Last summer, after my husband left me with 5 kids and very little money, I did what any logical woman who hasn’t had a real job in 12 years would do. I decided to publish a book. The Upside Down World ~ A Book of Wisdom in Progress was the result. It came out almost exactly a month after the ex left. I still haven’t decided if this was a stroke of genius or the work of a crazy person, but the family computer did die the moment I sent the final revisions off to the pubisher. Which may not have been a vote of great confidence on its part.
All the rest of life also seemed to be conspiring against me as well. Due to unrelentingly bad luck and finances, I didn’t even have the money for gas to drive to local bookstores to get it on their shelves, much less set-up events. The Kindle version was a problem as well. It takes much more formatting to produce an ebook than a simple PDF file. It’s not difficult, but I wasn’t exactly in any state of mind to learn how to do something new. The resulting ebook was pretty messy and I eventually pulled it off the virtual bookshelf.
I still don’t have the money to promote the book properly, but I do now have the mental wherewithall to learn how to format an ebook. So, I am pleased to announce that the Kindle version of The Upside Down World ~ A Book of Wisdom in Progress is now available. In it you will find essays, stories, poetry, spiritual memoir, quotes, art work and more. It’s an easy read, but my goal and hope is that the ideas you encounter will remain with you long after you are done reading it.
So, if you have been wondering about me or are looking for solid, spiritual lessons to carry you though your own challenging times, I hope that you will consider downloading your copy of The Upside Down World ~ A Book of Wisdom in Progress from Amazon today.
For those of you who regularly read the blog, you can have new posts delivered straight to your kindle with a $.99/mo subscription from Amazon. Even if you aren’t that into your Kindle, I could really use some reviews. If any of my regular readers would be willing to head over and put in a good word for me, I’d be mighty appreciative!
