- What is your favorite marketing task that has resulted in a sale?
My favorite marketing task is attending book festivals around. It is amazing who would be interest in your books. You can also network with other authors, publishers, and illustrators.
2. What do you like about your publisher or why did you decide to Self-Publish?
I decided to self-publish because, I have the authority of being myself of my creations. If and Agent/Publisher would like to work me, I’m open as well.
3. What do you have under your bed?
4. Are you a plotter or a pantser when you are writing?
I’m a plotter when I’m writing.
5. Do you write in a bubble or do you prefer critique groups, writing buddies or other companionship during the process?
I write in a bubble then I usually ask for family and friends to critique my work. I ask children what do they think about my books. I am always open to selective criticism. They are the readers.
6. When do ideas come to you and how do you capture them?
Ideas come to me when I’m cooking, watching tv, or just around the neighborhood. I completely stop everything I’m doing and write it down. If I don’t have access to a pen or paper, I usually put it my cell phone notes.
7. What is your favorite word processing program and what other tools do you use, pen, notebooks, white board, index cards, finger on
fogged bathroom mirrors?
My favorite word processing program is Word 2016. I carry index cards in my pursed when we go on vacations. When I’m home I use my sons easel to help me brainstorm ideas.
A Mothers Love: The E.R.B. to my soul
This book is about mothers and the length they will go for their children. My mother leaving us was the most difficult thing we ever had to deal with. A mother is something that stays with us forever and will never be forgotten. My mother was our rock and we are a piece of her. We will always cherish her and remember all the good things she did for her family and community.
This book was created for parents explaining loss of a love one to their children. It’s always good to explain death and cry for someone you love. When a loved one dies, children feel and show their grief in different ways. How kids cope with the loss depends on things like their age, how close they felt to the person who died, and the support they receive.
Momma….Momma…. MOMMA!! The void will never be filled , and our hearts will forever remain lonely. Empty of your presence (talking about Edna’s excellence) and your motherly touch. We’re your product in which you loved so much. As every day goes by and the hours pass you’re finally in your Heavenly Home with Esau, Elijah and Mama Cora at last. We feel your strength even though you may not be around. In fact, we all know you’re in Heaven looking down.
Thank you Kimberly Jones for being my guest. I am wishing you best of sales.
