Confused yet?

Well, then I am just not doing my job if you aren’t.

Remember that first book was a children’s story.  Well, not all my writing is suitable for children.  That is why, if you remember, a new blog for more mature stories was started.  J-Kolb.com  to be exact.  Over there I just posted my first thousand words of the original rough draft of Sinister. That is where I am starting with the rewrite.

The Irish Wedding

Originally posted on Blog Me This….:

Green and Black
Purple and Gold
The day of promise
A vow is told

The Groom in kilts
A Bride in white
The aisle they walked
A stunning site

Irish maid past
Now given to share
The Man of her dreams
A life declared

They blessed the claddaghs
And gave their heart
To say forever
Til death we part

The cake is cut
And glasses raised
The toast of joy

Buy It, Thanks!

Amazon. Kindle Store. Search.  Snowball.  That first entry? Warren Buffet who? No, no, no, look at the second.  The cute one.  Puppy on green background.  Yes, that one.  Buy it.  Thanks!

Snowball Cover

That’s it. THAT is the ad campaign.  Shh, don’t tell the marketing director, I think I just did his job.

It has been a week, have no clue, no one will tell me if it sold, how well it sold the first week.  Two…

Branding

So, if you have check out the ‘by Julie Kolb’ blog, you know there have been some major blog cleaning.  (The first story made into a book is available on Amazon in the Kindle store.  If you do a search in the Kindle store, it is number two in the search list, right under Warren Buffett’s similarly titled book.)

Now that there is an actual ebook available, there is a direction for branding.  When…

Have you ever started a business?  Some of you will say yes, some no.  Well, here now, we are still in the throes of start to start up.

Editing Process.

Details … Z . . z . . z . .

Details … Z . . z . . z . .

As always, it is working out details.  In this case ones we didn’t realize until we got this far.  Here is where a degree in publishing, marketing, and writing would probably have come in handy.  Luckily, there are those who have been able to consult with some wisdom.

Our time line has again been reconfigured.  Thankfully there are still six more months in this year.  Good thing my expectation…

Vacation

Yep.  I am taking one.

So, while this might appear to be a lame post, it really isn’t.  I am truly on vacation.  Out of town, out of my normal environment, and catching up with a friend.

So, while she might have become a little lame, and won’t tell me that the shirt I just bought needs to go to my daughter.  That’s ok, my daughter will surely let me know.  Tsk, tsk, we are all slipping in our old…
