Whew! Times a flying and stuff just keeps happening. Let me report on two big deals. Wednesday, I got to do a reading from ACT OF TRUST, Book 2 The Second Chances Series, and speak to the Greater Keller Women’s Club. It was fun, and I even sold a few books. They are nice folks who are themselves very busy doing good things for others. It was pretty inspirational. Here I am with the president Kimberley Vines on the right and the Program VP Debbie Johnson on the left. Thanks, ladies, for the opportunity.
Then Sunday, September 19 we dedicated our new church building. The one we moved into in March of 2020 right as everything shut down for Covid. In past blogs, I’ve shared pics of our former home and some of the process of putting this place together. This is the new home of Ridglea Presbyterian Church. From the time of the first offer to buy our old property to now has been over 8 years. Quite the journey. But we are enjoying our new home and neighborhood so much.
You may have seen on Facebook where I posted I’d uploaded COMPROMISE to Draft 2 Digital with a release date of Nov. 4. I’ll have a pre-release sale from October 17 – November 3. Then you can get the book for $1.99. On release day, it will go back up to standard prices for my books. $4.99. Y’all this is a good book. Yes, it’s my most recent, and don’t you just love the most recent best? Still. I really like this book. Hoping to have a Trailer out before release day.
Now, I’ve been talking about this next thing for quite a while, and it’s finally here. Tomorrow, I’ll participate in the Fall Into a Book Giveaway on the Isn’t It Romantic Book Club on Facebook. We’ll be talking about vacations and drinks. I do hope you’ll stop by. I’m giving away a $10 Starbucks GC, a pdf & a print of TAINTED, and a print of VERMONT ESCAPE. 4 Goodies. You just have to answer the questions to be entered. And I should add, while the graphic says 150 authors, there are 256 who’ll be posting that day. (This is not a FB sponsored event.) You comment. Your name is drawn. Winners are announced on Saturday! Pretty simple. Really do hope you’ll stop by so we can chat, and you have a chance to win. (You must join the group to play along.)
Lastly, some of you may have noticed a couple of recent Facebook posts of mine that were LIVE. So I took this course that suggested this would be a good thing to do, so I’m trying it. I should’ve Googled how to do FB Live before beginning, but I didn’t because it should be point and click, right? Hoping the next ones will be better. Apparently, it’s really okay for FB LIVE not to be perfect and for the person not to look at his/her best. Well, I’ve got that part down. LOL Below is the link for the second one. Not sure what happened to the first one. Maybe they don’t hang around. ??? I’ll get better. 🙂 Well, I can only improve, right? https://www.facebook.com/marsha.r.west/videos/https://www.facebook.com/marsha.r.west/videos/1236355546832968
And last but not least. It’s finally fall in Fort Worth. Check out my post on our WORD BY WORD Blog tomorrow. The lead pic on this post is from the Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire.
So do you enter contests on Facebook or other places? Tell me about it if you do. What have you won? Have you done FB LIVE? Do you have any tips? I’d love to hear from you.
