Rich Farmers Update and Giveaway!

Yes, this is another shameless plug!

People tend to enjoy my music posts more than my book posts, but hey!  A gal's gotta make her $11.98!  Total.  Seriously.  And that's mostly because my friend took pity on me and bought a copy.

Be that as it may, I wanted to announce that Rich Farmers is now available on iTunes and Barnes and Noble (for Nook). 

I was going to say how honored I am to be featured (to use the term loosely) on iTunes, but then I realized that some of Red River's songs can also be found there; not through any effort (or knowledge) of the band.  It seems that one of our music libraries, Audiosparx, put together a few compilation CD's of various artists, and some of our tunes were stuck on five or six of those CD's (No sales to report!  Just like my book!)

So, I guess I'm an old hand at iTunes.....

Now is a good time to put in a plug for my book formatter and cover designer, Elijah Toten.  You can view his services here. He was very nice to work with, and I think he did a great job on the cover design.  Granted, I gave him a picture that I insisted he use, but the graphics, especially with regard to the subtitle, really convey the scariness and, I guess, shakiness, of that time, growing up.

I bet there are tons of self-published authors who only sell one or two copies (I write, sobbing).  I can still say I did my best, and I slaved over writing my book; and I'm GLAD I did it.

And now without further a-dewww, I am giving away three copies of Rich Farmers in whatever digital format you choose.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post.  Guests on my author site will also be included in the drawing.  I will use the Randomizer to select the three winning entries.

Winners will be chosen on Friday, May 3, 2013.   

Thank you for reading!

Rich Farmers Update ~ More Retailers

Getting tired of this yet?  Ha.  Well, I'm a business man (woman?), so I hope you understand that I am excited about expanding Rich Farmers to more retailers.

Therefore, just a quick note to let you know that Rich Farmers is now available for download from Smashwords here.  I have no idea why there are two copies available ~ trust me; both versions are one and the same.  I don't consider myself to be technologically challenged; I choose to blame the websites for any glitches that occur.

I'm counting the days until Smashwords makes my book available on the iTunes site.

And ~ ta DA!  I have 11 downloads now!  That, plus the two from Amazon, makes a lucky 13!

And here I thought the only person who would buy my book would be me.

Ooh, I can feel the $1.97 in royalties rolling in right now!  I can retire!  Hallelujah!

Seriously, though, Rich Farmers isn't half bad.  My friend Barb didn't actually use the words, "half bad", but she's still reading it!  That's a good sign!


UPDATE!  I just viewed my sales report via Amazon, and I have sold 4 copies!  So, 15 now!  What the heck will I do if I ever reach 20?  (And seriously?  There are fifteen people who will soon know all the embarrassing details of my life?  Eeeek.)
