Onward! Sail On! (Or Is It ‘Ceylon’?)

The other day I received what is laughingly called my quarterly “sales” report. Somehow I think I’m doing something wrong.

This blog was set up to encourage people to buy my books. Well, I always knew I had no talent for publicity. I couldn’t sell carbon credits to California Democrats.

Nevertheless, in the spirit of that most politically incorrect hero, Columbus, I shall persevere. I shall sail on. (The only reason people believe Columbus was trying to get to India is because some of his men thought he was yelling “Ceylon! Ceylon!” A joke first told in 1493, and somewhat the worse for wear.) At least I’m not subjecting anyone to The Great Gatsby with a rap “music” soundtrack.

But you’ve obviously done at least a decent job of promoting, because I was interested the first time I learned about Bell Mountain 😀

    1. I was so hoping to attract the Christian homeschooling community–right up their alley, I thought. Well, at least I’m still in print, so there’s always a chance I might catch on.

      You have no idea how I appreciate your support.

  2. Lee, Are books 5 and 6 available yet?

    1. #5, “The Fugitive Prince,” is in production. It should be ready by the end of Spring. As for #6, it still has to get a cover, typesetting, etc.
