Wisdom & Folly at the Indianapolis Homeschool Convention

Guess what? I’m taking Wisdom & Folly to the Indianapolis Homeschool Convention next weekend! Oh my goodness, I hope they love it!

The IAHE (or Indiana Association of Home Educators) hosts a yearly convention, full of workshops, general sessions, and exhibits galore.

And I get to be one of the exhibitors.

The Indiana chapter of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) of which I am the current treasurer, purchased a booth and invited their members to bring their fiction. Of course I jumped on it!

(I’m so attending the session “Never Give Up: The Critical Importance of Finishing What You’ve Started.” That can apply to so many areas of life!)

I remember being dragged–ahem, I mean, attending–a few homeschool conventions with my mom when I was young. My favorite booths were those that sold books, preferably the fiction kind, as my mom learned everything new and trending in the homeschool world. I didn’t care about any of that other stuff back then. I just wanted to read.

I can’t say my perspective has changed much (Me? Homeschool? No way. I would kill my kids. Kill. Them.) but my passion for fiction remains the same.

(Please let me say many of my friends homeschool, and I admire, respect, and pretty much adore them for being able to do what I cannot. Rock on! So jealous.)

The part of me who remembers that little girl, hungry for a good story, hopes to be able to bless someone at IAHE as I wished a certain vendor (corner both, stuffed full of discount books, didn’t want kids around unless their parents were paying) would have blessed me. A little grace for a lover of stories with grimy hands.

Wow. I feel like that got real fast.

Back to fun and happy!

So anyway, I will be there, selling my book, and signing as many copies as possible!

Will you be there this year? I would love to see you!

In Him,

Michele

Zombie Takeover, Final Edit

I can’t even tell you how many edits this baby has been through. From critiques to line edits to copy edits to content edits, it has been shaped, revised, edited, then edited some more.

I kept wanting to have it published, kept thinking it was done, but…

There was just something missing.

I didn’t know what, but it wasn’t the best it could be.

Enter the Editorial Review.

(Insert heavenly singing of the Hallelujah Chorus here…)

Now, Nadine Brandes has no idea I’m going to do this, but I have to brag on her a little bit. (Yes, the Nadine Brandes, author of A Time to Die. Such a good book!)

I hired Nadine to complete an editorial review on my manuscript, and I was all pins and needles waiting to hear what she had to say.

(Not sure what an editorial review is? Read about it here: Nadine Brandes Editorial Services.)

Not only did I make her laugh (Yes!), she loved the story and had so many exactly-what-I-needed-to-hear suggestions.

I am now ready to give my book baby to the world. (And the world will be much happier reading it without all of those pesky little errors.) ;)

In other words, I’ll have a real release date soon! Ahhh!!! Happy screaming!

I can’t wait!

In Him,

Michele

So sad!

I just wanted to let you know that February is the last month you can get both of my paperbacks for $9.99 each!

(insert sobbing emoticon here)

I know! It’s so sad!

I’ll try to be as brief with the details as possible, but I got an email saying Wisdom & Folly’s distributor had to raise their prices, and, “Would you like to raise the price of your book as well?”

Um, no!!!

Seriously. I originally tried to get them to price the book at $5. No one would listen to me. (Apparently paying for each book you sell is a very, very bad thing. Who knew?)

But the numbers say I just can’t keep it at $9.99. (Why, IngramSpark? Why?)

So, as of March first, Wisdom & Folly will now be $12.99 each. But there’s good news! I promise!

The eBook is staying at just $2.99, and there may-even-might be a sale for $.99 for Zombie Takeover’s launch. Woohoo!

(Which I’m working on like a mad crazy person. Seriously. My husband is questioning my sanity right about now.)

So that’s it. That’s my news.

And I hope my very next post is Zombie Takeover’s release date.

(holds breath)

Squeal! I can’t wait!!!

In Him,

Michele

(Btw, you can purchase Wisdom & Folly on Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Just so you know. Happy Reading!) :)
