Elephant Creek has been loaded to global bookstores, enabling people far away from Australia to purchase a copy. How cool is that! Imagine someone in London picking up my book.
Ingram Spark does an awesome job of placing the book in places like Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I did realise however there were some missing distributions channels. This has seen me go back to my very first publishing place – Smashwords. If you’re a Smashwords fan you can find it here: Elephant Creek and for a limited time, you can set your own price.
I’m testing distribution channels to see if this will spike book sales. I still have copies available if you would like a personally signed copy. Go to the Bookstore.
Or if you prefer an ebook go to Amazon Kindle or Smashwords. On Amazon it is only 98 cents for a limited time. And, please, please please leave a book review. Thank you.
A bang of New Year’s Eve fireworks may be how most people will spend the end of 2019. Not me. I’ll be taking a more straightforward approach, ending the year with gratitude, pride and bittersweet memories. Maybe raising a glass of cold beer with my nearest and dearest.
As I age time moves faster, though for some reason this year seemed like a long one. It was packed full of the highs and lows of life, like an old rollercoaster slowly chugging uphill only to shoot down the dips, so my heart dropped to my stomach. I have ached but I have healed. I am optimistic about 2020. I hope you are too.
I’ve laughed, cried, worried, grieved, shared, created, worked, pondered, let fitness slip, planned, been bullied, stayed resilient, supported, began a dream job, enjoyed wins, endured loses, regathered, communicated, got motivated, fought lethargy, got fitter, ate healthier, built a new life, found a new home, created family traditions, grew bonds, rediscovered design, networked, increased gratitude, wrote – and above all – loved.
What I learned most was:
We all have hidden internal struggles
Showing successes on social media doesn’t mean you are more successful than others
If you find the person who loves you warts and all love them warts and all back
No matter how far you travel, real friends remain
I write to be read
Words are, and always have been, my story
You’re probably wondering if I have a resolution. I have too many because I have a long list of goals I would like to achieve in 2020 and beyond. So, instead, I am setting myself a monthly challenge. I’ll let you know what my January goal is. Less alcohol and more exercise. I guess it’s a common one in January but for my health – an important goal.
What’s your New Year’s resolution?
I’d love to hear yours. Comment below. Thanks for reading my dear readers. You mean the world to me.
If you would like to read my first two books for only 99 cents (ebooks only) and have a sneak peek at Elephant Creek.
