In the meantime, I’ve stayed busy doing what I like to do best and that’s writing. The last of November I finished the family history and tree book I wrote for my family. This last weekend now that I have high speed I was able to download that on the website and make the book cover. The book is ready to sell and this afternoon I shipped out several.
While I formatted the family book in November, I entered the NaNoWriMo 50,000 word contest and finished just before the end of the month. I must say it was ify toward the last whether I’d make the deadline. Now all I have to do is edit that book and print it when I have time. There were close to 500 contestants in my area and only 37 wrote enough words to be a winner.
I’ve been working on my next Amish book. I’m getting well along on that. Several readers have emailed me to find out how I’m coming with the book. It’s nice to know they like what I write. The last email said, I’ve read many Amish books, and I like yours the best because the characters seem so real." Makes me think I’m doing something right.
I had an email from a Internet based book publisher recently. After seeing some of my books, he wanted me to sign up with him. After all this time, a publisher noticed my writing and asked me. Several years ago I would have been delighted, but circumstances have changed now. I emailed back that I was doing just fine on my own. Thanks anyway.
Now I’m working on an author website. Have a lot of work to do yet but it’s at Writersownwords.com/booksbyfay. Readers will be able to read my blog and about my books plus see where they can buy the books, and there’s always my Booksbyfay Bookstore to look at on www.booksbyfaybookstore.weebly.com.
