This and That

Let's get started with sales or downloads. Since technically "The Tulip Kiss" and "The Proposal" are being offered for free, they aren't really sales but I've had a few this week on smashwords, 3 of "The Tulip Kiss" and 1 of "The Proposal", none of Finally Home. On Kindle, there have been no sales this week as well as on Nook. So far this month, though, I've had something sell every week except the week of the 15th with "The Tulip Kiss" having a download on the 1st of the month when I actually started the SSW50 coupon participation on smashwords, Finally Home selling a copy on Kindle the week ending the 7th; Finally Home selling a copy on Nook the 11th; "The Tulip Kiss" selling a copy on Kindle the week ending the 14th; and then this week's downloads on smashwords. None of the downloads on smashwords this month will bring me any royalties unless someone purchases a copy of Finally Home at the half price special in the next couple of days. Tuesday is the final day for the special over on smashwords. So if you haven't received your copy yet and you enjoy reading Nancy Drew mysteries or know someone who would enjoy reading a short mystery similar to Nancy Drew stories, pop over to smashwords and get your copy for only $1.50 (don't forget to use the coupon code SSW50 on checkout).

I've started an Etsy store this week and have put all my bookworms and afghans on there and will be adding the kindle/nook covers and tablet covers soon. I hope you all will stop by and see everything. I'll be adding some more bookworms soon as I picked up three skeins of yarn the other day for bookworm purposes only. For more listings, stop by my shop.

I've been watching the Olympics some but mostly crocheting bookworms and finishing up more afghans. I've got 2 more skeins to finish the Watercolor one and I think I just started the 3rd skein of the Woodsy. All that's left is the Marrakesh. I keep forgetting to take the handheld sewing machine back or purchasing a power cord so I can sew the velcro on the tablet covers but for the most part, everything is finished other than the velcro and a few buttons. I have buttons for half the colors and have sewn those on but need to find buttons for the rest of them. Will be looking for buttons this week.

Nothing else to report for this week so see you all in the postings - E :)

You have been a busy girl, Elysabeth. Now what have you been doing on your writing? How is Immogene coming along?

Thanks, Susanne. I should have the rest of the items added in short order.

Faye, I've put my writing on hold for a bit but I hope to get back to it soon. The biggest thing I'm concentrating on now is trying to raise funds to be at some events coming - you know travel and booth rental and all that fun stuff - see you Thursday hopefully. E :)

You have been very busy! I like to sew for my granddaughter. She grows so fast that it keeps me busy.

I'll have to check out your store.

Karen, I used to sew. Still have a linen jacket that I made when I was in 8th grade that was totally French seamed (and no I can't still wear it). Kids definitely grow too quickly but pricing material and patterns and what not seem to cost as much as buying an outfit now - have posted your launch party blog posting - see you in the postings - E :)
