Like most people, we are currently reeling from the events unfolding around us and in the world at large: pandemic, mass protests, economic freefall, you name it, we got it. It hasn’t been the most productive of quarantines as far as our writing goes. Mentally, we are all kind of in survival mode. Every morning brings a new outrage and that just increases our need to hole up in our homes and avoid it all like the plague. (Get it? The plague….)
In any case, our mom Nancy has been working in her yard and garden and focusing on home projects. Anne has been making glass mosaics and binging Netflix, when she isn’t facilitating distance learning for her two boys. Eric has been working at his new job. Unfortunately, he’s on night shift and has had a hard time adjusting to the new work/sleep schedule.
When we last blogged, we’d ported over all our books and short stories to Smashwords. (All titles are still available on Amazon.com) It seems to have been a smart move when it comes to visibility, as we’ve had 178 free downloads since we went live. On the flip side, we’ve made no paid sales and we’ve recieved no reviews. As any author will tell you, a book lives and dies by its reviews, and no review is almost as bad as a negative one. We’ll stay the course. We’ve gone live this morning with a sale on Creek House. You can pick up a copy on Smashwords for the low, low price of $0.99 with a 50% off coupon, now through July 1st. Coupon Code is QA74C.
Now that we’re catching up with our home projects and we’re running out of shows to binge on Netflix, it might be time to get back to writing. We hope that you are all not just surviving, but thriving, as hard as that may seem right now. Thanks for sticking with us.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
