Hi, to all my faithful friends and followers. I hope you all had a wonderful Martin Luther King holiday. Mine was busy, but great with the advent of our 14th grandchild.

I also received a new review at Amazon -- number 9. The person gave me a rating of 5 out of 5 and boosted my overall rating to 4.8 out of 5 -- thank you very much, reviewer. Not bad for a not-so-best selling novel. But then again, I have no idea how well it's selling, or not, and won't know until the end of March.

Have you been to my Amazon site and checked out the reviews, or even better wrote one? I've learned that the more reviews a writer gets, the higher the novel's rank at Amazon can go, and Amazon will put it higher on the best-selling list to capture more purchases.

It also helps to get tons of "Likes" and "Shares."

If I could get everyone reading this blog posting to click on the "Share" button on my Facebook pages, that would increase my marketing reach a lot as all of you have different "Friends" lists and posting to the "Public," would go to all your friends as well as mine.

Hint, hint, hint.

Now, I just need to find more time to write. Ever since I sold Bridgetown High, I haven't had a free minute to write. But, hang in there with me. I'll find a way somehow. Until then, you can share my frustration as a writer.

Thanks for following me. More to come.
