1st Qtr. Report- Tate Publishing

Yesterday I received my report from Tate Publishing on the first Qtr. internet sales and Distribution sales.  In my mind I was preparing myself for a low number because I have only had one event since the beginning of this year.  To my surprise the report said that I had sold 22 books from January 2010-April 2010.  I know that 22 doesn't sound like a whole lot but when you are expecting 1 or 2 it really is a big number!  This is so exciting for me that people are buying my book and reading my fan page and blog. 

I pray for this chain to continue and that the word will spread even further than it already has.  My goal, although may seem out of reach is 5,000 copies sold!  That is when I can submit another book and get my upfront fee back.

Thank you to all of you for all the support and for purchasing my book!! God Bless to you and your family:)

T-Ball Field or Tee Tee Field??

For the ones who don't know Adam my oldest child was the inspiration for That Puppy Dog Took My Boots and now his little brother Austin is following in his footsteps.  Adam just started t-ball and it is so much fun for the whole family! At the first practice I was snapping pictures of everything Adam did.  Kevin, my husband, was on the field helping Adam and I was suppose to be watching Austin.  As Adam gets up to the batters box, Austin says "Mommy I need to tee tee" so I said "Wait just a minute and we will go."  I snapped a couple more pictures of Adam batting and turn to get Austin's hand and he is tee teeing on the t-ball field from the dugout!!!  BOYS!?!?!  There was a little girl sitting in the dugout with her grandmother and the grandmother had her hand over the little girls face!  I was so embarrassed and I don't get embarrassed easily:)

I see a new book coming to mind....LOL
