I am filled with gratitude for all that I have accomplished in the past year physically, emotionally and mentally. It was a wonderful year to finish two books and get them published in two very different ways. The Mother's Day Gift entered the Amazon market in May of 2022 as a softcover chapter book for young teens to adults. This book is about seeing the signs after a loved one dies. It is a true story about the strange occurrence that happened to me after my mother passed away. She gave me a special gift that changed my life forever and made me see the signs. This is a great book for anyone who has dealt with grief or loss and needs some hope in their life. This book is selling on Amazon as stated above.
My other accomplishment was running another successful Kickstarter Campaign Project for my third story called The Alphabet Comes Marching In and Literacy Guide. I choose a New Hampshire Printing Company to print these two books in a softcover format. I was thrilled with their work and that they were able to deliver the books to me in the month of November. This meant that I could send out all of my pre-orders from the Kickstarter Campaign before the holidays. This was a very important goal to complete for the year.
My last goal for the year is to get The Bakery Shop Second Edition Book out on Amazon as an E-Book, board book and a softcover book.
I will accomplish this goal by mid January. I hope to create some hype around this book to get people to read it for free and write a book review about it. Please if you are reading this, when I advertise on social media that I am offering a free E-book please consider going on to kindle and reading this book and posting a review. It would be greatly appreciated. Self-Published Authors benefit from people leaving reviews, so they are greatly appreciated.
My New Year's Resolutions for this coming year will be to find an illustrator for my fourth book which is based off of an experience I had with my heath this past year. This book will be a fun informative story for children age 4-8. It will be an engaging repetitive story that will have your children singing, laughing and playing along with this lively story.
I will also attend my first in person author visits at local schools, libraries and camps in the coming months.
Afterwards, I plan on selling my books at other bookstores in the state of New Hampshire.
goals will be to organize book signings and public reading events this summer and fall.
Lastly, I hope to create some artistic pictures that will be for my illustrations of my sixth and seventh books that are in the rough draft stage.
Well, as you can see, I have some BIG goals for the coming year and I look forward to carrying out these plans!
I hope you have a wonderful and healthy New Year.
I will continue to blog as I accomplish my goals or to keep you informed of my up and coming events as a self-publishing author ✍️.
Cheers to 2023!
