Books on consignment

One thing I’ve learned being an author is that many bookstores will sell books on consignment. What this means is that the author doesn’t earn anything until the book sells. When it does, both the author and bookstore make money, a win/win!

Over the years I’ve had my children’s books in various stores around the country and last weekend I added another. It was such a pleasure to drop off both titles to Lighthouse Christian Bookstore in Calhoun, Georgia. This was the perfect stop on my way to Atlanta to join up with family for one of my niece’s dance competition weekend.

I hope the books sell! The folks in the store were so nice so if you’re in the Calhoun, GA area (link to Google maps here), make sure to stop by and pick up a signed copy! Or, ya know, you can always contact me OR find them on Amazon here

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s kinda been a crazy week

It’s kinda been a crazy week… and I’m not just talking about the weather! Although, the weather here in Nashville has been crazy. One day I’m in shorts, the next day I’m bundled up to my nose in winter clothes. Then they want us to hunker down in our tornado shelters. That same afternoon I could’ve got sunburned. Crazy stuff.

But what’s most exciting and well, pretty much has me speechless is seeing both of my books on store shelves as far south as Tallahassee, Florida and out west in Branson, Missouri. Click here for a post about that on my book website.

Today is Friday, March 3rd!

TheĀ agenda today includes more work on a documentary about a boy with a rare diagnosis who, to this day, is defying the odds. He’s surrounded by a great family that loves him so much, and perhaps that love has been the most effective thing for his disability.

I’ve also recently started on another video project about the military. It’s still in the early stages as far as my involvement goes, but I think it’ll turn out to be a great project.

Yesterday I delivered for Amazon Prime, a job which came into my life at the most divine time back in 2015. It popped up after I’d been laid off from my job of 10 years (click here for more about that!). The work allows, actually it requires, me to drive all over middle Tennessee so I’m able to listen to books on CD, music on Spotify/radio, talk radio like the great Phil Valentine Show, and of course, deliver goods to happy* neighbors all over the city.

*mostly happy.

Today I also start an 8-day hosting gig for a 17-year old blind dog named Sparky. He’s been a guest in my home before and I’m excited to have him here again. I love old dogs. And to be clear, I love puppies, too. But something about old dogs just makes my heart beat more definitely.

Hope y’all have a great weekend!
