Another year, another set of teachers. That’s what happens at Vita Post Mortem Academy, a school run by famous dead people. Having special abilities, like being able to see spirits, means extra responsibilities. Jules Winklevoss, the protagonist in my fifth book, The Curse of the Winklevoss Twins, learns that firsthand when she returns for another adventure at the prized academy.
Check out the line up of teachers she has for her sophomore year:
Science: Marie Curie
Math: Charles Ponzi
English: Dr. Seuss
Social Studies: Princess Diana
Psychology: Steve Jobs
I’m a math nerd. I love spreadsheets and use them in all aspects of my life. I have pie charts for seating arrangements and linked macros for house renovations. You name it, I have a spreadsheet. So I was wondering how I could incorporate math into book marketing. Check out this video to see my tongue in cheek attempt:
There’s something about holding a physical book in your hands. People love it. The pages smell like paper and ink. It makes the writing more real. Therefore, I decided to hand out physical copies of my first book in the (after)life lessons series. Rather than a link or a post that you can swipe past, handing out the book started a real conversation and ignited interest.
I brought my books to my jazz dance class. We took a picture with the books. I posted it and tagged them on Facebook, hoping their friends might see it and vote for the book, too!
As I request friends and followers to vote for my book on Kindle Scout, I’ve had lots of people ask me, what is Kindle Scout?
Here’s your answer.
Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. I posted my book on this site before its available for purchase. Based on the short description, first four chapters, and cover, readers can vote for my book to be published by Kindle Press!
Over the years, friends have asked about the secret ingredient in my mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies. Many have tried to recreate her delicious treats, but few have mastered the art.
This past weekend, my mother and I baked her cookies together, and I discovered her secret ingredient….love. My mother pours her selfless heart into each cookie, just like she does with everything and everyone in her life.
My mother is caring, thoughtful, giving, wonderful, fun, joyous, loving, and entertaining. I love her so much. Happy birthday!!
