Marketing: Unfamiliar Territory

I wrote three books, currently working on number four. The problem.... I am having trouble marketing my book to others.

I love writing. It is truly my favorite hobby, but how do I spread the word?

By nature I am an introvert. So I shy away from attention. Promoting a book requires that I step outside of my comfort zone.

Am I ready for that? Of course, I have no choice. I want to have Assumptions Abound in 50,000 hands by next year. So, my ambitions are strong, now I have to work on reaching my goal.

I will be starting a series on writing and publishing your very own ebook.

It is my hope that I can encourage others to write, if that's their hope. It's easy to conceive an idea, when you literally see it come to fruition it's quite powerful.

I want to help you make your own dreams come true.

Handwritten Teacher's Pet

I just found the handwritten book that I completed when I was thirteen. It is quite interesting reading the thoughts of a teenage Sage.

I would've never guessed that I would be publishing the books that I first conceived as a teenager.

I am also amazed at my imagination at that time. If computers were as prevalent then as they are now, this book would already be typed.

I can't wait to get started. There are three full notebooks detailing the heroine's story. From the looks of it, her life is filled with twists and turns that gurantee to entertain. Keep checking back for updates on Teacher's Pet.

Stay tuned!

Meet Carlotta DeLacosta

Carlotta is hiding something. These days isn't everyone? A devoted and loving mother and grandmother, Carlotta dedicates her life to her family. Carlotta has many secrets hiding in her closet. Secrets that would destroy her child, if he were to ever find out. She is a dangerous woman with a serious ax to grind. Who is she after?

As the Black Bird Detective continues solving murders, Carlotta's story begins to unfold. What you find out will shock you!

Sneak Peak of My New Young Adult Series - Teacher's Pet


She looked around the crowded lounge. There were more people in that place than she had ever seen. The bass and tempo of the music created a certain vibe in the club. She could hear her watch beeping through the music.

She was too afraid to look at her wrist to check the time. She continued dancing as if everything was fine. She didn’t have time to worry about what awaited her at home.

He whispered softly in her ear. Standing over six feet tall with broad shoulders and a chiseled body, she was in love. When she first met him she couldn’t help but lick her lips in anticipation. Sure he was over ten years older than her, but did that really matter?

Subconsciously she knew that it did. The fact that their relationship was forbidden only added to the excitement of things. When he leaned closer to her, she tried to kiss him. He pulled away. She knew exactly why he couldn’t kiss her. It was beyond dangerous.

She allowed her hand to linger on his large bicep as she talked to her friends. They were motioning for her to go along with them. She ignored them. She was having too much fun. This is what she dreamed about.

“It’s time to go” her friend Savannah yelled. “I’ll take you home” he said eagerly. She thought about it and then shrugged. “No, I’d better go” she said as she walked away from him. It was time to go. "Don't forget your math assignment is due tomorrow" he said with a sly grin. "I'm sure I'll get extra credit" she said winking at him.
She didn't notice the way he was looking at her.

She walked towards the club exit with her friends running eagerly in tow. As they approached the corner of the street, she heard a squeal. She turned and faced her friends. She didn’t see anyone. “Savanna! Jaden!” she called out. Her words dissipated in the night air. Savanna had disappeared. She couldn’t imagine where she would have run off too.

She stood still for a moment, thinking. Should she go back and look for her friends or should she run? Suddenly, the cool night air grew quiet. She could hear footsteps. She turned to run, but couldn’t move. Something or someone had her. She screamed out for help. “Someone Help!” she called out into the empty dark night.

The last thing she heard was his voice in her ear. “Don’t worry my sweet, we will be together forever”.
