Hello, dears. Gram here today. My poor creator has been extremely busy today with the cleaning, grocery shopping, and errands. She doesn’t always listen to me about not cramming in too much on her off days from The Salon. I do hope I get her notes down right that she left me.
Strange. Don’t you think? You know, that she would have me fill in as a secretary while she attends to such things. I’m no writer whatsoever. But here goes…
Are any of you Indie writer’s out there feeling the market is SATURATED with books? Every cyber corner my creator seems to turn, is birthing a new one. She's beginning to believe there are polygons on fertility drugs out there multiplying times three.

Of course, she’s read several books on marketing and whatnot. I can’t tell you how many articles she’s scoured through on the web.

The both of us are wondering if there is more to it than determination and luck. Secondhand Shoes seems to drift in an ocean out there. Every now and then someone throws it a lifesaver.
It’s also available for all countries on Amazon. She has also written two short stories, The Partners’ Progeny and Time On Her Side.
Personally, I’ve been prodding her to write more. It clears the poo out of anyone’s head and gets you to focus. She does listen to me about that. Good thing, too. Wish my grand daughter, Lila, would listen. But if anyone has an eighteen year old at home,you know how that goes.
As for my creator’s titles, here they are:
Killer Stilettos, Book II in the Lila's Journey Series – Paranormal (we’re working on those rewrites together)
Combat Boots-3rd book Lila's Journey Series (all we have are some ideas jotted down)
White Trash and Pill Heads- Family drama/suspense (she’s on her fifth draft with this one)
Amuck in Time- cozy sci-fi (ideas jotted down)
The House on Mendocino Street-paranormal (first draft almost completed)
The Day It Happened-apocalyptic/thriller/suspense (two chapters drafted)
Well, dears. That’s all she wrote. I do hope you have a lovely, day, evening, and week.
