So I published a real official book last week

You can read the complicated version of the story here on my Write for Income website: Right on Schedule…

Or you can just buy it (free for a limited time with Kindle Unlimited) and once the print place replaces my manuscript with the one that has no links in it (because duh… people with books in their hand can’t really click on things, can they – also why didn’t I think of that before?)

After that happens it will also be available to hold in your hand. if that’s a thing for you.

It seems like it should be a big deal but it’s not.  It’s just one. Plenty of people my age have written and published many many more. Plus the entire thing took less than a day from start to finish. Anyway it’s done and it keeps me on schedule for the many many many more books I plan to publish this year.  Also, incidentally, I launched a new website to go with the book (because launching websites is what I do when I’m not doing actual writing) You’ll find that at


And… the big reveal for the project that’s closest to my heart… the children’s book series…. is coming.  Here’s a sneak peek of some of the illustrations the girls and I have been putting together. We’ve had so much fun with these, Maddy drew the pictures and then I scanned them into the computer, opened them in Photoshop and replaced the white space with the textures of real things (including our faces):
