New Blog

Hello all, I have moved my blog from BlogSpot to Although I have not figured out how to do an RSS feed on that site, but that is where I will be blogging from now on. There are pictures and other stories besides humor there also.

I wanted to thank you for buying my books, the sales have been pretty good and I am very grateful to all of you.

Sales Goal

I have reached my goal for January and still have part of a day left. I sold 80 books in December on Amazon and hoped to sell 100 in January - I did - plus the one to Spain (which is really weird). I am going to set my goal in February to 100 because it is a short month, but you never know. Some people are selling 100 a day or even a 1,000 a day; but those are novels that have to do with vampires or romance.

Actually, I found out that 100 a month is pretty good for most ebooks and for humor it is excellent, since everyone's taste is different and what I think is funny is probably not to most others.

I entered some of my books in the Global ebook awards thing - cost me $79, but you also get some instructions on how to promote your books. So far I have been lazy and have not been doing that. I am hoping I can get a couple of good reviews from the judges even if I don't win the "coveted gold sticker" for the cover of the book. I still haven't figured out how the sticker would be applied to the cover if it is an ebook... ha ha.

I wish a few of the people who bought my books would go back and write a review on the book page because that helps sales, but so far nothing yet. This is why I spent the $79 so that maybe a judge will write one (hopefully positive and not too critical).

Anyway, that is my news for the day.

I am hoping that putting a link in the back of the books to my author page will make it easier for readers to review the book, but so far either the buyers have not read the book or just don't like to write reviews.

Sales are moving along at a slow steady pace, so I am very thankful for that; it means that there are people out there who like to laugh.

I have a recommendation for a really funny novel that comes from another Pacific Northwest Author: David Moore; Title: David & Suzanne's Big Frickin' Canadian Motorcycle Adventure. It is available in paperback for $14.95 and is currently free on Kindle. I do not know how long that will last, so get your copy ASAP.
Enjoy the read!!!

New Book Covers

I am in the process of changing my Funny Stories book covers from the Party Pig to the Laughing Tiger. Hopefully it will help book sales on Amazon. Not sure if I will change the covers on Smashwords, they take forever to republish, but I might do it in a couple of weeks. Here is what the new cover looks like. I have also posted links to the books and my author page at the end of each book for the convenience of the kindle owners.
