by someone who is not in your age bracket? 

All of these are important questions to ask on World Book Day. While it’s mostly for students, you just might be a life-long learner. I know I am. 

Real life doesn't have a script.

 

Of course I want you to pick up a copy of Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife at 62, but today I also want to encourage you to also read other authors, share their stories, and enjoy the tales they tell.

Even more, I want to encourage you to read whatever appeals. Make time to read and enjoy it. 

What are you reading today? We’d love to know.

February 16, 2018

Last week I had the honor of hosting B. Lynn Goodwin, author of Never Too Late: From Wannabe to Wife on this blog as a guest blogger.  She wrote about how compromise and acceptance were important components in relationships. Her wisdom comes straight from the heart, as does her writing.

Lynn fills her memoir with humor, honesty and a growing, mature love that is often found in the lives of older adults. She pulls the reader in with her ability to mix just enough laughs with reality. 

The reality that she met her future husband on Craiglist may cause some to gasp in shock. However, I was nonplussed by the fact that this was the vehicle for their paths to cross. Life has taught me that some of the most wonderful relationships come about through some of the most unusual circumstances. But, what I wanted to know about was how did they make it work. (I soon learned, but no spoilers here…you have to read the book!)

Also, as a minister, I loved the spiritual aspect of the story. Lynn’s talks with God were heartfelt and real. She very eloquently showed her readers that leaps of faith are never easy. (Again…no spoilers. You must read the book to see what happens!)

I highly recommend this book to one and all! Never Too Late is one of those books that you can read cover to cover, because it is just too interesting to put down.

Never Too Late is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
