As of late, marketing continues with Torn Hearts. The recent bankruptcy filing of Barnes and Noble have put a slight damper on book signings. Which means the marketing department and myself are looking into more niche events. These are the locally owned and/or family operated businesses that want to encourage and promote other local businesses and entrepreneurs. It is my hope to have several of these events scheduled before Mother’s Day since I feel strongly that Torn Hearts would make a great gift.
Although, it may sound exciting to say a book signing is at large chain retailer, I find myself excited about the more intimate setting of a local establishment. Those are the ones I have truly enjoyed, like the one at Oasis Christian Bookstore near my hometown.
It had been a LONG time since I had gone back home. I was unsure of what to expect, and I must say the welcome I received took me by surprise. I was able to reconnect with some dear friends over greasy sandwiches at my favorite dive. My sisters and I even spent the late afternoon and evening together laughing. Not one single downer the whole day! As I get older, it is those rare days I crave. We would all do well to count ourselves lucky when those days come and make a mental note to remember as much as we can about the day.
Okay, moving to another subject before I start to cry… Writing is coming along smoothly. Some days are more productive than others, but I keep plugging away. I have a working title, A Fish Out of Water, but I’m thinking of changing it to, She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not. If you like the sound of one over the other leave me a comment. I love feedback!
On another note, Jamy and her family are still recovering and I hope to have more news for you soon about the progression of their adoption and how sales from Torn Hearts are helping with that wonderful endeavor.
