My new eBook, 70,000 views, and Other news

Hello my friends. I have a new eBook out...well, it's not really a book, but a short story. It is called Believes in Angels and it's actually an adult story. My first story for grownups!  I felt like writing a wholesome Christmas romance, so that's just what I did. You can get it at Amazon and Barnes & Noble right for $0.99 or you can got to Smashwords and get it for free. It should be free on the other sites eventually, hopefully, before Christmas. So, Merry Christmas.

My blog has also recently reached the 70,000 views mark. It's not a  lot really, but seems like a lot to me me because my blog hasn't been getting as much traffic as it used to. And through those 70,000 views one of my most popular posts is How to Make a Sticker Album.

And in other news, I'm working on another young adult novel. This one I might try the traditional route when it comes to publishing because my stuff doesn't sell very well when I publish it myself, so I'm going to go the whole query route and what not. The story I'm working might be more marketable to agents and publishers than my previous works, so I I think I might blog about that process here. Right now I'm at about 26,000 words, so I have still have a bit of writing to go. Along with that story I'm always working on other stuff here and there, so we'll see what I come out with next.

Sweet Saturday and Updates and Whatnot

First, the sweet for Sweet Saturday.
My babies.

Pumpkin Seeds! Not exactly sweet, but yummy.

Next, updates, the 411, what's going on with me. Well, I'm writing a short Christmas Romance story and it's for adults! It will be the first thing ever I publish for adults. We'll see how it does because my story is what I call wholesome romance, meaning no bedroom scenes or dirty acts. My story takes place in a small town and if I actually sell more than one copy, I'm going to make some follow up stories that take place in the same town. And as usual, I'm also working on like five hundred other writing projects.
I was thinking about participating in NaNoWriMo this year, but I'll be too busy editing my Christmas story.

Pete and Doris Visit Chicago

Over the summer Pete and Doris spent some time in Chicago. Here's their unique view of the city and their trip through a few pictures. 
On Michigan Ave. near the Water Tower.

Under the bean.

We do not know the guy in the striped shirt.

In Milllennium Park.

In front of the Art Institute (one of our favorite places in Chicago).

Book Clearance Sale

I went to a book clearance sale this weekend at a convention center near my house. At first I was apprehensive because I thought it would be a bunch of crap that nobody wanted to read, but I was pleasantly surprised. As I was leaving the sale on Saturday I heard somebody say that on Sunday everything was half off, I went back on Sunday and it sure was.
Tables and tables of books.

Found an Arthur bookmark in one of the books I bought, made me happy.
Heck to the Yeahs, a companion book to Rex the Runt, awesome, and only a quater. 


 If you have never watched Rex the Runt, run out and watch it now.

The DaVinci code anyone? They had tons of copies, couldn't even get rid of them for a dollar.




Stack from when I went on Saturday.

There is an unwritten rule that when you buy bunches of books you have to lie in a pile of them and take a picture of yourself.

P.S. The formatting of this post might be all crazy like because Blogger was acting all whack-a-doodle.

Permanent Adhesives is FREE!

Hello my friends! My young adult e-book Permanent Adhesives is FREE! And right now it is #100 on Amazon in their Free Kindle Literature& Fiction/Children's Fiction (we'll see if it has any holding power or not). I recently made a change to the cover. I gave it more of a young adult feel because I really liked the old cover, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't screaming out to too many people (not sure if the new one is either, but I'm hoping).

You can get Permanent Adhesives at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony. You can get it through Apple too, but I think you need the app for that. It is also available at Smashwords if you want say...a pdf of it.
