Iowa Book Source


Well, I have been working on setting up a site where we are utilizing the best of both worlds for independent authors as well as readers alike. I have a local mall that is renting me a window to display books in where it will have seasonal, holiday, and goings on themes changed out twice a month. It has been something I have wanted to do for a while now but am finally getting to do it! Continue reading

A new start to our publishing!


We have been going to fairs and book signings this year and have really enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people of Iowa! IMG_20141025_103704

We have been to several places and even started selling cookies and baked goods for my daughter! We have three books completed and published with two more in the wings. Kai’s Journey 3, A home at last should be done by Christmas. We already have pre orders for it and I’m excited to get them shipped out.

We have come a long way since just having a presence on line. I still think the online presence is very important but it is also important to have one where you get to meet people face to face. Talk to them and give them a chance to get to know who you are as an author. It has been a busy time with attending classes and keeping up with finding places to vendor and do book signings at as well but I am really enjoying the whole experience! 0928141235

We have also taken pictures of other people at different events to showcase authors as well as other vendors at the different events. What a way to get a chance to help support different causes, different towns and charities around your area. It’s a great way to give back and get involved with people around you. I hope you all enjoy the pictures, more to come in future posts. We are also signed up for NaNoWriMo as well to help push the finish up of book 3. Stay tuned!
