PubIt Badge for My eShort

Hmm.  B&N says I can do this on my blog...

Hmm. It's not working so well, the image isn't fitting the badge.

Authors Den

As mentioned in the previous entry, I had attended the Feb. 5th Authors Event in Wesley Chapel, and had come away meeting fellow local authors such as Philip Rice, who recommended to me a website called Authors Den.

It's a directory of independent authors, listings of their works, links to those titles available online, contact info, and so on.  I signed up for it.  It's a question now of figuring out how to use the site to market myself, to increase interest in my work, so on.

By the way, I still need to pay off this new computer.  BUY MY BOOK AND ESHORT!

I Survived The Feb. 5th Local Authors Event in Wesley Chapel

I sold one paperback copy of Last of the Grapefruit Wars and handed out about twelve bookmarks for the eshort story Welcome to Florida.  Have to admit most of the book shoppers were curious but few were buying.

I sat next to, by the by, Philip Rice with his memoir Mixed Bag (he was a fellow survivor of the XLibris experience) and also next to Madonna Wise who was promoting a pair of local histories on Zephyrhills.

My Computer Died. Buy My Books!

I need the money to pay for a new gaming PC.  Seriously.

Buy the estory Welcome to Florida!

Buy my short story anthology Last of the Grapefruit Wars!

Get 50,000 of your friends to do the same!

Help a poor veteran of the Rikti Wars who's down on his luck!
