Shameless Self-Promotion

I know it won’t last, but OMG!

Amazon is offering the Kindle version of my novel, “Just What I Always Wanted” for just 99 cents through Friday.

And what a success!!!!

I made their best-sellers’ list in the category Humorous Literary Fiction – a category I didn’t even know existed. But what the hell!  BEST SELLER in any category is a thrill for me!!   And I’m in GREAT company.  Liane Moriarty, Nick Hornby, Mark Haddon. Nancy Roman.  Holy Shit!

If you haven’t bought my book yet, and you have a Kindle, here’s the link!

“JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED”

Excuse me while I faint. You can revive me with a glass of cabernet.

    • Thanks, Elyse— I’m better at writing than I am at marketing. My husband told me just this week when we were out trying to place my book at a bookstore, “You suck at this part.”

        • My husband is a natural salesman – and spent his life in sales. He can’t understand why it is so hard for me. But then again, I can write a book. (I just can’t sell it.)
