"Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language." ~Henry James
This is the fourth week of summer vacation, which officially means it's halfway over. Sigh. I have to say, though, I've gotten a lot of those little projects done which somehow add up, around the house; the rock wall out back is almost finished (hooray!) and best of all, I've gotten a lot of good writing accomplished.
Special shout-out to Diane, who's reading One Night in Memphis right now and emailed me to say she's really enjoying it: "Like reading the POV of 3 characters...lots of action too, which I like."
And an interesting observation about residual sales: my Amazon rank numbers have jumped this week, which I'd like to believe comes from my appearances the last two weekends. Never know who's going to pick up a bookmark and like what they see, or tell a friend about your book and send them to the Internet to order.
Oh, and speaking of which, I ran into an acquaintance in the bank yesterday who said, "I didn't know you published books! I just found out and was checking out your website...I'm in a bookclub, and I think we're going to read one of your books for our monthly selection. So what's the best way for me to get 15 copies?"
