I have been on the journey of a self-published author for nearly a decade. In this time of year end reflection it dawns on me that I owe a debt of gratitude to my readers. The collateral goodness of writing is connection with the hearts and minds of kindred spirits. Making a buck is always a good thing, but that is not why writers write. They do it because they want to share experiences in a way that engages and inspires others.
The act of writing our thoughts comes back to us in strange and mysterious ways.
|Fun Night Sharing Wai-nani with Book Club|
It has been so wonderful meeting people online who have read one of my books and have found it worthwhile, even rewarding to travel with me, and my characters. Even though my books are in different genres, a common theme is that they are all destination pieces. They all take you to a places you can't get to any other way. It is my extreme pleasure to give back to the world in this way.
This a note of thanks to all of you have purchased my books and posted reveiws for them. That means so much to get feedback and to know that people have enjoyed my work. I hope there will be many more readers who want to see the ancient Hawaiian culture through Wai-nani's eyes, or will take a thrilling ride with Gemcie in the Cowgirl Jumped Over the Moon, or become a stow away in the " Lost Angel's "backpack for more wonderful outdoor adventures.
I am busy gathering more tales for my second travel collection. You can help me by selecting the title you like best.
(1) The Lost Angel Rides Again
(2) Wild Ballou Wander
(3) 50 Shades of Ballou
Please leave a comment letting me know which one you like the best.
Wishing you a Bountiful New Year filled with love and laughter!!
