Edit on Paper Or Computer

I am editing my second episode of Zombie Zoo.  I always print out a hard copy and reread it and make corrections on paper and then go to the computer. 

This time I started on the hard copy and decided to turn my computer on.  Finished on the computer.  I still printed out a hard copy.  I will reread it and then make changes onto the computer.  I know I am wasting alot of paper and ink, but this is what I do.

How do you edit????  Paper or On Computer????

I am happy to say that the sale of my e-books are doing well.  E-Books  Only 99 Cents

Tax Time

The new year is upon us.  I have three e-books on line and two in print books.  I sold a few books over the holidays to customers at work and people are buying my books on line.

I opened a savings account to put all the money I make from my book into a seperate account.  Why??/  I don't want my writing money to get lost with my money from my paycheck.

Also it will make tax time more easy.  I will know excatly how much I made and the date of deposit and them my reciepts will be in an envelope for what I spent on my writing. 

It is simple to keep track of money you made and money you spent throughout the year, if you put a little effort into it.  You do not want to make the IRS mad at you.  Pay your taxes.

So I think I am ready for the new year.  I am very excited about 2012.

Get organized and keep keep track of the money you make during the year for your writitng.

Organize For New Year

Yesterday I took the time to organize and throw things away.  Tax time is around the corner.  Now is the time to find everything.  Get those reciepts in an envelope and start saving reciepts when 2012 come rolls around in a few days.

Doesn't matter how you organize things.  It is your choice.  I know this older gentleman.  He was wealthy and he kept all of his reciepts in an old shoe box.  That was his system.  Everything was in the shoebox.  When tax time came he took the shoe box to his tax man.  It worked for him.

I keep my reciepts in an envelope. 

My aunt owned a restraunt.  She had a piece of wood with a nail pounded in it.  She stuck all her reciepts on that nail.  When her accountant came she just handed him the piece of wood.  It worked for her.

All that matters is that you save all your reciepts of what you spend and what you make.  It is that simple.

It helps if you have a tax person that you trust.  I go to the same tax person every year.  He supports my career in writing and goes out of his way to help me find dections that I have coming to me. 

So start saving those reciepts and get organize and find a tax person that you trust and that you can go every year and even be able to call during the year if you have any questions.

I will write everyday no matter what.  I will have more writing on line, cause that is what I do.

Carrying A Notebook

Ever since I have put my Zombie Zoo  on line.  www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS   I have been carrying a notebook to work, and I don't care who sees me write or what others think.  I carry my notebook everywhere I go.  On breaks, on lunch.  Once a co-worker asked me if I was writing a book and I proudly said yes.  That shut him up.  He wasn't ready for that answer.

I jot down ideas or just think and write down what I am thinking.  It works, when I get home I have been thinking all day that I am ready to write when I get home.  I am more productive.  I have other story ideas written down and I am not wasting time. No writers block for me.  After Christmas, I will never have an excuse to writ  cause I am writing at work and at home. 

What are your goals for 2012?

Merry Christmas

I want to thank everyone for making this year one of the best years ever.  I am so grateful for all your support.

I wrote 2 books and one short story this year. I never planned it, it just happened and couldn't be more happy.  I am an example that it can be done.  If you want to be an indie writer, self published it is possible.  What are you waiting for?  Get published now is the time.  I had one lady buy 22 of my books and she had me sign them.  How cool is that???  I had lunch with her and sat and signed the books.  It was something that I always dreamed about.  It could happen to you.

If you have any questions and I can help you from what I learned I will tell you what I learned. 

I just want to say Merry Christmas  & Happy New Year.

May 2012 be the best year ever

Onto Next Story

I came to the conclusion to stop checking my sales.  I need to write the next story.  I already have the second episode of Zombie Zoo written and proof reading it and have plotted out Episode 3. 

No matter what you have for sale or how many books you are selling.  You still need to write the next story.  Doesn't matter if it is a holiday or you are sick or something comes up, you need to write the next story.

2012 is my year for writing.  My year for my sales to soar.  It is now or never for me and nothing is going to stop me. 

I get up early to write.  I write at work.  I write when I get home from work.

It is your choice to write or not.  No one really cares if you write, unless you are making money.  So it is your choice to write or not.

I choose to write.  What about you?

I am an Indie Writer

Signing Books

I had lunch with a lady that bought 20 of my books.  She is giving them as Christmas gifts.  I met her for lunch and sat at the table and signed 20 copies of my book.  It was a moment that I didn't want to end.  I always dreamed of signing my books and my dreamed came true.  How cool is that????

The lady also bought my lunch.  Being a writer is the best thing.  I will not stop writing or stop publishing my writing.

Zombie Zoo   www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS   is selling at http://www.amazon.com/ as an e-book.  I get so excited when I check my sales report.  I am selling books on line and there is nothing better to see your work being sold.

Alway And Forever  www.amazon.com/dp/B006M8PAOA   is also selling at http://www.amazon.com/ as an e-book and I am selling there also.

I would never know that I could do this if I gave up.  I never gave up and now I am signing books and having lunch with people who are buying my works.

So don't give up on your dream.  Keep writing and get published.  What are you waiting for?

I Am a Writer

 I need to get out of my bubble and let the world know that I am a writer.  I was at work, and writing in my notebook.  a co-worker came in the breakroom and asked in I was writing a book.  I know that he was being funny, but I said, yes I am and that shut him up.  Then he started asking me questions about my writing and I told him.  He was surprised that I was a writer, but he was also impressed.

So don't be afraid to admit that you are a writer or be afraid to tell people that you are a writer.  You never know where it will lead.

I told a customer that I was a writer and gave her a business card and she bought 20 books from me, as Christmas gifts.  If I didn't admit that I was a writer, I would not of sold 20 books. 

