July Releases

I haven’t been idle in recent weeks, despite my infrequent blog posting. I’ve completed a 3-book series designed to help aspiring authors format, upload, and market their books. Having gone through the self-publishing process 16 times now (you can see all my books here), I’ve nearly figured it out through the tedious process of trial and error. It’s no picnic, let me tell you!

Just like last month’s release, Book Weaving, these three books feature more of Claudia Guzes amazing cartoons. After all, “Laughter can relieve tension, soothe the pain of disappointment, and strengthen the spirit for the formidable tasks that always lie ahead.” –Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Since we’ve become unwitting experts in tension, disappointment, and formidable tasks, why not throw some laughter into the mix? At least that was my thought when I opted to include some cartoons!

Book Building: A Beginner’s Guide to Crafting Your Book can help you properly organize your manuscript. Book It: A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing and Marking on Amazon will help you navigate the publishing process. Book Hawking: A Beginner’s Guide to Marketing Your Self-Published Book is full of additional ways you can get your book into the hands of readers whether you’ve self-published or gone the traditional publishing route.

If you click on the cover, you can see a preview of the book.

What better way to enjoy a summer quarantine than with a new book? Go ahead and pick these up for free over the next few days. In addition, you can get A Woman’s Survival Guide to Disasters in Rural Mexico for 99 cents. Happy reading!

My First Podcast!

Expat Mama Kimberlee Thorne-Harper has featured me on one of her podcasts!

Here’s a summary of what we talked about:

“Camille Flores met her husband in the US at a Mexican restaurant where they were both working. After a minor pullover with the police without his driver’s license, it looked like he wouldn’t be able to renew his driver’s license or work in the US ever again. Moreover, his deportation would eventually be imminent, so they as a family decided to “self-deport”. She tells what it was like for her to try and adapt to a new country and culture in a remote area of Mexico, with no basic services like electricity or other services for several years. She discusses her experience with Mexico’s schools are vs. schools in the US, how their now 17-year-old is schooled now, and what their lives are like, what they do for work, and much more. A discussion on how varied Mexico can be from region to region. She truly has an amazing story. Her quote or motto is this: “I do the difficult immediately; the impossible takes me a little longer.””
