Thanks, everyone, for helping me reach my goal of 100 copies of Darkness Rising: Book One of The Catmage Chronicles. In fact, we overshot it and are now at 103 copies sold. I have now completely covered the cost of my promotional materials, which include the author copies I give out for marketing purposes. Time to order some more, in fact, as I’m running low.
I’ll be putting up the first three chapters as a freebie over the weekend both here and on my writer blog. Stay tuned.
Yesterday was quite a good day. Sarah made me my all-time favorite cookies, just like they used to be at the now-defunct bakery/deli from Irvington, Kartzmann’s. And I didn’t have to navigate the nasty counterpeople who were always yelling at each other. (Maybe that’s why the place went defunct, but man, they had great challah and corned beef and cookies and rolls and… well, you get the idea.) I have two more giant sugar cookies with multicolored nonpareils. The diet is on hold until after Thanksgiving, I think.
And don’t think I’m not thinking about our cousins in Israel who are under fire as we speak. Stay safe, and may God help Israel and quickly defeat her enemies.
