If you haven’t already – go buy my first children’s book. Go on… we’ll wait…..
Got it? Oh, good. Happy to sign it for you next time I see you. AND NOW — you are ready for:
Happy Good Friday! I hope everyone has a restful holiday. We are entering the conference season, and there are a lot of large conferences coming up soon. So, today I'd like to relay my
disaster experience with my first conference and then offer the powerful lessons I learned.
Remember, I made all the dumb mistakes so you don't have to.
It was a blast to launch and see the book go from over 100,000th in the sales rankings on AMAZON to it's highest point of #471. That was awesome. That was better than I thought it would do. But... we're coming down. It's natural. It is what it is. Kev prefers not to watch the slide. He told me not to do the reverse play by play, and that's probably wise.
Sometimes, no matter how much you want to, you can't unsee what you've seen. No matter how much you drink, or how much bleach you pour into your brain. Pick you cliche of choice: unring a bell or put the genie back in the bottle.
Whatever your cliche of choice - it all boils down to we have a book, and we let it out in public.
It’s been a long time, and I just wanted to say, whatever.
Okay. That’s out of the way. I have a new book coming out. What’s what. Go like it here: http://www.facebook.com/HerMajestysExplorer?sk=wall
Let me brag on my illustrator – William Kevin Petty – he’s awesome. His page is here: http://www.allied-aethernautics.com/
What else – Eleanor is losing teeth – she is gappy with one missing front tooth at the moment – that was #4 of the baby teeth gone. She reads EVERYTHING now. Both girls love soccer and Sara is a cutup and a cuddle bug. Tony joined a Steampunk Band. http://www.theextraordinarycontraptions.com/ He played his first gig with them last week – HE WAS AWESOME.
Well – I’ll see you in six months for another post. Until then – see me at Facebook…. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1585386959
