2016 … We’ve got this

Happy New YearWhat are your plans for 2016? Any goals, ambitions, dreams, maybe even resolutions?

Seriously, hit up the comments link at the top of this post and tell us what’s in store for you in the new year. Then give your hopes a bump; remember, we have 366 days this year.

As for me, I have a lot pinned on getting some serious promotion for my next book.

Kindle has a program searching for new or relatively unknown authors worthy of the company giving a leg up in publicizing a book. Gaining acceptance requires two things. One, of course, is a good book and I’m feeling great about “The Reporter and the Marmot.”

Two involves you.

The company wants writers who already have a following. So, when the time comes, I’ll be asking each of you to “nominate” my book. All you’ll have to do is click a button and give your e-mail address and it will help me.

But, wait, there’s something in it for you too.

If my book is selected for the program, everyone who nominated it gets a free copy of the e-book. It works, no catches; I’m currently reading a book that I nominated.

Trust me, I’ll let you know when it happens, asking you to act on it and to spread the word to your friends. Free e-books for all! Be patient. It will be at least another month or two.

OK, that’s more than I planned to say about that.

One more thing

But there’s one new thing starting today. You can sign up for my newsletter.

I plan to put out at least one a month. When something is happening, they will come more often but never too many. It is handled by MailChimp, a professional service that makes sure it’s all on the up-and-up, requiring double opt-in (so nobody enters your e-mail without you knowing) and offering an unsubscribe with each mailing.

Click this link and subscribe now and you can know what’s going on even if you don’t visit this blog regularly or if my social media sites fail to include you on every posting.

Meanwhile, keep me up-to-date with how your dreams for 2016 are working out.

    I haven’t read your last book yet! The Reporter and the Sloth. I’ve got to order that one. I look forward to reading that one and then the next. Yes, I have resolutions. You can (or maybe already have) read them on my blog. Happy New Year!
