1. I might pick up the newsletter again in August. Might. A friend told me about a site that helps authors with newsletters, so I wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of making a pdf file anymore. That took a good three to four hours to get everything together in the newsletter and proof it over, believe it or not. This site is supposed to cut down that time. So I might give it a try. I hope in August things aren’t as stressful as they are right now.
2. Speaking of which, the third book is still up on Amazon. All I can say is that it feels like I’ve been violated. What’s worse is knowing that the thief might be reading my blogs. This is why I can’t say some stuff that’s been going on. But tomororw, I make some calls out to find a lawyer who’ll work with me. I realize Amazon has a legal obligation to take the third book down, and just so the thief is aware (in case he/she is reading this), I have all of my books registered at the copyright office for legal pursuits. That makes the lawyer’s job easier.
3. Bride of Second Chances is now up. I rushed through this one for obvious reasons. It’s up on Amazon and Smashwords.
It’s also registered with the US Copyright Office. Same is true for Suddenly a Bride. I didn’t want to make the announcement with Bride of Second Chances sooner in case the thief had access to my first draft blog. And now everyone can see why I can never post my stories up online again before it’s published. I know you can register a book before publication or preregister, but it’s easier for me if I don’t have to worry about it.

5. Regarding the contest… I know how hard it is to write the description of a book. I have seven entries total, and I decided that the two winners will get all of Rose Gordon’s books (which are three) and three of mine. For those who didn’t win, I’d still like to offer one of Rose Gordon’s books and my two newest ones (unless they want two of my older ones). So I’ll announce the winners in a post tomorrow. I’ll send an email to everyone about which books they want tomorrow, too.
