Oh wow!

Last night before I went to bed there had been 59 downloads of my book on the first day of the two day promotion and I was rapt with that. This afternoon I've logged on to check my account and there have been 833 downloads. Amazing stuff the power of social media.

Thank you to everyone who shared the link from yesterdays post for me, it's much appreciated. There's still a few hours left for anyone who still wants to grab their free copy.

Today hubby and I took advantage of the spectacular spring weather to go to a country swap meet and then we stopped at the Meadows Country Fair on the way home. Beautiful weather for being outdoors, I bought lots of flowers for my front garden and we also purchased a cherry tree.

I'm amazed at how much stuff people have to sell at these things and I did tell hubby that I could spend at least three weeks at one of these swap meets selling his 'shed junk' and I could probably retire on the income from it all.

Hubby has a passion for cars, motors, tractors, tools and any piece of machinery in existence so I wasn't overly enthusiastic about this mornings' outing but considered it a research activity because I plan on setting my next book in the Adelaide Hills and wanted to look at the area with different eyes.

When we come home from these sort of things without having purchased a tractor or another car I consider it a successful outing. Today was a successful outing, we only came home with another outdoor heater - our fourth, but who's counting?

This afternoon he's fitting roller doors to a mates industrial shed and I'm writing. Doing what we both do best.

Well that's me for today, I have another novel to get underway. My youngest tells me I should be writing more and I should be doing it quicker and then I can give up my day job. He's a clever kid isn't he?

Hope you all have a great week, I'm not sure what my work week will be like given the drama of Friday but I think for now it's a case of sit down, shut up and hold on because I think we're in for a bumpy ride in the coming weeks.


  1. Fantastic. Congratulations!!!!!!!
