Your Comments

BTW, I'm still looking forward to any comments or questions that you might have about my new book, Just Line Around. :)


Marketing is Murder!

Because my children's book was published by a relatively small publisher, a lot of the marketing effort has fallen to me. My publisher has provided me with many free and effective ways to share information about my book over the web. Some of those include signing up for Google Alerts, signing up on the website HARO (, and receiving other free e-mail suggestions.

My goal: to read and post to at least 3 blogs per day, read the three e-mails sent by HARO each day and respond to any of the queries that apply to my book, maintain and update my personal website, and post to this blog at least once per week. Needless to say, I'm doing terrible at it! (Did you notice the last date of my blog post?)

I'll keep plugging away at it though, in the hopes that it will help out in the long run. Do you have any suggestions for me? Ideas to get the word out about my book? Do you need any suggestions or have questions about the information above? Please let me know. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Fort Worth Loves Stew!

I just found out that Fort Worth ISD is going to purchase 150 copies of my children's book for their elementary art teachers! Awesome!

Become a Fan

I just created a new Facebook page for my writing ventures. Become my fan to the right!


Pricing Weirdness

I'm expecting my first bulk shipment of my book from today! Does it seem strange to anyone else that I can get my children's book cheaper from a retailer than through my publisher? I'm trying to renegotiate with them... I'll keep you posted. :)

Stew has arrived!

Well, it's taken work, by my children's book has finally been released. We had a huge push yesterday on, and my book made it all the way to 788 in sales rank! Since it started at 97,000, I'd say that's a great improvement!! Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about my book, and I'll keep you posted about upcoming events and signings.

Stew 2

I'm starting to play around with some ideas for a sequel... probably something relating to colors. What do you think? Any other ideas?