I went to amazon.com and all three of my books are there when you put my name in.  3 books in one year how cool is that?

Checking Sales

I am selling my book Zombie Zoo

www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS

I am trying not to check my sales every five minutes.  It is hard not to check my sales, cause I am selling my Zombie Book and very excited to see my book sell.

I am working on my next Zombie story, and can't stop writing. 

I know that the holidays are upon us, but that is not an excuse not to write.  Enjoy your family and friends and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, but continue to write and let 2012 be your writing year.

There is no reason why you are not published.  If I can do this so can you.  Write your story and see your dream come true

Selling Books

I have been selling books this weekend.  I have been handing out business cards to whoever I meet.  I am not an outgoing person.  I don't like to be noticed or talk to people.  If I am going to be an indie writer I need to promote myself.  So I have my business cards and hand them out.  I work in a bakery and I talk to my customers that I see everyday and give them my business cards.  A lot of people are impressed that I wrote a book.  No one has said anything bad or acted like I was stupid.

One of my customers ordered 14 books on line and then she bought 5 books from me and had me autograph them for me.  I put in the postcards I had ordered and business cards in the book.  She is giving them as Christmas presents and was thrilled to know a writer. 

My dream has come true.  I am a writer.  I am selling books.  I am autographing books and I am not stopping.  2012 is going to be my year and I will write another book and get it on line.

I have sold over 30 books so far.  I have 3 books on line and did all of this in the year 2011.  6 months ago I didn't know how to down load a file or even upload a file.  Now I am a published writer.

Need To Get Busy

I have been slacking in my writing this week.  Yesterday I woke up with a terrible headache, so I didn't get much writing done. 

I am still getting over my excitement of selling my books, and that is no excuse.  I am trying to be honest with you, that no one is perfect, and everyone has to find their wiritng rythem, cause there is no right way to write and no wrong way.  we all have to find our own schedule.

I am waiting for my short story, e-book to be formatted and hopefully I won't have any problem uploading it.  Then in 2 months I will have another short story out.  I will have 6 short stories up in 2012.

I also would like to have another book in print and e-book.  So that is a lot of writing.  I need to get busy.  I am busy at work and just plain tired.  That is no excuse. 

I need to get back on schedule.

Do you have a writing schedule????

Let me know what it is.

To Excited To Write

I didn't get much writing done today, cause I was to excited about my sales and I kept checking my sales report.  That is never a good idea to keep checking it, doesn't get you anywhere.

So now I have to get serious again and get back to get writing.  So you never know what is going to happen, so you never should give up. 

It snowed to today.  The weather channel said rain and it snowed.  Not happy at all.  I hate snow. 

So I need to get back to writing.

Have a great day.

SALES, SALES, SALES

I sold 17 books this month.  I am very excited.  Next month I will recieve my first royality check.

I sold 12 My Bible--My God  www.createspace.com/3614885

I sold 2 Always And Forever  www.createspace.com/3681119

I sold 3 books at work

It is hard to believe that someone is buying something I have written.  It has always been my dream to hold a book that I have written.  It is now a reality.  I wrote a book, published it and now people are buying my books.  I have written every since I learned how to write.  I never had much support from my family when I lived at home.  I kept a journal and wrote short stories even though my family wouldn't read them.  Once I moved out on my own, I kept writing and friends and co-workers became my support system.  I never gave up on my dream and neither should you.

there are a couple of co-workers that support me and that means so much.  So if you have the dream, the desire to become a writer, there is no better time than now.  Now is the time.  It is now or never.

I will do my best to help any of you with what I learned.  If you have questions and I can answer them, I will.  Leave a comment and lets make 2012 the year to become Indie Writers

I Can't Stop Writing!

I am not sure this is a blessing or a curse, but I can not stop writing.  I find myself writiting at work, jotting down notes and ideas.  I come home and rewrite my notes.  I am constantly talking to my boyfriend about getting my books up as e-books.  I am making him read what I write and all I can think about is writing.  I have more stories in my head that I will never have time to write them all.

I am not complaing, cause I am so excited.  I have two books in print.  By the end of the month I will have 3 e-books on Kindle.  I am pricing the three books at .99 cent.  I am so excited that nothing can upset me.  I go to work and am thrilled, no matter what happens.  I am a published writer and no one can take that away from me.

I know that people at work, don't really care about me or what I do.  Don't talk about my writing at work.  I just smile and think about my writing and make notes.  Then the co-workers think I am writing a note about them.  Ha! Ha!

So I don't kknow about you but this will be the best Christmas ever.  I am very excited about the new year and what it will bring. 

In a few weeks I will have a short story on kindle called Zombie Zoo.  It will sell for 99cent.

I will let you know when it is up and for sale.

New blog

I have a new blog:

http://zombiezoothebook.blogspot.com/

My short story, is about Zombies.  I know that is not even close to an inspirational romance, but I do love a good Zombie story. 

The short story will be availible in a few weeks.  It is being formatted for Kindle and will be for sale at the Kindle Store.

There will be 6 episodes in 2012, about the plague that changed the world.

Like I said.  I can't stop writing and am very excited.

Promote Your Book

I have to admit that I have not done anything to promote my newest book.  I know that I should, and I will, but with work and then thanksgiving and now Christmas, I have been busy, not to mention that I just wrote a five thousand word short story.

I have been busy, but that is no excuse.  I know that other writers stress over promoting their book and not working on the next book cause they are spending all their time on promoting their book.  I am doing the opposite, I am just working on the next book and can't seem to stop writing. 

Three weeks Christmas will be over and things will slow down at work, and then I will have more time. 

Maybe this is not the way to do it.  I guess you are supose to promote your book when it comes out, but I have the need to write. 

So what do you think?  Would you promote your book first and write later????

Let me know.
