Publisher's Best Seller List

This week my book, "Love, Lies & Deceit" made it to #6 on my Publisher's Best Sellers List for romantic mystery/suspense. I am very proud of this since it was released back on December 17, 2009. I'm hoping this proves that it has some long-lasting selling power. The first week it was released it made it to #10 on the Publisher's Best Seller list for all books that week.

Wish me luck in keeping it up. You can purchase my book at Red Rose Publishing.

I also had a wonderful week for writing. On Friday, I managed to get out about 5 pages on my current project and it felt so good. I'm hoping for more tomorrow, but I have to clean the house and do the laundry first.

Thanks,
Carol

I'm a Laptop onwer

I did it, I bought a laptop last week. It wasn't the one I wanted. The store didn't have that one, but I'm happy with what I did buy. I've been spending the week getting it set up with all the things I want on it and adding to my favorites list. I have decided to upgrade to a newer version of Microsoft Word and will have to wait until next payday to afford that.

Now, if I can just find time to sit down and do some writing. My new day job has been keeping me so busy that when I finally get home from work, I just crash and am too tired to do anything. I haven't written a word in over two weeks. I am going to have to kick myself in the rear and make myself write. The good thing is that I have been making mental notes of edits I want to make on my WIP (work-in-progress) manuscript.

I had to miss my local writers' group meeting last month due to a doctor's appointment and guess what, I'm going to have to miss this month's for the same reason. I can't win.

Enjoy your spring,
Carol

Buying a laptop

The day has finally arrived. Our tax check came in and I'm off today to buy a laptop. Until now, I have doing most of my writing on an old AlphaSmart.

I liked typing on this because it was light and convenient. You could only see 4 lines at a time, so I did more typing and edited it when I uploaded to my desktop computer. But, now I need a laptop for so many reasons. My day job recently changed and I will be doing more traveling, so laptop will keep me in touch with home more easily and I can edit my finished manuscripts on it, something I could not do with the AlphaSmart.

Next time, I'll report back with what kind of laptop I got.

The Great Computer Wait is on


Yep, that's right. I am waiting for a new computer. Well, not exactly a computer, but our tax refund so I can buy a new computer; a laptop to be exact. I've wanted one forever, but with our budget being tight, like everyone else, it just wasn't in the cards. So, after getting our taxes finished, I told my husband that I would like to use part of it to get a laptop and he agreed. The rest? Well, I'm still paying on some medical bills, so I suppose that would be a good thing to use the rest for. Now, if we would only get that tax check. I'll keep you updated.
