An Author's Dream--Having a Reader Love All Your Books

Customer awaits signing at bookstore event

At one of my last book signings for 2011, I had a wonderful reader come up and buy a copy of each of my novels and more than one copy of a couple of them. What a delight! Isn't that every author's dream--to have readers love your books? It makes me wonder what will happen if everyone gets an e-reader. Will some people still want a "real" book to hold in their hands?

I hope so.

My wish for 2012 is more readers who love my books. It makes life as a writer feel worthwhile!

On Friday, January 6, Diana Cosby, International best-selling author, will be my first ever blog guest. She will give away a copy of her latest novel, His Destiny, to one of the folks who comment on her post. Please stop by for a visit.

Thanks, Hilary! The photo is of my customer when she was purchasing the books. I created the painting for my book signings.

I left a message on my FB page as well. This inspires me to write a book of my own. I still want to purchase books for my 9 grandchildren and to hold a real book in my hands to read any day.Thank you Mary for such an informative site. I'm so glad that I was introduced to join in by Monti.Thank you and Happy New Year! Mrs. April Hayden
