Going Up?

I sometimes feel like I'm climbing stairs like this. In life and in my head.

But I wanted to report that my eBook is still selling. I get nervous when I visit Author Central on Amazon and see the stats going down. Wow, that's scary! The book had a two week sag and I thought, well that's it then. But it went back up and it has these jumps in sales, goes down for a few days, then it will go back up. Right now it's at #87,712. Not great, but not bad either.

So I want to thank everyone out there who has bought Vampire Ascending, and have told other people about it, or have had me as a guest on your blog, or have made a comment about the book. Thank you!

Also another thing I want to let everyone know--and it might sound like a broken record--but I cannot see my FOLLOWERS on any of my blogs. I lost being able to see those who have joined Muse, and now I have one new follower--my first follower--on Lorelei's Writing Journal--and I don't even know who it is. So, if you know who you are, let me know. Silly that I have this problem, but it began about 2 months ago. I can't bring it up either in my dashboard. What a mess, but I'll live. But I want people to know about it because they might be a little miffed that I'm not returning the favor and following them. I can't if I don't know who you are and don't have your link--so leave that too, if you want me to know.

In other news. They put in the new window in the kitchen yesterday, and today they put the finish on the cabinets and drawers. We're having trouble with the vent/light over the stove. It goes off. We are insisting they get a "professional" in here (like an electrician who has the know how/tools, etc.) to discover the problem. We think its old wiring.

Oh, and I see that my follower number on Muse is nearly reaching my age--wow. Muse is middle aged now. LOL! A Baby Boomer! Woohoo! Well, not really. But you get the drift.

I hope to do a little writing in the next few days, so if I'm not around, you'll know why.

All for now, everyone have a great Friday!!


  1. Oh, Blogger-Schmogger...anyway sounds like book sales are a lot like the stock market. How would you like to be a guess blogger toward the end of the month explaining your tales of woe or happy tales of being self-published. Inquiry minds would love to know.

    I'll send my e-mail via Facebook.

    PS I might the one follower on your Writing Journal. Silly me can't remember. But, I do blieve I pushed that button.

  2. That's great that your novel sales are going back up, yay! Here's hoping they keep going up and up!

  3. Okay, Shelly, I'd LOVE TO!! I'll be in touch. . .

    And Thanks Heather for the rooting me/my book on!

    That's me--Anonymous Lorelei [=
