Happy Fifth Bookiversary!

Did you know that Oct 14 is my fifth bookiversary?

Five years ago, I published Looking Over Your Shoulder. Not the first book I had written by any means, but the first one I published. I’ve learned a lot about publishing since then, have learned more about the writing craft, as well as learning new tools and crafts such as Photoshop, book cover design, web design and coding, and marketing.

Marketing is probably my biggest challenge right now. Learning to write better sales copy, finding selling keywords, get better ROI on advertising, etc. Not my forte, but something I need to keep improving at in order to be able to sell more books, reach more readers, and get you all hooked on even more books!

Next week I will be releasing my 38th title, She was Dying Anyway, book #3 in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries series. Don’t worry, there are still plenty more coming. The well has not run dry!

I am looking forward to exploring many more great plots and characters and I love to hear from happy readers. It is a thrill whenever I open my in box and find letters from people who enjoyed reading one (or more) of my books. Thank you so much for being there for me!

There are always good deals going on around my website, whether you are reading this blog when it first goes up, when you can still grab She Wore Mourning (the first book in the Zachary Goldman Mysteries series) for $0.99, or whether you’re reading it a couple of years down the line. Take a look around and you’re bound to find a great new release or promo price.

Tell me what you think!
